Love My Maxima!

1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought my fully-equipped 97 Maxima SE with 7-8 miles on it in May of 97. Have had it for almost 5 years now and the only problem I've had is a failed alternator at around 50,000. The Maxima is a smooth and fun car to drive, with pretty good handling and acceleration. The cabin is ergonomically designed, comfortable, and roomy, altough it could be better insulated from road noise. Nissan could improve the Maxima's gas mileage. I don't seem to get good gas mileage. Maybe it's because I enjoy driving the car and pushing it to its limit so much.

Favorite Features

Fun to drive, adequate acceleration, very smooth ride, good road feel, interior and exterior design.

Suggested Improvements

Additional horsepower, more precise steering, xenon headlights, more well insulated cabin, and better gas mileage.
