1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan

Review

I made the big mistake of getting this car at an auction and have had nothing but problems - stereo, ac, shocks, exhaust, i can go on and on. Clearly the previous owner took no care of this vehicle, so I can't really blame these things on the car. The ride and handling suffered greatly because of broken shocks, fuel economy is hovering around 16-17 mpg in the city due to a lack of a tune-up. The car is fun to drive though and has good power. I think my next car will be another Maxima SE, this time a mint-condition one from a dealer. Highly recommended as long as its in good condition.

Favorite Features

Great responses, good power/acceleration, fun to drive, lots of room, good exhaust sound (until it developed a hole and started to rev).

Suggested Improvements

Fold-down rear seats.
