1998 Nissan Maxima Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this maxima after owning x3 other Nissans. I work home health and have driven this car 169,000 miles while all my co-workers have had new vehicles since employment, I am still driving my Maxima to the "Max". I do feel that the depreciation\trade-in value of such and expensive vehicle should be higher and does deter my notions of purchasing another new one.


Best Features

The smooth ride, the bose stereo system,and the general status related to driving it.


Worst Features

Lowering cost or increasing trade-in value. Lower financing options for those purchasing certified preowned.

Review

This is the most dependable car I've ever owned. I put on 100 miles driving to work each day, and have owned the car for nearly 6 years. I change the oil every 6,000 miles, and that is it! What a great car! Highly recommended. Every option still working

Review

I've owned quite a few cars in my days, but this is the best! The Maxima is not only bulletproof, but it is easy to mod if you are into that. Dollar for dollar it has to be the best car on the road. My 4th gen is still a timeless style. I love the giddyup this car has when I dust those Honda ricers who want to play. Not your Grandma's grocery getter!


Best Features

automatic climate control, Bose stereo, great VQ engine


Worst Features

Telescopic steering wheel for those of us with long legs

Review

I purchased this used Maxima that was three years old with 12,000 miles. It is a wonderful road car - I have taken a 3,700 mile vacation and averaged about 27 MPG. No problems ever except the alternator recall which was taken care of with no issues at all. I can only hope the 2004/2005 Maximas are as good as my '98! Best car I have ever owned along with my 99 Toyota Camry.


Best Features

Good performance, great gas mileage for size of car, this car is faultless. I much prefer it to some other American built makes I have owned in the recent past.
