Vehicle1998 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan
ReviewReally got used to the SE firm suspension, it rides fairly low and sports carish. The power is great when the knock sensor isn't on the fritz. Milage is great for a V6 I think we averaged almost 30mpg on our last trip. We looked and looked for a 5-speed and when we finally found a good one we snagged it. Now I know why they are so rare. If you could drop a Honda 5- speed in the max it would be great but I'd pass on Nissan's manual. The car shifts like a 1-ton Ford, long throw, linkage by "Gumby", it is impossible to drive smoothly, and I've had standard trannys all my life.
Best FeaturesPower is great really miss it after trading for a 4-banger Camry. Handles well, loves corners. Great milage. Always did like the looks of the car.
Worst Features5-speed sucks, would rather not have the option if they're not going to do it right. The Maxima is missing nice touches that it should have, most other cars in it's class do such as, being able to move windows down/up for a few seconds after turning the key off, and auto headlights
