1998 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

The car has been reliable: small problems include battery replacement under warranty and a front-end squeak that dealers have not been able to fix. The rear suspension lands with a harsh thud when going over speed bumps with both rear wheels. If only 1 wheel goes over the bump it's fine. The engine is great!!! The clutch is getting close to replacement after 76000 hard (not auto-journalist level of hard though) miles. I love my car and have problems finding a potential replacement. I have money to buy a more expensive car, but even then I can't find a car that is as fast, fun, and reliable as my $18K Maxima.

Favorite Features

Engine. PPG Front Windshield (does not crack due to chips). Low price ($19,100 out the door).

Suggested Improvements

Rear suspension. Better stock tires and raise speed governer above 112 MPH.
