1998 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

While there is a special place in my heart for this car, I can't recommend the GXE. With such a powerful engine, the car was all over the place. The extra handling power of the SE is necessary. I loved the way this car looked, inside and out, especially with the spoiler. Interior materials felt premium to me. Loved the beige velour seats. It was pretty well equipped for a base model with no options.

Favorite Features

Powerful, refined and efficient V6 make it a pleasure to drive. Well equipped for a base model. Comfortable interior.

Suggested Improvements

GXE does not have the necessary hardware to handle V6 power. If you buy this car, get the SE. It needs the sports suspension, limited slip and traction control. The manual can be tricky and has long throws. I actually got rid of the car because the transmission was starting to go.
