This is my first Maxima and I would definitely buy another. The SE model is a really fun, sporty car with great road-hugging performance, especially with the Goodyear Eagle tires we have (our second set). I like the '98 design better than some of the newer models. The sound system is wonderful and reliability has been fantastic (current mileage 60,000). My daughter drives it mostly now and I feel confident the vehicle will operate flawlessly. She won't turn loose of it.
road handling, great ac & heating system, sound system,fun to drive
smoother ride, the SE suspension while improves handling is stiff and bumpy
