I just turned 17 two weeks ago and to my delight my perents bought me a '98 Maxima SE with all the options availible that year except side airbags. I am known for having a lead foot and the Maxima handles that well. My friend's and I timed the 0-60 time at 6.8 seconds with the car in power mode. The power mode lets the car rev higher and allows the car to shift more aggressively. The BOSE stereo is one of the best standard stereo's I have ever heard in a car and is far better than the Infinity stereo in my old '96 Chrysler Concord. So if you want a hot rod on the weekend, a comfortable driving car Mnday through Friday but are on a budget than I highly recommend the '98 Maxima.
Sunroof with the wind deflector that signifacantly reduces the wind noise with the sunroof open. The Engine of course and the spoiler gives the Maxima Even a sportier look.
The heated seats take to long to get warmed up, Alam goes off for no reason and the keyless entry fob only worked half the time.
