1998 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan

Review

One of the best cars I've ever owned. Bought in 2000 with 40k miles, now has 128k and is going to the junk heap because some idiot crashed into it while parked at the curb- ins. co. is totaling it. Sigh. Excellent balance of performance, comfort, and mileage (25 mpg suburban, 27 highway, 5-speed) Still on the original clutch, original struts, has never needed Freon, burns no oil, has no rust, and the Bose stereo still sounds good. Had to replace one CV joint boot; otherwise only routine maintenance.

Favorite Features

Excellent build quality without ostentation; very good interior room and comfortable seats; smooth powerful 3.0L six.

Suggested Improvements

With leather seats and antilock brakes, this car would've been perfect (bought used). I added a strut tower brace which improved the chassis stiffness. Minor paint crazing on hood.
