Bought this car new in 1999. Nine years and 200000 miles later, still as fast and fun to drive as day one. Still has original clutch. Getting 22 to 24 mpg highway at 75 mph. Oil change every 5k miles. Black paint showing its age as well as some bumps and rattles. Replaced ignition packs and 3 oxygen sensors 2.5 years ago. Exaust pipe hangers rusted at 180K so put on new pipes myself. One axle shaft at 192K(boot failure) Normal maintenence, brakes, plugs I have done myself. The car not good in snow with all season radials. If you live in snow area, invest in 4 snow tires. What a difference. This is the best car I've owned.
Easy to work on. Error codes can be extracted easily using on board diagnostics. The best Maxima shape and a drivers car- not alot of electronic gadgets to have problems with. I'm concerned about replacing this car as the new Maximas have too many electronic "goodies" to go wrong
None. I've gotten 200,000 miles of fun to prove it.
