2000 Nissan Maxima Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

Between 58,000 & 58,500 I had to replace all 6 ignition coils ($490), the Mass Airflow Sensor ($538), the Throttle Response Sensor ($393). The A/T also had to be replaced, under warranty. During the 58,500 miles the A/T was serviced twice and a external cooler installed in series with the factory cooler. I am a preventative maintenance junkie! The transmission failure should never of happened. Nissan is pure junk!! The A/T should of went al least 150,000 miles. The rebuilt replacement has only a 12/12 warranty. I will get rid of this junker before the current warranty runs out! I understand Nissan is now controlled by a French Co. That explains the poor reliability!

Performance


Suggested Improvements

Better power train reliability! The A/T took a dump at 58,500 miles.

2000 Nissan Maxima Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I have owned two Nissan Maximas, a 1990 and a 2000 SE. I purchased the 2000 SE in 10/2002. Unfortunately the 2000 model has been the problem child. First the coils went which cost $750 to fix. Then the altenator, I know these things happen wtih cars none are totally maintenance free, but after reading some of the reviews and seeing the coils mentioned over and over I wonder why they haven't been recalled yet. Incidentally the 1990 SE is still going strong with no major problems.


Favorite Features

Engine power and setero.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability. Admit there is a problem with the coils in the 2000 model and recall it.

Review

This has been an exceptional vehicle for my wife. She is very hard on her vehicles and this car has taken a beating for 72,000 miles and is still going strong. The only issues we have had with the car is the rear window switch broke and the oil pan screw stripped when it was screwed in incorrectly. All around this is a exceptional vehicle but it was a little pricey.


Favorite Features

Acceleration and very comfortable for a midsize vehicle. Great engine and good workmanship. A very tight and solid car.


Suggested Improvements

Bring the price tag down a little.

Review

I recently purchased a 2000 Nissan Maxima. I have no complaints. It handles nice and smooth. I have driven the vehicle cross-country and loved every minute. I would highly suggest purchasing a Maxima, any year.

Review

I bought this Maxima in 2002 and have put almost 40,000 miles on it. Its total miles are now 69,000. It is time for some break and rotor work, but I have had no major issues other then a faulty air intake temperature sensor and an airbag code which was $75 to reset. The airbag code was caused by me taking the seats out to install a new stereo. If you unbolt the front seats do not unhook the wiring harnesses.


Favorite Features

The engine, the 5spd manual. The interior design. The heated seats


Suggested Improvements

Why couldn't this car have come with a regular antenna or a more powerful rear window version. Since my stereo upgrade reception can be a pain at times. I plan to install a better one in the future.
