Only one coil pack, an O2 sensor, muffler and a starter is all I have ever replaced in 10 years. It's been a great car. I have to get rid of it because I am driving 100+ per day and need ultimate reliability. I have the 5- speed and get 30.25 MPG doing 65 MPH highway driving. Small rust spot on right-side of truck and driver-side wheel well. Brakes lasted me 75K miles and I'm still on the original rotors.
Performance, handling, quality interior.
Never have used the dealerships for repairs. If Nissan had offered a manual in the new Maxima, I would have considered purchase. But it is no longer the 4-DR sports car.
