Fun money pit

2000 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan
Bought the car in 10/2003 with 28000 miles on it, coming off a fleet lease. Now has 73000 miles. Wife's car - she enjoys the car, good visibility for short petite person. Grown kids refer to it as the green goblin. It's a nice solid, if overpowered car. Expensive repairs over the long haul (e.g. MAF, coils, muffler, gas vent canister, ball joint,drive shaft boots). No go in snow-overpowered, skidish.
Fun to drive. Peppy to the extreme. GLE nicely appointed. Enjoy the sound system.
Reliability not what I expect. Regret selling a 95 Avalon w/ 135000 miles just routine maintenance-no big ticket repairs there. Unhappy about repairs.
