I've had this Maxima for almost ten years and have replaced the MAF, an O2 sensor, front axle, and three out of six ignition coils. The coils are easy to replace on your own (especially coils 2, 4, and 6) Anything that's ever broken on it didn't leave me stranded on the road! Overall, this is the most reliable car I've ever owned. It's still quiet as a mouse and rides great. It still gets terrific gas mileage and I run it on 89 octane.
Quiet, smooth ride.
Nissan should repay all of the Maxima owners that have replaced the coils. They failed at an extremely high rate!
