Review of the 2001 Nissan Maxima

  • The athlete of family sedans.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Silky and powerful V6 engine, sports car moves, room for the whole family.

  • Cons

    Odd styling details, high price, rough ride quality with SE suspension.

  • What's New for 2001

    A 20th Anniversary edition includes the 227-horsepower version of the standard 3.0-liter V6 from the Infiniti I30, as well as goodies like bronze-lensed headlight covers, a body kit, ersatz carbon-fiber interior trim, drilled metal pedals and a number of features normally optional on the SE. This special model also gets an exclusive color: Majestic Blue. A new Meridian package is optional on all Maximas, bundling side-impact airbags and a low washer fluid indicator with heated front seats and side mirrors, as well as special trunk lid trim. Adding optional traction control to the SE or GLE results in a Z Edition Maxima, for some zany reason.

Alternator

Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Maxima SE 20th Anniversary 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned my car for 5 yrs. Have had 4 alternators put in. Was left stranded again. Shop says nothing wrong with alternator or battery. Must be a short some where.




Love the 20th anniversary edition

Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Maxima SE 20th Anniversary 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Awesome car, but i bought it from a bad previous owner who put a tremendous amount of miles on it in the year before i bought it. It needed new rotors, brake pads, belts, & MAF. Eventually it needed 2 o2 sensors, but they were due anyway and are cheap. If you get drilled & slotted rotors, you should have no problems with warping.




Don't do it

Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Maxima SE 20th Anniversary 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased my Maxima with 33k miles in 2004. Ran great and very reliable until around 2008. The maxima began to barrage me with check engine lights, needed an 02 sensor, brakes, MAF problems, muffler holes, and the list goes on. The car now has 124k miles and it is time to move on. As soon as I get one thing fixed, another thing goes down and I can't keep up with it. The car is very fun to own and I love the look and power of it but I can't keep up with the maintenance. According to the internet, 2001 Maximas are prone to every problem you can think of! Don't buy one!
