Long Term Relationship
By Original Owner on
2001 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Bought new and now have 185,000 miles. A great car to own that has never left us stranded. Other than needing front rotors every 20k miles, it is a very low maintenance car. A few of the dash lights work when they want to and the check engine light stays on from time to time. Dealer says no car throws a check engine code more frequently than this generation of Maxima but not to worry about it. Interior has held up amazing despite my now 7 year old. Rust is starting around the rear wheel wells so we are shopping for a new car. Prefer to stick with Nissan since this car has been so much better than my BMW's.
Reliable as a hammer.
Bigger brakes might have meant fewer replacements.
