Not Quite a Performance Sedan
By DavidHB,CA on
Vehicle
2001 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Review
Mileage remains 24mpg consistantly. Stock Toyo tires changed at 60000. They were spongy, a lot of slip angle, lot of understeer, and not good for aggressive turning. Brake disks are warped. Pulsing during stops. Handling is a disappointment. Stock shocks are terrible. Too soft in front. Rear shocks bottomed out at 25000 on small bumps. Body roll in turns is unacceptable. No sway bar in the rear? What we they thinking at Nissan! Blind spots: All pillars are too wide and exterior mirrors are too small.
Favorite Features
Engine is smooth. Decent acceleration. Potent handling possible but only with aftermarket replacements and add-ons. AC is nice - wish I had auto temp control. Sound system is good.
Suggested Improvements
Better shocks and brakes. Better sway bar in front. A sway bar in rear. Non-squeeky qasket on windows. Narrower pillars. Bigger exterior mirrors - only needs about 3 more square inches. Exterior lamp failure light on dash. Better false pedal.
