I bought my Maxima SE new back in March 01. I like the car overall, but here is my experience so far: 1)Had to replace the front shocks at 40K 2)The exhaust pipe had to be replaced at 53K 3) Replaced original Potenza tires after 53K 4)New front brakes at 36K 5) New rear brakes at 52K. My experience with the service department at the dealership has been very good, they know what they're doing. I will go with a Honda or Acura for my next car.
Fun to drive, Roomy interior
Be able to put regular gas in instead of minimum of 91 octane, better shocks and struts, better brakes, no low profile tires, lower cost for parts and maintenance
