2001 Nissan Maxima SE 20th Anniversary 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
What a blast to drivel. The only things that I would change would be the front-wheel drive (too much torque steer) and a more powerful sub for the somewhat weak BOSE system. I've had no mechanical problems - only routine servicing and a flat. But, my front driver's seat is splitting in a few places. The car's got a big backside, so high speed road handling is not a stable as I'd like. But, it IS a sedan. And, a big one at that. U-turns aren't always made either. But, I got the 20th Anniversary edition, and I love the subtle fascia and body kit extras that come with it. I just wish there was more of a difference between it and the normal SE edition.
Gas mileage: even when I use cruise control at 65mph, I can barely get 30 mpg. I usually get about 22 mpg overall driving. All-wheel drive. Too much power for front wheel drive vehicle. I wonder what the 260 and 265 horsepower Maximas drive like. I only have 227 hp.
