Excellent vehicle, i would highly recommend it. It was very reliable and had an amazing engine. Perform regular maintenance and this car will not let you down. Only draw back was the poor MPG and recommendation for premium fuel

We've owned our 2002 Maxima GLE since it was new.
It's been a bull: smooth, comfortable, reliable.
Next to nothing to fix - except the CD player - outside of normal maintenance. We still own it.
It still drives beautifully.

Love this car (model/year) - bought in Dallas with 84K and it runs great with 171k now.
Just recently I found that during heavy traffic it slips a little.
It sort of goes with oil but got that fix.
I don't know anything about buying transmissions but where do you start to figure the cost?
The Maxima receives updates this year that make it less of a family sedan and more of an entry-level luxury sport sedan. Headlining this year's upgrades is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces a stunning 255 horsepower. For maximum performance, sport-tuned SE models now combine this engine with a standard six-speed manual transmission. Other changes include revised exterior styling, additional feature content and an optional GPS navigation system.
