2002 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Yes it's beautiful, fast and rides great but do not buy this car if you live in North Jersy!! The Xenon headlights have been stolen from mine 3 times. As soon as I get it back from the body shop I'm trading it in for something with Halogens.

2002 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After test driving many of the more expensive 4-door sedans on the market, I knew that the Maxima was definitely my pick. Who wants to spend more money to look like an old man when you're 25? This car is very functional, sporty and fun to drive. Nissan's 3.5L 6cyl engine begs you to give it gas and the suspension does not mind hard cornering. The engine can withstand a serious amount of punishment and so can the transmission! SE suspensions are tuned to provide a busy, sportscar type of ride and you feel just that. It is so fun to embarrass VW's, Audi's, BMW's, Acura's & Mustangs without making one upgrade!

It is a great car. You have to love the VQ35DE. It's smooth, and if you squint, you can hear a V12!

2002 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I love this car, overall quality is a 10 easy. Has lots of power and just about every gadget you could need. NissanUsa needs to address the problem with paint chips though. 2 days and I have 20 paint chips down to the primer. My acura has 7 after 4 years in the same driving area. That is pretty ridiculous. Now I have to pay out of pocket to have the hood and bumper re- painted and then add a clear bra. If they could fix that then this would be the perfect car.


Best Features

Sunroof control, trip computer, auto- dimming mirror, power.


Worst Features

Paint job is horribly thin.
