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


Review

Good value for someone wanting a
sportier ride with some luxury. The V6
is torquey and feels like a small V8.
The brakes and steering are also good.
If you are a spirited driver, the
suspension will leave you disappointed.
The body rolls heavily and the
springs/struts are are tuned for
comfort rather than performance. The
6speed gears are spaced well but the
throw seems extra long and the feel is
very notchy - like working a big screw
driver in bowl full of marbles! Nissan
could take some lessons from Honda.
Dispite the shortcomings, the V6 does
make up for them and is perhaps the
best sport sedan available for under
$28K.


Best Features

Engine, engine, engine!


Worst Features

Tighter suspension; smoother, short throw stick shift; better turning radius (unusually wide radius!)

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


Review

Is this a sedan or not? It feels faster
than a sports car, except their are 3
passengers in the back. The Maxima goes
0-60 in 6.3 seconds. Thats fast. It is
fun to drive. Nice interior, and oh did
I mention it was fast. Cars pull up
next to the car and have no idea they
can get smoked by a family sedan. This
max will make the BMW 325 look silly!!!


Best Features

6 spped manual tranny w/ cool reverse feature. 3.5 Litre monster engine Handeling acceleration oh, and acceleration.


Worst Features

Four Wheel drive version should be introduced.

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


Review

Nice car, except for 3 things that I
dont like about it. Back seats are not
good for tall people, suspension is
Rough on the SE (you feel every bump),
making a U-Turn is hard, same with
parking spots. Also if you hit the gas
and there is bumps on the road you
better hold onto the wheel cause it
locks up and and jerks really hard.


Best Features

255 Horse Power, 3.5 liter engine, Xenon lights, Manuverable, roomy in the front and its FASSST.


Worst Features

Nothing really.

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


Review

i really have to think hard to complain
about anything in regards to
performance.
the engine is perfect and the interior
design is perfect. it is true that the
ride of the se model is stiff on rough
roads, but i like the handling of the
sport package. i tried all the entry
level luxury sedans, but this car gives
you all the quality of those models for
a lot less money. mine is loaded with
the bose sound system, leather seats
and sunroof. everyone who rides with me
comments on how smooth the ride is, how
great the stereo sounds and they love
the acceleration you get when you punch
it.


Best Features

silky smooth engine and transmission with a lot of zip. good sound system, quiet ride, comfortable seats. logical controls. roomy back seat.


Worst Features

would like to see even more horsepower, maybe around 300 or so. back seat cup holders are needed.

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


Review

My '02 Maxima is the best car I've
owned. The 255 hp engine's performance
is superb and runs great on regular.
The heated seats and steering wheel
make early morning winter drives
bearable. I plan to keep it until
200,000 miles.


Best Features

Moon roof, 17" wheels, leather, power all, stereo make this car fun to own.


Worst Features

Shorten the turning radius. Lights for the steering wheel radio & cruise buttons
