2002 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Review
This has been probably the best all-around car we have ever owned from the standpoint of durability/reliability. This is the best engine in any car we've ever owned. Smooth as silk, lots of torque, but with great mileage. We can get near 30 mpg highway if we use cruise and stay at 70mph or under. Hard to believe it's a V6. Wind noise and ride quality are a little dated, but overall this is a better car than the current Maxima which is too soft and a big disappointment.
Favorite Features
Engine. Smooth, quiet, lots of torque and power, very good mileage for a V6. This has got to be the world benchmark for mass production V6 engines.
Suggested Improvements
Ride quality and chassis tightness show the age of the original design. The Altima tub was much tighter and crisper. The new Maxima though, is actually worse (too soft). The new Altima is the better choice when it comes time to replace your '02 Maxima.
