Great Motor Wrapped in Crappy Exterior
By vq35de1 on
2002 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I didn't buy this car out of love for Nissan or the Maxma, I just wanted a big sedan with creature comforts for not much money.
This fulfilled that need.
Granted, the car IS ten years old now but in the two years that I've owned it I've gone through 4 rear calipers, a new radiator, an O2 sensor, trailing arm bushings, and much, much more - I would say I've spent over $4,000 in repairs thus far.
The other thing is this fantastic motor (not sarcasm)0 uses oil and gets piss poor MPG in any kind of mixed driving.
Comfort and convenience items, the VQ engine.
Rear caliper design DOES NOT WORK, need new design if it's going to last.
