Bought my Maxima in 2011 with 106000 car runs great and fast when using premium fuel.
Mine has needed strus since the day I bought it. I have put 27K on it and i'm putting KYB strus on. My mechanic said the monroe struts are too weak for a cra of this performance level.
Hard to believe my car burns 2 qts every 1k miles.
With that said this car runs strong will fry the tires in first and second gear. I have replaced the factory stereo (that was junk)
The interior is roomy and trunk
I love the Zeon headlights most cars from 2002 don not have these in this price range I have replaced the radiator because the plastic tank developed a pin hole Still have original clutch
6 speed manual
I hope Nissan has addressed the oil consumption because they still use this engine in a lot of vehicles
