Review

No complaints except for the typical radio problems. Other then that I love this car, I have owned a few Nissan cars and trucks and this is bye far the best. Got my first Maxima 03 SE with 174,000 and its still like a new car. Love it. And not to mention only paid $1,800. Best deal ever.

Review

I've always liked the 5th gen Maxima.
I finally had the chance to get one from California.
Purchased August 2014 with 50,000 original miles from an elderly couple that took real good care of it.
I live in Colorado and book the trip to Dublin CA.
Drove the car back and got 32mpg, she did great!
One issue the radio had to be replaced and the power coming from the engine...WOW! So far I've added 12,000 miles driving for work out of state and I'm happy I bought the car. This car was immaculate inside and out.


Best Features

horsepower, moon roof(first time having one), trunk space is huge!


Worst Features

Review

Owned for about 30,000 miles, Car had 120,000 and when I wrecked it was at 150,000. If you by chance come accross one of these amazing cars I would most certainly recommend it. I've raced people in them and have very often won. It is very fast and very reliable. I recently rear ended someone in it and becuase the air bag deployed it was totalled out. I'm sad and devastated. This car is the kind of car that will last forever. The only thing I never liked was the braking could have been better but I drove it fast so what do you expect...
Loved it Loved it Loved it!!!!!!


Best Features

Torque, Horsepower, Enterior, Exterior, EVERYTHING!!!!

Car needs no improvements.

Review

This is my second max, first one still have 94 with 264,000 km and engine/trans tops.
Only have 62,000 km on 03 and now first major repair, brakes all around.

Got this as last Japanese made one and was afraid of quality control with 04 on.
I may be wrong with the 04's on.

This car takes off like a scared cat-make sure you are hanging on tight.

I like the 94 more as it seems more roomer inside and with self adjusting shocks, real nice.
However, very poor head lights-moved up to stronger ones to help.
03 lights, what an improvement over the 94.


Best Features

Looks are real nice and with the silver paint job, sun and clouds give it different looks. Like all the controls on the steering wheel-fingertips. On the streets found so easy to go over limit and likewise on the highways. Passing with car is a pleasure-before you know, you are way over 80 approaching 90. Did anyone take it all the way up to the end of the speedometer. Like the dimming rear mirror at night.
