2003 Nissan Maxima Sedan GLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car!

It's great fun to drive, very
comfortable. Looks fantastic in Sheer
Silver!! More than one person thought
it was a Mercedes, including a friend
who has one.

It's a blast smoking away those hoity
toity Benz and Beemer suckers.

Had a 99 Maxima, 03 is totally
different car.


Best Features

The engine. 6 CD in the dash. Comfy seats. Eats up the miles like an asphalt shark. Drove from Boston to Orlando; trip computer averaged 30.1 MPG and 58.6 MPH. Quiet, fast, luxurious, oh and a great value.


Worst Features

Needs lighted controls on steering wheel. Switch the order of the auto lighting system. Put 'auto' on after parking light detent. 'Memory' seat has trouble remembering the seatback angle. Also passenger power window unit broke after one week.

Review

I peeled the cheap lloking MAXIMA ans
3.5 SE chrome stickers off and added a
billet grille.... It now looks great.

Will add wood dash kit and poly
suspension bushings for stiffer
cornering.


Best Features

Blowing by BMW owners with a shcked look on their face.


Worst Features

Get rid of that grille...

2003 Nissan Maxima Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car is awesome. It truly kicks
butt. This car is FAST and handles
like an exotic sports car. You take
off and barely touched the gas pedal.
Its comfortable and the engine is sooo
smooth. This car is like having a
Lexus ES 300 w/out paying for an ES
300. Love the HID Xenons and the gated
auto shifter.


Best Features

255 HP 3.5L V6 VQ Engine - need I say more?


Worst Features

Better tires for a great car.

Review

This is my third XLE, and I just
learned that the 2003 headlight were
mounted or designed to be easily taken.

I learned this after it happened to me.
I have 4,000 miles on the car. It is at
the car dealer being repaired. There is
over 3,200 worth of damage, I am
hesitate to take it when it is finished.

As, the police told me, they know where
you live and will be back,this car is
always being hit on. The lights just
pop out.

I check with the dealer who confirmed
this, Nisson has not recalled them or
come up with a anti theft devise. I
feel like a sitting duck.
If anyone knows how to avoid having the
lights taken, please tell me.

Thank You,
Sharon

The way it handles the road. It is a pleasure to drive.


Worst Features

Do something about the lights. Develope a way that they cannot be taken so easily.
