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


Review

I have to admit that I am pleased with
the Maxima overall; although I would
have waited for the 2004 model though.
I have had the car for about 8 months
and it has been vandalized three times!!
If you live in the Northeast, don't buy
this car! It is in your best interest
to buy the 2004 model or buy something
else. The research was not available
when I bought this car and I am sorry I
bought it. When you pay up to $3500 for
a pair of headlights you get a little
bitter. It is a beautiful car but the
headache is not worth it.


Best Features

The ride and the sound system


Worst Features

The headlights should be more secure; especially since it only takes crooks 30 seconds to steal them!!!!!!

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


Review

Gorgeous car! Wickedly powerful,
especially above 3000 rpm. Quiet,
solid, well-handling; sized right for
me.


Best Features

3.5L V6 Engine, transmission, leather interior ( but it is HOT), sun roof, wheels on GLE look nicer than other models. Gas mileage is fantastic: 23-24 in city driving; 32-34.5 on the highway!


Worst Features

Maybe the HVAC controls could be a little simpler. And I hope my headlight assemblies don't get ripped off!

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


Review

Asked dealer not to give me firestone
or bridgstone tires. it turned out
that all my bridgstone tires were
replaced by goodyear eagles. Car rides
harder than any new car I have ever
been in. It is extremely powerful but
has horrible gas mileage. seats are
comfortable. I have a bad back. Extras
are an expensive ripoff. 2000 nissan
maxima was a better car. these cars
need independent rear suspension.
Would I buy another maxima? not a
chance. far over-priced for what you
get.


Best Features

power,seats,headlights,


Worst Features

suspension,much better with rear wheel drive,less gimmicks for extras, more realistic price. car is not worth 25000-30000 altima ma is basically the same car. should have wood panelsfor this money.

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


Review

This is a super car. I have owned 4
Nissans and this is a fun car to drive.
I had a 280ZX and 240SX too. This car
is a better option than the Altima.
Friends with new cars, (Honda Accord,
Honda Pilot, etc.)love to ride in my
Maxima.


Best Features

Power and acceleration, headlights really light up the road ahead, memory seats, roomy inside and comfortable seats. Like the stereo - but slow to load all 6 CDs, side airbags add to safety, garage door opener in visor, stereo controls on steering wheel


Worst Features

Light up controls on steering wheel, Trip computer very inaccurate, make compass standard, telescope steering wheel, AC/heat vents for back, continuous fan speed, dual temp setting for front. rain noise on side windows - sounds like hail hitting it.
