Not the car Nissan claims it to be
By jessefrank on
2003 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
If you are looking of a performance sedan I'd look elsewhere. Not bad, but the interior build quality steered me away after owning for 2.5 years. Also all that power isn't of any use if it can't get to the road. Despite my tire choices I still lost traction not only in the winter, but durning the summer with wet roads. Roads only have to be slightly wet to lose traction especaially on take-off. Car developed a harsh ride despite not handling all that well.
3.5L V6, roominess of interior, handeling compared to other american sedans in its class
Interior build quality severely lacking, weak paint, lack of handling for the harsh ride, swap the FWD for AWD or RWD, replace the 4 speed auto, better noise reduction
