extremely happy we purchased the car.
Super large back seat area with seats
Exterior styling. Fabulous
More Lighted controls (stering

2004 Nissan Maxima Sedan 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
The vehicle is difficult to maneuver in
tight place and narrow driveways due to
the 18" wheels.
Visibility over the hood is nonexistant
(I'm 6'1") and it is next to impossible
to determine by visual cues just how
close one is to a forward object.
Outside mirrows obstruct driver's view
of curbs by blocking out about 50
degrees to the left and right of the
The adjustment control for the outside
mirrows is poorly located and not well
designed and is hidden by the steering
Finally, the local gas milege is not
very good. I get about 16.5 MPG in
local driving. The EPA of 20 MPG on
MSRP is unrealistic.
