2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Fun to drive, but no way this car can
justify sticker price of $28.000.
Poor quality inside the car. Plastic
moldings on the seat are pealing off.
Ugly strip of carpet-like material runs
on the dashboard. Poor rear window
visibility. Even top of the line SL has
cheap looking plastics (wood
imitation). Outside - front grill is
terrible. Made of cheap shiny pieces
of plastic. The whole thing moves to
the touch of hand. Nissan tried to
separate Maxima from Altima and they
only succeeded in placing a higher
price sticker, since the only good
thing that this car has (engine) is
also available in Altima 3.5, which
costs thousands $ less and looks
I am also not sure if I like the
design. Looks like a tank from some
angles. Take this car and start
