2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The car was bought brand new and I have not had many problems with it, the struts had to be replaced once but that was under warranty so there was no problem there. Other than that the car runs perfect except for a rattling type noise that I think might be the timing chain but that's only heard at really low speeds when the engine is straining to go up a hill, I had it looked at and replaced but it makes the same noise. The car has around 61k on it and runs like its brand new. It is very very fast and really quick, it handles exceptionally well and it drives like a sports car I absolutely love it and have fun every time I drive it. I would recommend this car to anyone. P. S get the nismo intake.
the engine, the BOSE stereo
The only thing that I don't like about this car is that its fwd I really wish Nissan would make available an awd model or make the car rwd it would be more of a "4 door sports car" as Nissan calls it.
