Bought new. Bequeathed to me by wife
last 3 years after return of my 325i to
dealer. No cache/status but, could not
be happier. Drives, handles, feels like
an expensive car; funny, it list for
over 27K new in 1994. Add exceptional
reliability and adequate space for USA
travel w/five comfortably, you have a
sleeper. Not rated high by popular
evaluation systems, BUT in the real
world, simply follow THE BOOK with
regard to maintenance, and this old
tried and true Maxima engine and drive
train will give you at least 250k of
pleasant memories and reasonable long-
term ownership costs.
Comfortable Leather chairs and rear
bench; 2nd rows Captain's Buckets;
plenty of usable space; excellent
emergency handling, ABS, heavy duty
suspension; good sound system; great
HVAC front and back; good highway MPG
with cruise/AC on at steady 80.
