Best 4-Door Sedan in 1993

1993 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


For a combination of function, form, performance, fuel efficiency, and value there was not a better sedan than the 3rd generation Nissan Maxima. This car is much more fun to drive than my '03 Maxima, and better on gas too I might add. Has never left me stranded, very easy and accessible to work on. The VE30DE engine was prone to VTC failure which is common on '92 - '94 DOHC motors. Was more a noise problem than anything else. But once repaired never gave me any other problems. At a 216K miles it is time to let her go as I need a Mini Van. I wish Nissan was still making this model, I would trade my 5th gen Maxima for it in a heartbeat!

Best Features

Stick shift, engine growl on acceleration, handling. Body style and lines of the car. V6 that get HWY MPG of 28 still at 200K+

Worst Features

Quieter power locks, manufacture recall on VE30DE VTC sprockets. Better factory stereos.
