1994 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had this car for just about 4
years now and never had a problem with
it. I bought it used and the only
thing I had to do was have the cadilic
converter cleaned out because I needed
and early tuneup. I got the tuneup and
have never had the problem again. This
car has been the best that I have
owned. I had the chance to trade it in
and wouldn't. I have come to rely on
it as I know it will take me where ever
I need it too. Taking it on trips has
been a very comfortable experience. We
bought a 2002 Olds Alero and my husband
has taken my Maxima, (which won't be
for long), he loves the car.


Best Features

It handles better than any vehicle I have owned. I love the seat belt, the comforts. The trunk has more than ample space.


Worst Features

Put the ashtray somewhere you can reach it. I don't have many suggested Improvements. The car in my opinion is the best car out there. You can't even rely on new cars this way. It has been an outstanding vehicle.

Review

The car has never given me a problem in
the 7 years I've been driving it. The
only thing that needed to be replaced
was the exhaust system (rust- $300).
The paint still shines like new, the
engine is quiet and smooth, mileage is
great, transmission still working
fine. I now drive about 500 miles a
week on trips and the car gives me no
reason to believe it won't make the
trip. Very happy with it.


Best Features

The car is 10 years old- I'm happy it starts every time I put the key in.

Review

I've had this car 4 months now and no
major problems on a ten year old car.
And with 206,000 That baby still hits
135mph easily. Just like everyone else
the window regulator had to be fixed
(drivers), and the transmission has its
days. Fun to drive, I go almost
everyday over my 00 Focus wagon which
of course is much slower.


Best Features

"power" trans button, handling at high speeds,still a challenge to those new V6 engines 135mph!


Worst Features

Nissan should check their V6 trans.Bose system not too much to brag about

Review

I purchased my '94 Maxima almost a
year and a half ago. It's got 94k on
it now and it is still a very powerful
car. Antenna didn't work when I
bought it...cost to fix $300. Other
than that no problems at all. It is
an awesome car and it is very
dependable. I would recommend
Maxima's to anyone. I will definitely
buy from Nissan again.


Best Features

The 3.0L V6 engine makes this car a force to contend with.


Worst Features

The cup holders are odd sizes and there aren't enough of them.

Review

After test driving the Maxima two years
ago, I realized it was the car for me.
Dark green with beige leather and every
option imaginable, with quality and
reliability to match, I'd recommend the
Maxima to everyone I know. It's got
great acceleration, handling, build
quality, and it's fun to drive. No
major repairs to note, other than
antenna and passenger-side power window.


Best Features

Interior quality and design. Leather holds up amazingly well (I did have the windows lightly tinted to protect it). V-6 engine makes it feel like a sports car, not a 4 door sedan.


Worst Features

It's kind of noisy at high speeds, and on long trips the driver-side seat is very uncomfortable. Fuel economy in the city also makes it expensive to keep as an around-town car, and automatic transmission acts up occasionally during heavy acceleration.
