1996 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


My first car and I love it. Bought it with 113,000 miles and no problems so far. Everything in the car is solid. When shifting, 1st gear has a distinctive lack in power, but after that, it pulls like crazy. Fuel economy isn't as good as I expected, but the performance makes up for it. One thing I wasn't expecting is using premium fuel. I tried regular for a while and I ended up getting worst fuel economy and performance. Now I always use premium.

Best Features

Torque, build quality, bullet-proof engine, sport suspension (SE).

Worst Features

Front seats need more bolstering, rear of car looks a bit plain, paint quality could be better, 1st gear needs more pull like other gears
