1996 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


I purchased my 1996 Maxima GXE used with about 18,000 miles on it. I now have approximately 188,500. Very few repairs. Those of you who are buying high octane are wasting your money. I have been using 87 or 88 octane for the 9+ years I have owned it, and it performs just fine. I have tried 91 octane and couldn't detect any difference. Using 88 octane several years ago, it went up to 127 mph on a long empty straight stretch of road in Wyoming, and still had more to give when I backed off the throttle.

Best Features

Performance and low maintenance. Still looks great at 10 years old.

Worst Features

Rear end doesn't look great, but it doesn't bother me.
