1996 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


Bought my 96' GXE in the winter of 05' for $6,200 (tax, title, 30-day warranty included) with only 58,000 miles on it. Build quality for interior is amazing. Although it was well mantained, car still seemed to be brand new. The engine is seamless but it takes premium (93 grade) fuel, even with that, gas miles are respectable (22-27MPG). Car now has 65,000 miles and I have only done preventive matanence (changed oil, plugs, filters...). Car was a steal for the drivetrain alone, but is cheap luxury for a college student. GXE model came with full power, 12 disc changer, power drivers seat, keyless remote, I bought and put 17 inch Maxima SE rims for the (00-03) model. Great car!!!

Best Features

ENGINE, ENGINE, VQ engine is amazing, only rated at 190 HP, but is seamless and powerful. Takes premium fuel, but all aluminum engine is great base to add power to.

Worst Features

Brakes, 4 wheel std. discs. Better cupholders and standard alloy wheels...all of which i believe have been addressed with new maximas....still a wonderfully great car
