1996 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan


A Ture sports sedan. Fly on the road. For those like a 4dr sedan but still want some fun to drive. Accelaration is word class, interior is luxury. A reliable car as well, I bought it used with 60K mile. Now it has almost 100K, and I have never need any major service.
This is my 2nd Maxima, my first one is a 94 GXE, which carries only 160hp. The 96 GLE is definte an upgrade.
I have also tested 2001 and 2002 Max. Feel like my 96 is not any slower than the 255hp 2002 and even faster than the 225hp 2001 model, probably because of the light weight. I will drive it till the wheel comes of or until I can affor a BMW 5 series as I feel no other car has better combination of sporty and luxury.

Best Features

Powerful Engine and accelaration. Sports and precise handling. Roomy and luxurious interior.

Worst Features

Get better cup holders. Believe or not, my first 94 GXE has no cup holder at all. Make the suspension absorb bumps better.
