1996 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan


Wife bought it in 03 at 90,000 miles, up to 166,980 now. Has driven to NY, VA, and ky twice a year the past 7 yrs. Replaced a starter, 2 batteries & a c. V shaft all my self. The automatic pulls ridiculously well, oversteer is more pronounced if you don't replace the shocks. Brother in law rear ended an 88 olds (steel bumper) & drove it home. Post-repair ($3600), no mechanical issues what so ever. The 6 Bose speakers have outlasted the cd/tape deck. Grease the door joints, or they'll squeak. 4 disc brakes stop at will, & mid-grade gas=mileage+passing power. The alloy wheels stopped a Subaru that pulled out on me, no alignment issues. Paid 8800 in 03, an it was worth every Penny; an awesome car

Best Features

Power, Bose audio, brakes, handling, roomy, trunk space, easy maintenance, 140mph top end, smooth ride, color, drivetrain, the "I thought it was newer than that" comment, and the "oh crap it's quick" remark. You need more?! Overdrive disable!!=instant red- light torque! (the groceries are hanging on_

Worst Features

stiffer suspension, replaceable e- brake cover(not sewn in), cheaper 0-2 sensors(both of 'em), navigation!
