1996 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


I have had this car for 8 years now. I
live in New England and the winters can
be pretty hard. The Max does a good job
on heavy snow thanks to a powerful
engine and effortless shifting. Wide
field of view through the windshield.
NE weather and roads can be hard on the
wipers (need to be replaced once a
year) and paint. Some exhaust
components under the car became rusted
and had to be replaced in 2002 ($150 at
Midas). Using rust inhibitor at the
local car wash now and then should
prevent this from happening. Windows
and Moonroof still function well.
Factory installed Bose audio still
sounds terrific. Climate control system
continues to be effective.

Best Features

- Quietness - Excellent acceleration and good passing power (I drive a manual) - Good handling - Brakes are fantastic! Great feedback!! - Dashboard ergonomics (large, easy to reach buttons)

Worst Features

Exterior painting (spots easily). Wiper design (noisy). Require tire pressure monitor and compass as standard features.
