Best car I've ever owned
By DaveCh on


1997 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


In seven years and 99,000 miles I never
had any problems. I bought the car new
and would have drove it into the ground
if it hadn't been destroyed in a flood.
This car had much better quality than
any of the Big Three American cars I've
owned. At 99,000 it still didn't need a
brake job. The engine is a ten best
engine and always had plenty of power
especially with the manual which never
required any work. Would highly
recommmend to someone for the quality
and performance and I'm looking for a
another 97 Maxima. My wife drives a
2003 Maxima.

Best Features

Smooth quiet powerful engine.

Worst Features

Sixth gear on the manual transmission but they've done that on the newer Maximas
