Every day it's better

1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


This car is probably the best equation for a
car out there courteousy of the VQ power
plant. I found the clutch differnt (used to
eurpoean) but once you compensate for
that, it is a joy to drive. It really does
accelerate to 60 in around 7 seconds and
doesn't have any nasty surprises on dirt,
snow or mud. Best tyre combo: Michelin
Alpine (excellent with this chassis)
Suspension is easy to stiffen and if you are a
Mod nut you can go with the 267hp turbo
kit. Last note, My wife drives this car better
than I can and I had to teach her stick and I'll
be shooping for a new engine before a new
car with this one.

Best Features

Handling; Predictable, secure, no suprises

Worst Features

never saw a cup holder in my life before moving to the states, but I wouldn't design them the way Nissan have, good for toll change though.
