1997 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan


Bought as lease return with 29K-now has 94K. Great window visibility over the Camry and is a big reason we got it. Plenty of power. Drives very well and holds the road. Replaced muffler at 59K & 74K, starter at 61K & 88K, otherwise regular maintenance-fluid changes at regular intervals-have kept this car relatively free of costly repairs. Gas mileage city is 21-24 and hwy 26-30 based on records of every fillup since we bought it. Replaced original tires at 49K and put on Michelin xOne and have 45K on them-they need replacing in another 5-10K. All accessories work well other than antenna. A good solid performer.

Best Features

This car is a rocket-hit the gas and standby for lift off!! Factory remote rolls the front windows down on hot days as you walk to the car.

Worst Features

Hood struts replaced by dealer and failed again. Power antenna works but grinds. AC adequate for Texas heat but could be better-the car is purple maybe thats causes this problem.
