1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


I bought this car when it was 6 years old with 107K miles. I kept it for 5 years, putting another almost 70K miles on it. Besides regular maintenance, I did have to replace a few parts. All the maintenance and repairs averaged out to less than $1,000 per year. Not exceptional, but pretty good.

Best Features

Most of the time, I felt I could rely on this car.

Worst Features

This car is pretty good already, but certain components did break or need replacement sooner than my Toyota. To get to the next level, quality control for these components need to go up another notch.
