I want my 95 back
By Sam on


1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


I totaled a 1995 Maxima GLE, so I decided to step up to a 97 SE. Over the last 6 months I have had over $1500 in repairs, granted it has never left me stranded, but that is what I spent on my 95 over the course of 1.5 years and it had 70,000 more miles on it. Also since my 95 was much less expensive, plenty of money was left over for aftermarket performance parts. Do yourself a favor and find a higher mileage that has had all the common problems fixed and use the money saved to increase performance.

Best Features

Bose Sound quality and solid road feel Note: bose radio doesn't like FM transponders for iPods or XM radio

Knock Sensor postion (its under the intake manifold = $$$ to replace) Drive axle failure Crankshaft postion sensors failure Plastic all over the dash (find one with wood grain) No lateral support, but comfortable leather seats.
