Love My Maxima!

1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


Bought my fully-equipped 97 Maxima SE
with 7-8 miles on it in May of 97.
Have had it for almost 5 years now and
the only problem I've had is a failed
alternator at around 50,000. The
Maxima is a smooth and fun car to
drive, with pretty good handling and
acceleration. The cabin is
ergonomically designed, comfortable,
and roomy, altough it could be better
insulated from road noise. Nissan
could improve the Maxima's gas
mileage. I don't seem to get good gas
mileage. Maybe it's because I enjoy
driving the car and pushing it to its
limit so much.

Best Features

Fun to drive, adequate acceleration, very smooth ride, good road feel, interior and exterior design.

Worst Features

Additional horsepower, more precise steering, xenon headlights, more well insulated cabin, and better gas mileage.
