By It just won't die! on


1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


I bought my Max with 42k miles in 2001 off a lease from a single previous owner. Almost 10 yr later it is still going strong with 234k miles on it! Yes it has issues with the sunroof leaking, and things that just go wrong with a car with its age but overall I am in awe at how good the engine still is. I bought this after a short stint with a 1989 maxima (my first car) which I loved and have no regrets. Every time I go looking at a newer ride I just cant justify the payments and contently crank up my trusty maxima and go about my business. This thing moved with me from Atl to TX (2 trips back to ATL and back) been to FL, DC, AL, MS, NC, SC and the states in between with no issues!

Best Features

Quick to get up and go, smooth but sporty ride and the fact that it just simply refuses to die. In fact I think I'm going to redo the leather seats.

Worst Features

Learn how to die Maxine! In all honesty my windshield cracks too easily. I'm on my 3rd. This thing should have come with a built-in police radar/laser jammer lol.
