1998 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


I wanted a powerful and sporty sedan
that didn't seem too "young" and
radically styled, that wasn't too
common (i.e., Accord or Camry), was
reliable, and that didn't look
cheap...at less than $12K. So I just
bought a loaded SE with 88000 miles,
and it worked out great. With some
detailing and wax, felt like I just
bought a new car; the styling and
features are still contemporary. The
190 hp engine is smooth--and is a nice
balance of power and fuel efficiency.
It cruises powerfully up hills and on
the freeway.

Best Features

Engine, styling, and bose stereo. Solidly built.

Worst Features

Car is bit loud on freeways. Feels underpowered when accelerating...but 2000 model has bumped-up horsepower. Marked drop in performance when using 89 octane gas...so use 92.
