1998 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


The car has been reliable: small problems include battery replacement under
warranty and a front-end squeak that dealers have not been able to fix.

The rear suspension lands with a harsh thud when going over speed bumps
with both rear wheels. If only 1 wheel goes over the bump it's fine. The
engine is great!!! The clutch is getting close to replacement after 76000 hard
(not auto-journalist level of hard though) miles.

I love my car and have problems finding a potential replacement. I have
money to buy a more expensive car, but even then I can't find a car that is
as fast, fun, and reliable as my $18K Maxima.

Best Features

Engine. PPG Front Windshield (does not crack due to chips). Low price ($19,100 out the door).

Worst Features

Rear suspension. Better stock tires and raise speed governer above 112 MPH.
