Good but doesn't quite make it
By DHG on


1998 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan


The good stuff; powerful engine, good
automatic, lots of luxo type features
for just slightly an econobox price.

Now the real stuff; problems with
front end since day one. Selling
dealer replaced front struts at
approx. 25k, also needed new tires at
same time. Didn't fix the problem.
Different dealer replaced engine
mounts at 30k, better but still rough
and bumpy. Just put third set of
struts on from private mechanic. Needs
stableizer bushings.

Can't believe Nissan didn't make a
valet type lock/key system for their
flagship car, and what about having to
manually turn off headlights? What is
the cost difference between a buzzer
and a time delay switch?

Best Features

Engine; its a fast car. Bose CD Changer; Awsome. Heated front seats, side airbags, remote window lowerer, trunk pass through. Real sporty feel!

Worst Features

Seats get hard after a long drive, definately need better padding and support. Better factory trained machanics & trouble shooting diagnostics. Better quality struts.
