1998 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan


This car was purchased from my sister at 245k and it sat around for 6 months prior to that. In my mind I didn't expect to much out of it because of it was a foreign car (Chevy born and raised) but this car truly did surprise me. The handling was a little shifty but the power of the V6 held its own against a Mustang I must say. This is a solid, well built car with a great ride and excellent power. Even though it sad around for 6 months, once the cob webs were blown off, she shined like a diamond performance wise. The only problems I've faced is repair cost and what others have done to it.

Best Features

Love the power, the ride is very smooth and is easy to stand all day.

Worst Features

Easier repairs, changing the oil was hassle because of the plastic guarding around the engine. Also, if parts were a little cheaper, I think I'd have it made (i.e: 30 bucks for the sway bar linkage)
