1998 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


We bought it used at 11k miles, and it is now at around 168k miles. We had 2 Maxima before this one-a 78 and an 81. We have had outstanding reliability experience with all three. Ours is the SE model with heated leather seats (which my wife loves). The engine has plenty of power, and it gets fairly good mileage for the performance level. Our average has been about 25 MPG, and up to around 30 MPG on long summer trips. I do the routine preventative maintenance consistently, and we have had no reliability problems at all. Everything works as expected and nothing falls apart repeatedly like the domestic autos we owned in the gap between our 81 Maxima and the 98 we have now.

Best Features

Engine; Smooth, powerful, reliable, long lasting and economical. Overall high reliability! Comfortable seating with the heated leather power seats. Accurate cruise control. Factory quality commitment.

Worst Features

Would like a little more room in the trunk and less intrusion in the trunk of the trunk lid hinges.
