1998 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


Bought mine from 1st owner with 180K miles for $1700. Replaced the struts within 3 months and have only put brakes and an $85 part that controls trans shifting since then ( now have 215K). This car and drivetrain is absolutely bulletproof! (just change the oil using synthetic oil). If trans starts shifting hard it IS NOT the trans going bad, but a cheap little part just behind the battery that ANYONE can replace themselves (talk to dealer as they keep them in stock since they fail frequently on the 3.0 24V engine). Rides a little stiff but handles like a vette with GOOD Tires on it... QUICK as he%$, and I don't even drive that fast....

Best Features

RELIABILITY and engine performance... Can only get 26 MPG on highway no matter how it is driven (under 75 mph. YOU WILL LOVE THIS CAR.. 100K Miles is just broken in if it was maintained.... Totally optimistic I will get 300K miles out of it..... Burn Premium gas as directed and U will LOVE this car

Worst Features

None other than MPG, but then again it has such great performance I will trade one for the other any day....
