a good compromise

1999 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


Good compromises: it's spirited yet soft
and peppy yet docile. Backseat and
trunk more useable than some of its
competitors. Engine pulls hard and
sounds good throughout most of its range
although top end thrust is lacking.
Auto has a hard 1-2 shift when cold. I
found the steering wheel more
comfortable/responsive than others.
Interior looks great although there are
a couple of rattles/squeaks (easily
fixable, but still). Overall I'm
pleased and wouldn't be
considerably happier (for what I was
willing to spend) without two different
cars. It can either comfortably haul
around four people or I can play.

Best Features

steering feel. seat comfort and room. engine power (okay, we always want more, but it's sufficient). Easy to work on.

Worst Features

FTSB should have been standard. Poor OEM tires. Rotors tend to warp. Fit and finish of interior (dern A-pillars).
