I have mixed feelings about this car.
By gelo7 on


1999 Nissan Maxima SE Limited 4dr Sedan


I had put 17,000 miles on this car,it
has 67,000 miles on it so far.
1)Nissan Ignition Immobilizer system
failed(car would not start)($ 140)
2)Fake interior wood trim started to
deteriorate due to ultraviolet
radiation from the Sun($ 235 online).
3)Rough idle,I will probably have to
replace ALL the six fuel injectors
which cost about $800.
My parents own a '99 Suzuki Esteem and
a '99 Honda Accord EX V6 for more than
two years and NEVER had a single
problem with them,that's what I call
reliability.(The Honda Accord needs no
major maintenance until 100,000 miles).

Best Features

Perforated good quality leather seats,nice spoiler,smooth V6 engine,decent power,little road noise (Not as quiet as a Camry or a Lexus though).

Worst Features

Reliability,Bose sound system is not worth it,ABS brakes should be included in a $30,000 car,better engine compartment design,real wood trim,awkward rear style,better handling,better factory paint job quality.
