It's a Nissan!

2000 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan


Bought in 2005, with 70,000 miles, as a good compromise between power and economy. Overall, have been dissatisfied with the experience. I have replaced 2 sets of brakes, and they have begun to make noise again. Suspension has aged poorly, especially in rear, transmission slips (and is more to fix than the car is worth to me). I have put a lot of highway miles on the car (60,000), and it has not taken them well. Fortunately, I installed an expensive aftermarket stereo, which drowns out most of the road, wind, and mechanical noises the car makes. Requires premium fuel for not-so-snappy performance. I have also had to replace coils, radiator, and thermostat. Engineering is mediocre at best.

Best Features

Exterior styling is nice, alloy wheels look decent.

Worst Features

Coils should not sequentially fail, chintzy armrest compartment, premium fuel is a waste, transmission that will hold up under a 220 horsepower load, better acceleration, handling, braking and reliability.
