2001 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Excellent reliability so far. Car has 55K miles. Left front tie rod has worn and required replacement. Otherwise, no other mechanical issues.


Best Features

Engine and overall performance. Exterior styling. Interior quality and materials (with just a couple exceptions listed below).


Worst Features

Materials quality of the center arm rest (hinge is rather flimsy). Materials quality of the arm rests on the doors (flimsy cushioning has broken down and indented where ones elbow rests). The rear suspension is too stiff (it uses a fixed rear axle instead of independent suspension for each wheel).

2001 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Folks, this car drives like a starship. Imagine youself in space manuevering a craft, and thats what driving this Maxima is like. The car has saved my life countless times due to its flexibility and quick response on the road. In essence, the car becomes part of you, it was designed to follow your every command.


Best Features

The stearing, the torque and the fact the the car is wide, giving more control of the road.


Worst Features

The design of the rear of the vehicle could be better looking.

2001 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I originally purchased the car because I liked the style and supposed reputation of Nissan. My car had only 19000 miles and looked in mint condition. It was an off leased vehicle from a Nissan employee, at least that is what I was told. It was purchased from a Nissan dealer thinking they would stand behind their own product. As soon as I got it home, it started smoking white exhaust.Without going into all the boring details I finally got a new short block from the dealer, but not without threatening to sue them. Neither my dealer nor Nissan treated me with any respect and will never purchase another Nissan product, especially from Ft Wayne Nissan. Will go back to a reliable brand Toyota.


Best Features

Design and fun to drive. Great sound system. 17 inch wheels


Worst Features

Full sized spare and better insurance rating

2001 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For my first car, I was looking for something reliable, powerful, safe, reasonably priced, and fun to drive. I decided to go with the Nissan Maxima and I have been very pleased with the car over the last couple of months. The car is built very well and is nicely appointed for a 12-17,000 used vehicle. Another thing I like about this car is the body style that sticks to the shape that is very attractive to the eye. Inside the controls are well laid out, and the BOSE system performs quite well. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a well-priced, reliable, and sporty choice for a long term vehicle. I have read many reviews and the car holds up to its rating.


Best Features

very roomy nicely appointed ample power nice stereo excellent body style


Worst Features

-ventilated and slightly more comfortable seats. -lower road noise -fix boomy bass speaker -little more attention to trim detail

2001 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

this car is the sickest car ive ever driven it plus i added a cold air intake which really makes the car pull off the line as if it needed more power steering and cornering is excellent driving a 2000 accord ex v6 gold (hayat) and i have to say the maxima outperforms it.


Worst Features

gas mileage though i slam on the gas when me and my boy race his altima and my maxima maybe i should stop lol
