2001 Nissan Maxima SE
By J. Mattern on


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


Bought SE model, loaded, new in '01. Check engine light and o2 sensors a continuous problem for last 8 years. Dealers stick it to you each time attempted to fix these issues. Finally gave up years ago and just live with. Car now has 200K miles and continue to drive as winter vehicle, but must say the engine has been very solid. Bought a 15" Blizzak tire/wheel package (all four wheels) to replace the 17" Potenzas for winter driving and this car rolls through the bad winters of Upstate New York like 4 wheel drive! Would likely not buy another Nissan vehicle as the frequent warning lights on the dash are just a pain.

I have the 2001 SE model too.....I had mine for about three months...my engine light is on too so I just lived with it. Mine has 172K miles on it....I've been reading that I need to use premium gas in it even though regular works fine in it. Overall, I love this car and it hasn't really given me any problems.
