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


Purchased new w/Infinity all-leather interior. 130K miles. I take good care of it. Still looks great w/a few minor paint touch-ups. Wonderful car for the S.W. and high-speed touring. Good power/weight ratio. 21 mpg city, 28 highway at 80+mph. Unmatched visibility for touring and safety. Roomy inside and comfortable rear seat for passengers up to 6' tall. Great driving car with ample power. Good human factors design for driver - everything obvious and handy. Replaced all 4 O2 sensors, starter, radiator and alternator between 105K & 120K miles, front camber kit and rotors are due. Regular maintenance w/synthetic oil. Altogether a great car that's fun to drive w/a lot of good miles left in it.

Best Features

Engine is flawless. Great visibility. Comfortable all-day seats. Great power/weight/mileage combination.

Worst Features

Improved suspension - maybe too much power and potential speed for the suspension supplied. Improved in later generations, but with compromises in weight.
