Unbelievable Bang for the Buck

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


I've purchased my '01 Maxima SE 5-
speed last September and I'm happy to
report that nearly 1 year and 14K
miles later, absolutely no faults to
be found...this car is amazing! I've
done nothing but routine maintenance.
If I had to nitpick, my gripes are
slightly notchy manual shift action
and the pain of pulling out the
premium gas pump. Although I have run
regular and mid-grade fuel on occasion
with no ill-effects, Nissan should
calibrate their Max to run on 87 or 89
octane, even for a few horsepower
penalty. Nevertheless, if this car
stays as solid and reliable through
the long haul, I'll definately be back
for another.

Best Features

222 Horsepower V6 - pure rocket ship grunt with decent fuel economy Styling - not too flashy, but sporty Value for the $$ - Camry and Accord owners, you don't know what you're missing!

Worst Features

Crisper manual transmission Regular fuel please! More adjustable steering wheel
