2002 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


This is a great car fun to drive. Gas mileage is pretty good. It requires premium gas at least 91 octane. I used 87 octane and the car sounded like a diesel engine. Not good! Spend the little extra money and use premium and the car will run a lot better. This is my 2nd Maxima. I previously owned a 94 Maxima GXE, kept it til 235,000 miles and everything still worked. I plan to do the same with this car. Everything is laid out pretty nice and easy to use, Bose stereo sounds w/sub really great. Ride is a bit rough on bumpy roads, but it's an SE with sports suspension. GLE I suppose will have a better ride, but you can't beat the handle on the SE with 6sp gear box. Which rare car to find!

Best Features

Bose stereo, comfort, leg room, V6 255 hp 6sp manual (a beast!). Trunk space. Visibility.

Worst Features

Torque steer, road noise.
