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


Review

just bought my wife a preowened '02
maxima SE with 12k miles on it. wow! is
all I can say. we have had 3 other
maximas before this one and it just
keeps getting better. great car, great
pickup, awesome reliability all we have
done was maintenace and pay our
insurance. I wouldn't waste you time
looking at stripped down Honda's and
Toyota's for the same money. Go out Buy
a Maxima you won't regret it. As for
those driving the BMW 3 series i'll
race your $40k car and guess what? you
will lose! This car is awesome!


Best Features

engine performance, horsepower, overall feel of the car, Xenon lights.


Worst Features

would like to see power driver and passenger seats standard in all models.

2002 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Yes it's beautiful, fast and rides
great but do not buy this car if you
live in North Jersy!! The Xenon
headlights have been stolen from mine 3
times. As soon as I get it back from
the body shop I'm trading it in for
something with Halogens.

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


Review

After test driving many of the more
expensive 4-door sedans on the market,
I knew that the Maxima was definitely
my pick. Who wants to spend more money
to look like an old man when you're 25?
This car is very functional, sporty and
fun to drive. Nissan's 3.5L 6cyl engine
begs you to give it gas and the
suspension does not mind hard
cornering. The engine can withstand a
serious amount of punishment and so can
the transmission! SE suspensions are
tuned to provide a busy, sportscar type
of ride and you feel just that. It is
so fun to embarrass VW's, Audi's,
BMW's, Acura's & Mustangs without
making one upgrade!

Review

It is a great car. You have to love the
VQ35DE. It's smooth, and if you squint,
you can hear a V12!

Review

I love this car, overall quality is a
10 easy. Has lots of power and just
about every gadget you could need.
NissanUsa needs to address the problem
with paint chips though. 2 days and I
have 20 paint chips down to the primer.
My acura has 7 after 4 years in the
same driving area. That is pretty
ridiculous. Now I have to pay out of
pocket to have the hood and bumper re-
painted and then add a clear bra. If
they could fix that then this would be
the perfect car.


Best Features

Sunroof control, trip computer, auto- dimming mirror, power.


Worst Features

Paint job is horribly thin.
