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


Review

My '02 Maxima is the best car I've
owned. The 255 hp engine's performance
is superb and runs great on regular.
The heated seats and steering wheel
make early morning winter drives
bearable. I plan to keep it until
200,000 miles.


Best Features

Moon roof, 17" wheels, leather, power all, stereo make this car fun to own.


Worst Features

Shorten the turning radius. Lights for the steering wheel radio & cruise buttons

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


Review

Great car, fun to drive and reliable.
Big letdown is the ease that thieves
can steal the headlamps - done to me in
10 minutes and replacement cost is
tremendous - $2,100. Terrible,
unsecure design by Nissan.


Best Features

Engine performance and handling.


Worst Features

Security for the headlamps !

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


Review

As expected the Maxima has performed
exceptionally well over the first
year. I have put 25K mileson my
Maxima in the first year.
The good: I have no major complaints
about any of the major systems. The
traction control works very well in
deep snow. Fit and finish is
outstanding. This car wants to go
80-90 mph.
The not-good (mostly nit-picking):
Problems with an ABS sensor has taken
literally months to fix while the part
was on back order. A problem with the
CD player/Radio required a
replacement. Sometimes feels soft in
long turns like an on/off ramp.

Overall: This is by far one of the
best cars I have had the pleasure to
drive.


Best Features

The xeon headlights are a must buy for any new car. Rear leg room is excellent. Heated stearing wheel. (who knew!?) Rear tail lights. 240 hp.


Worst Features

The heated seat controls could be in a better place, easy to accidentally turn on. (bad in summer leather seats!) Another DC port in the front would also be nice. Trunk hinge/mechanism creates a 'dead zone' in the trunk. (Honda has this right.)

Review

Great car to have, especially if you
drive in the hwy. Engine very
powerful, lots of room, sound system
the best, lots of space in the trunk,
love the idea of having Xenon light.


Best Features

Heat on both front seats and the steering wheel


Worst Features

Should have Xenon light on the high beams, also the rearview mirror does not have a compass
