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


Review

I absolutely love my Maxima. I use it as
a commute car, and it is fun, fun, fun
to drive. Main criteria were
reliability and performance for a
reasonable amount of money, and I got
both with my 2000 Maxima. What I like
the least about the car is the fuel
economy, or the lack of - my driving
style contributes to that :-) I highly
recommand the car.


Best Features

Powerful engine and 6-speed manual - performance!


Worst Features

Fuel economy; driver seat, especially the head rest.

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


Review

Great car. Bought in November of
2001. I have put 36,000 miles on it
since. Not a single problem. Plenty
of power, and fun to drive with the 6-
speed.


Best Features

6-speed manual. 17 inch rims. Xenon headlights. 255 hp.

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


Review

Car stickered at $28,800 and after
shopping around for other cars at the
under $30K price, there was no other
that offered the Max's performance,
reliability, and amenities.
The Audi A4 was VERY nice, much nicer
interior and exterior, but for $30K you
could only get the 1.8T - not fast
enough for a $30K car. Ditto the
Passat. The Acura 3.2TL Type S was
nicer inside, but cost $5 grand more,
and frankly didn't feel as powerful,
the engine wasn't as smooth or quiet
either.
And "upgrading" to an Infiniti I35 just
didn't seem worth the extra $2,000+

The choice was simply Maxima!


Best Features

3.5 liter V6 - just a fantastic engine. Plenty of power, super smooth, quiet, and we get 25 mpg in combined driving! Can't beat it. Nice interior, well laid out. HID Headlights, roomy cabin. BOSE stereo is nice, but VW's Monsoon is better. 17" wheels Memory seats.


Worst Features

Improve suspension. Steering wheel "jumps" over bumps. 80's looking stereo and clock display. The A/C recycle button needs to be turned on EVERY time you get in the car. Ditto for turning off the autodimming rearview mirror. Torque steer. Illuminate steering wheel buttons
