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


I was a happy owner of this vehicle for just under a year. Then I took it in for its 80,000 mile check up. First they found some oil leaks. Then a few days later my radiator had a leak. Then a week later I found that my head gasket was leaking. Over $3000 in repairs later, I'm selling this money pit and going for something that with better quality parts that will last me longer. All in all, a very disappointing Nissan. BEFORE PURCHASING THIS VEHICLE...open up the hood and check out the design of the radiator: a plastic frame crimped together with the metal. You can expect to drop over $300 replacing that part in the very near future. It's a wonder the part hasn't been recalled.

Best Features

Comfy interior, powerful engine, the overall look of the car

Worst Features

Recall the radiator design, better quality parts that will last longer. Dealership was a nightmare.
