So far not to bad but getting nervous
By Jake on


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


142k and aside from the usual brakes, tires, etc I only had some stupid bracket underneath break and needed a new muffler. But now I need the timing chain replaced and might as well do the water pump. The mechanic is trying to warn me about spending $1500 on the timing chain when these are notorious for oil pressure problems. I have no current oil problems but I need this car to last up to 200k miles. I haven't had a payment in four years so $1500 seems like nothing, way better than a car payment!

Best Features

Torque, you can pass when you wanna!

Worst Features

Turning radius is a joke, I think my dad's 1985 Buick LeSabre had a better turning radius. You get to practice 3 point turns quite often. LOL
