This is my third XLE, and I just
learned that the 2003 headlight were
mounted or designed to be easily taken.
I learned this after it happened to me.
I have 4,000 miles on the car. It is at
the car dealer being repaired. There is
over 3,200 worth of damage, I am
hesitate to take it when it is finished.
As, the police told me, they know where
you live and will be back,this car is
always being hit on. The lights just
I check with the dealer who confirmed
this, Nisson has not recalled them or
come up with a anti theft devise. I
feel like a sitting duck.
If anyone knows how to avoid having the
lights taken, please tell me.
The way it handles the road. It is a
pleasure to drive.
Do something about the lights. Develope
a way that they cannot be taken so
I have to admit that I am pleased with
the Maxima overall; although I would
have waited for the 2004 model though.
I have had the car for about 8 months
and it has been vandalized three times!!
If you live in the Northeast, don't buy
this car! It is in your best interest
to buy the 2004 model or buy something
else. The research was not available
when I bought this car and I am sorry I
bought it. When you pay up to $3500 for
a pair of headlights you get a little
bitter. It is a beautiful car but the
headache is not worth it.
The ride and the sound system
The headlights should be more secure;
especially since it only takes crooks 30
seconds to steal them!!!!!!
Asked dealer not to give me firestone
or bridgstone tires. it turned out
that all my bridgstone tires were
replaced by goodyear eagles. Car rides
harder than any new car I have ever
been in. It is extremely powerful but
has horrible gas mileage. seats are
comfortable. I have a bad back. Extras
are an expensive ripoff. 2000 nissan
maxima was a better car. these cars
need independent rear suspension.
Would I buy another maxima? not a
chance. far over-priced for what you
suspension,much better with rear wheel
drive,less gimmicks for extras, more
realistic price. car is not worth
25000-30000 altima ma is basically the
same car. should have wood panelsfor
This is a super car. I have owned 4
Nissans and this is a fun car to drive.
I had a 280ZX and 240SX too. This car
is a better option than the Altima.
Friends with new cars, (Honda Accord,
Honda Pilot, etc.)love to ride in my
Power and acceleration, headlights
really light up the road ahead, memory
seats, roomy inside and comfortable
seats. Like the stereo - but slow to
load all 6 CDs, side airbags add to
safety, garage door opener in visor,
stereo controls on steering wheel
Light up controls on steering wheel,
Trip computer very inaccurate, make
compass standard, telescope steering
wheel, AC/heat vents for back,
continuous fan speed, dual temp setting
for front. rain noise on side windows -
sounds like hail hitting it.
