2003 Nissan Maxima GLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


I've had this car for almost 5 years and have driven it to my hearts content. The car has 115k miles, still smooth, strong and a pleasure to drive. The stereo is temperamental and skips once in a while. But when in good mood, the Bose makes you feel like you're in a concert hall. Terrific power and smooth transmission. Good marriage between the engine and the transmission. No problem in the snow. Had problem with brakes, stereo and exhaust systems. Engine light comes out often (gas cap issue). Handling not comparable to German counter parts but good enough to throw around in the corners and have some fun. Suspension is soft, but serene in good road surface. Bumpy on bad surface.

Best Features

Bose stereo, engine and transmission, steering wheel warmer, fun factor, smooth ride in good roads, stress free driving, moonroof, acceleration.

Worst Features

Brakes, exhaust, interior noise level, suspension (too bumpy on rough roads), handling, tire grip, torque steer, body integrity, seat comfort (not enough support), hard to see dash board clock during the day, acclaimed micro filter system.
