2003 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Been driving almost two years. VQ engine is smooth, powerful, and fun. My biggest complaint is the rear beam suspension. Used to drive a '99 mazda 626 (independent rear) and the tail felt less fishy and more planted than my Maxima. Tires are awful too. poor tires + beam susp make the perfomance subpar for a sports sedan. Build quality can be improved. After two years of driving on stiff suspension and poorly maintained roads, there are quite a few conspicuous interior rattles and creeks.

Best Features

3.5L 255hp VQ engine, the complements i always get, and nice styling.

Worst Features

offer better tires, independent rear suspension, and better interior build quality.
