Six years and going strong
By mike v on


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


I have been a Nissan fan for many years. My 03 Maxima is my fifth Nissan. I have a 92 max with 175,000 mi on it that I use as my daily driver. I have the titanium ed with gray leather.The car has 37,000 mi on it, and is garage kept. The car is not perfect but overall I like it very much. Although this car dates back to the 2000 model year, I still get compliments all the time. There are some things that do bother me and should be considered. The rear suspension is of the solid beam scissor link variety. This is old school tech and Nissan should be ashamed. To be fair the set up works reasonably well but can't compare with the multi link suspensions that most cars have today.

Best Features

Well put together int, HD lights, award winning VQ engine 255 hp, 60/40 fold down rear seat, easy exit driver's seat, steering wheel radio controls, auto up down windows, auto dimming rear view mirror/compass, chrome looking kick plate inserts, confident handling, good overall build quality, reliability :)
