04 maxima SL not worth it
By avalonlady on
Vehicle2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI bought this car new in white diamond pearl with heated seats, Bose 6cd changer, sunroof, etc. This car made a rattling noise since about 30,000mi. Dealer claimed they couldn't hear it as always. Rear struts gone< 30,000 mi, tires worn @ 18,000mi despite rotating every 4,000 mi w/oil change. Gas mileage sucked until I got 100,000mi.then 25mpg. The Bose speakers went out and radio/ 6cd changer failed around 24,000 mi n was replaced with a so- called new 1. At $32,000, I expected better quality.warranty out 110,000mi had 2 replace another radio aftermkt now,tune up @$750, front and rear hub n barrens over $1200. New front struts @ $500.New tires every year at $700 set.no throttle now... Saddd
Best FeaturesLiked the get up and go power at first before the throttle was gone and timing chain issues. Transmission became sluggish. Radio/ 6 cd player was nice until it failed. Not fuel efficient. Sports car feel.
Worst FeaturesDo not like the fact that Nissan main concern is speed. The car resale is lousy n does don't hold up. Maintenance is very expensive. Front grille looks like a bad dental job.
