2004 Nissan Maxima Sedan 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my 3rd Nissan Maxima (previous
models 1996 GXE, 2000 GLE). I
absolutely LOVE this car!!! Nissan
really got it right this time. This
version is much more comfortable than
previous versions. The car handles and
rides very well. Also, a lot more
luxury items than previous models.


Best Features

Stereo system, sound system controls on steering wheel, upgrades borrowed from the Infinity line, i.e., telescoping steering wheel, memory driver's front seat, heated seats.


Worst Features

A place to put loose change and small trash items. Use leather for door panels instead of "terry cloth". Would be nice if moonroof would close when the ignition is turned off (seen this feature with Toyota's). Would like to see a redesign of the front grill.

2004 Nissan Maxima Sedan 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Shopped for nearly 4 months, and
really drove them all. Even took a
decibel meter to measure road noise.
Maxima was number 1. For overall form,
fit, and function nothing compares
under $40k. We drive it everyday to
work and to Canada twice a month for
ski trips. I can afford nearly any
other human car, I'd buy another
Maxima, dot.


Best Features

Everything, it's pure love


Worst Features

Use Nissian Marono engine to improve gas mileage. As with either engine the car will accelerate and cruise well within the happy/exciting spectrum, might as well get the gas mileage. Larger opening for skis, 4 seater version.

2004 Nissan Maxima Sedan 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The 2004 Max is my fifth. I started
with a 91,92,98,2000 and now the 04.
The 04 Max is by far the best of the
litter. It has come a long way. I
thought my 2000 Max was as good as it
could get, but Nissan proved me wrong.
The 04 is a good looking car (sexie as
my wife says) and the performance
matches the look. I had it in the
drive way 45 minutes and the neighbors
were all over it. In fact two of them
asked me to adopt them......no kidding.

It is fun to drive. My previous cars
all were manual shifts, but I went with
the automatic/manual trans in the 04. I
am thrilled with its performance.

If you love to drive, the 04 max is
just for you.


Best Features

The memory settings for seat, steering wheel, etc. The center display is very readable in bright sun lite.


Worst Features

None to speak of.......I'll let that to Nissan to surprise me in my next one.

Review

I absolutely love this car. I loved my
01 SL but this is so much better.
Roomy, fun to drive and it turns a lot
of heads. I love the skyview too. I
purchased in 5/03 and have more than
17K miles now...gets 26-27 mpg on
freeway and 23-25 in the city. I sit
traffic everyday and it still gets gas
mileage.I didn't get the nav. system
but love the display anyway, has a lot
of useful info. especially the
maintenance reminder. Will definitely
recommend and purchase the next
generation.


Best Features

Heated seats and dual driver seat memory In dash CD changer and awesome sound system with the steering wheel controls is great.


Worst Features

I have 18's and the turning radius is bad. The heating/AC is confusing..I just recently found the location of the AC adapter...that has to be more easily accessible.
