2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


my 3rd Maxima I have owned and by far the absolute worst!! I have spent well over $8,000 on mechanical repairs (not maintenance) and it still has under 80k miles on it.
Transmission valve body, both catalytic converters, both primary and secondary timing chains tensioners and guides, multiple sensors, 4 sets of headlights (considered maintenance if it were only 2, but 4 sets!!) I wish I still had my 96 which my neighbor still drives w/ 250k+ miles with minor repairs and maintenance.

Best Features

It looks nice is comfortable and is very fast (when working properly)

Worst Features

Everything. This car that I paid $27k for wasn't worth $2700! mechanically it is a piece of junk!!
