"The Executive Ride with all the Muscles" by Kenny from Toronto on 05/08/2008. Trim: 1989 Nissan Maxima GXE (auto), Owned 7 years.
Pros: The Power, The Luxery, The Reliability, The Strength of the Vehicle. The Looks, The Advanced Technology in many cars dont utilize even up to today. Electronic Suspension Control Digital Dash with Heads up Display (speedometer on windsheild) Digital Climate Control Heated Seats with Electronic Adjustments and of course, all the perks of luxery, from leather to sunroof.
Cons: Although this wasnt a perfect 10, the only thing I dislike about this bad boy car is the Transmission kept burning out. In the course of almost 10 years owning a 1989 Maxima, I have changed it 3 times. Later finding out that this generation 1989~1994 had transmissions that used very soft gears that easily cooked. On my 3rd Transmission I Installed an external transmission cooler and I had no problems since and the Car did so well. Oh yeah no cupholders but who cares right, ha!, and the body rusts to quickly.
Overall review: Overall I think this car is extrremely great, and is generally very solid in performance and luxery. I still would recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants a tough car with the perks. The motor isnt aluminum its Iron which is real good, and it produces and very smooth clean ride on the road. Givin its notorious transmission issue, and learning to use an extra cooler for the transmission, this car is simply flawless.

Reliability by Patrick in Sierra Vista on 07/11/2005. Trim: 1989 Nissan Maxima GXE (auto), Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Bought this car in new Nov 1988 and it's been a dream. New battery every five years, new tires every seven and did change the alternator at year 16, and was shocked. I like the style and love the reliability and will hate to trade it in for a new 2006. I only have 150K miles and feel that 250K will be no problem with new struts.
Cons: The clock has dimmed to nearly unreadable. And the breaks seemed to be a weak point.
Overall review: Best car I ever bought and it still looks good as the White exterior remained sharp overall.

Another Success Story, 230k Miles +, Still Counting by Frank on 09/25/2004. Trim: 1989 Nissan Maxima GXE (auto), Owned 9 years.
Pros: Smooth and powerful power train. Engine is oversize for the vehicle and has never been over worked. Sometime, I don't change oil for over a year; the oil still looks clear and full. Just amazing! It's the kind of vehicle you can just keep driving and forget about it.
Cons: Accessories start falling apart after 7-8 years: speedometer, motor for power windows, window shield wiper pump, outside air vent sticking open, etc. No big problems, but nagging.
Overall review: Extremely smooth, powerful, and reliable.
