Texas '95 Maxima lover by 1whatever on 05/06/2010. Trim: 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: It's all about how you take care of your vehicle. 280,000 miles, original alternator, A/C compressor, exhaust system (all the way back to the end of the tailpipe). Acceleration is still unbelievable. Brakes seem to last forever (changed twice), on its second water pump (and I'm not real sure that the first was bad), original injectors, original tranny (oil & filter changes every 100,000), engine oil & filter changes every 3k to 4k with conventional oil and a shot of Slick 50 every now and then. Cloth seats, material still good as new. Anybody know where I can buy a new one, 'cause I'd buy it again.
Cons: Did have to replace the drivers seat bottom half because the sheet metal broke through where it bolts to the seat frame. Same electric motors. EGR valves have to be changed and ports cleaned about every 75,000. Electric antenae only lasted 180,000 miles and gears stripped (if I could have seen it maybe a little added grease and it might still be working). Like the poster above, the lights on the climate control , electric windows, radio, etc. failed early (somewhere around 150,000), but by then I knew where all the buttons were.
Overall review: All I can say is that they don't make them like they used to. They last a whole lot longer and that's fine with me.
