I LOVE my Maxima!!!! by Kitkat Tampa on 01/18/2012. Trim: 2001 Nissan Maxima SE, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Bought this car new back in 2001, and now I have 125,000 miles on it. It's got great acceleration , very peppy, can always get out of the way if I need to, fun to drive, very, very reliable car. Great sound system, great A/C, nice interior, still looks really good outside, if people could be considerate of others when they park and not put dings in it!! Just a really good overall car. I'd buy one again in a heartbeat..
Cons: Not much..I have been very happy with it, but I have had a few brake issues with it,,rotor resurfacing and new rotors, the leather seats in back have torn somewhat, but I think that's more from my kids being careless and throwing backpacks in it..turning radius could be a little better, but I'm used to it now..
Overall review: I have been extremely pleased with this car, have had it since day one..almost 11 years now, it'll be a sad day for me when I have to let it go, but I am passing it on to my daughter, so it won't be far....I did read how some people say to become acquainted with their mechanic..I do not know what they are talking about..regular oil changes, basic maintenance, still looks really nice for 125,000 miles,,I must be doing something right!! It's really been a very easy car to own,,very few trips to the mechanic and still runs like new. It's always been extremely reliable and has never let me down or stranded me anywhere. We are seriously considering another new Maxima in the next year or so and I just hope it will be as great as this one has been, I wouldn't even consider anything else, with the exception of Infiniti..but I test drove a couple times and they seemed to ride rather rough and coarse, liked the Maxima's ride much better..
