"I bought this car from a friend for free he took great care of it before handy down to me. Drove a '85 Maxima that was a highly reliable car too but love my '93 more its the best ever with gas mileage being best gets over 27 mpg and interior is still holding up. This car is running strong, replaced set of tires, struts, distributor cap, CV axles, window motors and 3 transmissions which is very common on these cars even 6th generations too. I love my GXE Maxima a good reliable transportation there isn't no oil leaks or overheating but transmission is a big problem which Nissan didn't do something right on some generations as 3rd and 6th generations. It runs and drives really flawless might not be the smoothest car ever on the road but will get you from Point A to Point B anytime getting on the highway. Seats are comfortable, overall car is in mint shape it starts up at first start without no hesitation even doing coldest mornings ever in 2014 we all had surprised car didn't have a hard time cranking up. I love this car definitely feel more a four door sports car I'm looking at replacement for a new Altima because had a great experience out of my two Nissan vehicles which were Maxima cars now switching to Altima because of better resale value. I highly recommend this car to anyone even for 1993 like the feature it has with electric buttons on driver door for lock and unlocking the doors a nice feature for the Maxima being an older school and automatic seatbelts are okay for me but could deal without them because gets on my nerves at times. Paint is holding up well for this car even here in the south of state of Georgia doesn't always be covered all the time surprising as at its age thought be a rusted bucket but looks good for 21 years old. Odometer has a high mileage use synthetic Mobil 1 oil and clean out the injectors myself as taking care of the engine too but let mechanics change transmission fluid and do tire rotations finally passed inspection its a faithfully reliable vehicle."

Pros: "excellent reliability, good power, good handling."

Cons: "none so far after 20 years."

"This has to be the most reliable and trouble free vehicle I've ever owned. I've only performed basic maintenance and the car is 20 years old and at just over 180000 miles. It's never been in the shop of an unscheduled mainetance and has never left me standed. Mostly oil changes and air filter changes with brakes, timing belt, and fluid flushes. Not a lot has been repaired or replaced. The GXE with the single overhead cam (SOHC) engine has great low end torque, decent, power and excellent economy to power ratio. I routinely get 27-28 MPG on mixed city/hiway driving on my daily 90 mile round trip commute. She's getting old, with paint fade and some minor interior electrical quirks (seatbelt chimes every now and then, but no other issues. Hard to let her go and get a newer car since I'm still very happy with the power, handling, peformance, and value of this commuter. I've had other cars while owning this Maxima, but those cars are long gone and I still have my Maxima. Cheap to maintain and cheap to run. Never lets me down. Get's me there in comfort and economically. what else can I ask of a car? In 20 years only changed: six sets of tires three sets of front and rear brakes three batteries three major tune ups with plugs, wires, cap/rotor. both front axels countless oil and filter and air filter changes. still on original shocks, alternater, and radiator. How's that for a 20year old with 180000 miles?!!"

"I sold it because it was 13 years old and had almost 300,000 miles. It was at the age where a few major things needed to be replaced and I opted for a newer car instead of repair bills. In hindsight, I should have kept it. It was a v-6, drove like a dream and got great gas mileage, even in the mountains: 23/city 33/highway. I loved almost everything about it! I've had buyer's remorse since the day I bought a Honda Accord to replace it...and gotten 23 mpg/highway in a car I don't love."

"I actually own and drive this car. I Also bought A late model maxima for my sister based on My maxima's performance. P.S. This is a pretty fast car and The Faster You Drive The Quicker your gas burns in any car it's common sence."

"nissan gets far to much for there cars and trucks when it comes to dealer finnance like my 04 nissan maxama kbb said its only worth 4000.00 on a 9000.00 $ loan so do you think with 81010 miles on it it)s really worth the money. no i don)t think so."
