"Minimal Maintenance required. Original engine and transmission still runs strong. Major front end work done. After 189,000 miles, it has the same lights all in working condition. Everything works on it cruise control, even the key FOBS. The only thing I noticed was the visor lights are not working. It's an amazing car."

"Can't comment on the newer Maximas, but the 1996 model was a solid performer. Gas mileage in the low to mid 20's around town, 30-ish on the highway, enough performance to merge onto the highway and pass other traffic with power to spare. Comfortable and very, very reliable (until it started reaching its end of life - somewhere around the 155,000 mile mark!) Other than the alternator being a little on the weak side and some window motor issues, not much to complain about. Overall, I have been very please with this car and wished it lasted even longer."
