"I purchased this one owenr car as a dealer trade in three years ago with 145K. I have put nearly 100K on the car in three years and done nothing but normal maintenance. I have had excellent experience with every Nissan I have owned since the first I purchased, a 1990 Stanza"

"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."

Pros: "Luxurious (gotta get leather), reliable, FABULOUS"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I purchased this care after my son brought me home a catalogue from the car show. I went to the dealership and looked for the exact black one with leather and all the bells and whistles. It was fabulous. It is now going on 16 years old and it is still fabulous. Looking up what is worth now by Kelley Blue Book, it stated worth is about $2500. To me it is still worth about $15,000 (if I was making care payments) because I intend to keep it another 3 years or as long as possible because I like this car today as much as I did the day I bought it. Thank you Nissan for this quality, trustworthy, fabulous car."
