Pros: "Substantial, solid, comfortable and stylish."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Classy car, looked and felt expensive; roomy for driver as well as passengers, especially comfortable on long trips and had all the power you wanted when you wanted...or needed it. Just a really solid car. Of all the cars I've owned or driven, this was by far my favorite."

"Bought it as my first car over a year and a half ago. For the most part, it's been a great car. Mileage and car maintenance guide wasn't included with car purchase. Only have had one time where repairs were way more than I thought they would be. The original radio/CD player did not work in my car(radio did, CD player did not) so have another one in my car. The Bose sound system is great and overall, I feel like the car gets good gas mileage. The brakes sometimes feel odd, if I'm trying to stop really fast after traveling above 50 MPH...Overall I'd recommend it. Leather seats are nice"

"Fine example of Nissans best, we have owned from new 3 Maximas. This vehicle is a daily driver from my wife. She is going to retire and time to sell the vehicle. Need room in the Garage. Always maintained above manufacturers recommendations. Tires have less than 1000 miles on them. Yokahama's best. If you are in need of a dependable daily driver or someones first car this may be your answer, very dependable."

"paid $5900 when it had 80,000 miles on it, & put $6500 into this car in less than 4 years. I thought maxima's were good cars. Off the top of my head, I have replaced the compressor, alternator, starter 3X, Tie rods and ball joints 2X, wheel bearings 2X, Exhaust, Radiator, driver window motor 2X, No interior light, possessed stereo, cd player doesn't work, trunk popper doesn't work, key jams in trunk, Belt, O2 sensor, some other sensor, some engine part, and I'm sure there is more that is slipping my mind at this time, never mind wear n tear such as brakes and tires, a $109 key, oil changes etc. I DO NOT RECOMMEND A MAXIMA"

Pros: "A blast, rocketship with 4 doors."

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

"I bought this car in 2003 from Hertz car sales with 25K miles on it. It is an absolute rocketship, completely dependable, comfortable, a blast to drive, and has our lady of blessed acceleration, having this car means you can blast past anyone, whenever you need to. I feel that this car will probably last me until whenever, and I've just upgraded it over the years, with the latest gadgets, and it has all of the bells and whistles that the new ones do, as well as investing a couple of hundred in putting in a new computer chip for the engine, every few years. I'm on the '12 chip and it now get's 25 city, and well over 30 mpg on the road. It's my baby, and isn't going anywhere soon. Only reason I gave it a nine one the driving dynamic's is it's turning radius isn't as good as it could be, but I'll live."
