I am the original owner and still owner.
This car is very comfortable and is reliable. Great condition. It is garage kept since purchase. This auto is accident free. Interior still looks new.
Comfortable & Value Heavy
Bought mine with 60k miles last year. I'll begin with the good. It offers simple luxury in that there is alot of comfort in the heated seats and a heated steering wheel helps in the winter. It also has great handling after I replaced the rear factory struts. Stock fronts were still in good shape. It also handles great in the snow. Things to look for if shopping. The transmission in this car feels great and sporty in some speed ranges but like a slouch in others. Lower radiator supports rust out. My silver model has faded clear coat which is fairly normal for a 15 year old car but I've seen more impressive paint. It's also common for the Bose subwoofers to fail which really kills the sound system if you listen to music loud. I've put 12k miles so far. I have spent roughly 200-300 on PREVENTATIVE maintenance which I've done myself. Outer tie rods were 50. Rear struts were 120. Sway bar links were 26. I wouldn't recommend the car to someone younger as it's somewhat boring to drive. A 2002 Maxima manual would likely be better. For an older adult looking for reliable comfortable transportation it's certainly a good car.
I owned a 2003 Maxima which was all I could ask for in a car...well, almost. I must be getting older and the sport suspension on the SE Maxima was getting a little too stiff. I bought this car to replace it. Everything in this car has served me very well and the only reason that I am selling mine now is to retain some of the value as I upgrade to my newer Infiniti. It's hard to find anything to complain about here. Powerful, pampers you in luxury, and reliable.
