I have had this car since 2003. I used t drive around for my work and used this car as my work car and everyday driver car. It has just passed 300,000 miles and is still running great except for the wear and tear look of a 300,000 mile vehicle. I would recommend this car to anyone it's been great to me for the many years I have driven it!

The car has about 140,000 miles on it now, and with the exception of a battery and starter replacement, there have been very few problems. This car has been driven to death, including many questionable roads after 8 years in Europe. The 5-speed manual is fun to drive, pushes out some good hp, and the car is still pretty despite being 9 years old. The only complaint I have is that the turning radius is comparable to a truck in my opinion. Overall, I love driving this car and would recommend it any day.

The 2000 Maxima SE feels like a spacecraft on steroids! - My car was fully loaded 222hp, can even smoke a bmw. Acceleration is amazing! Comfort - great! Space - outstanding. Styling- Super! - I do have a tasteful body kit though. Con- slightly wider turning radius compared to some other 4d sedans. - Never been an issue unless your trying a 1point u-turn in a narrow alley. Reliability - amazing, done nothing except routine maintenance and this car has never failed on me. If you want BMW performance, spaciousness of a luxury car but half the price!

I am a proud new owner of a 2000 Nissan Maxima Gxe it is an automatic. This car is very responsive and sporty i love the handling this car has on any surface and any speed it is definatley a drivers car the wheel is the best feeling wheel ive ever held, the car has lots of power but yet good fuel economy for those like me that want it. it is my first car and it has 215,000 miles on it but there is no way you can tell by driving it because the transmission is so smooth and responsive. The seats are so comfortable and the stereo is more than enought to satisfy the ear. this car is about as close as you can get to a luxury sports car wtihout breaking the bank to much, and you do not have to use premium that is just recommended mine is perfectly fine using regular just make sure it was used in the car its whole life. You cannot go wrong with buying this car it is very reliable and the value for your money is great these will run a long time with the normal maintnance. All's i can say is its a beautiful car gets lots of compliments and it is a beauty to drive i wouldnt trade this car for any other its perfect. Lots of room for kids and friends as well no cramming in this Maxima.

I had enough with my Mercedes and the repairs and cost of repairs.....I bought a friends 200 Maxima with 216,000 miles on it...WELL! it's now 221,000 and i cannot get over how amazing this car is and still is. everything works like the day it was new. the previous owner basically only did oil changes, tires, brakes and had to do a caliper or two over the years. he also had o replace the catalytic converter..but really! an amazing car, and if you look , they are everywhere!

Truly the 4 Door Sports Car

The Maxima has power to spare, particularly in the high end, making passing on the highway no problem. Acceleration off the line is good as well. The car handles well and the suspension feels sporty, not your typical sedan play in the wheel. Overall great value and performance, this car hooked my family on Nissan for years to come.
