Reliable car

The window regulator had to be replaced 3 times is anyone else having this problem? I noticed the rocker panel rusted. But it's great highway driving!


Most comfy car I’ve owned so far

This is a good car to have decent leg room in the back and good leg room up front it’s got comfy seats so you don’t feel uncomfortable so better for road trips over all nice car


Owned Three Maximas, 94, 03, 08

I have bought three Maxima's and today I only owned the 08. Just traded my 03 for a Honda CR-V. The 03 Max I kept 18, years, at a cost but I loved the car, and the 94, I gave to Son in 2010. The 08 Maxima was the wife's car and caused me no expenses until 2019. A major engine flaw which I decided to have fixed. A real disappointment that was with only about 85,000 miles. All of my Nissans were purchased new.


I returned it

It looked great at night (only chance I got to observe it)...turned out to be a terrible car with plenty of issues. I returned it


Best car I have ever owned

Has all the bells and whistles a car could have. Love the built in garage door openers. Handsfree talking, and Bose sound system. Kept very clean, love the leather seats. Heated seats and steering wheel always nice. Not been in an accident. Regular oil changes and maintenance. V6 engine has the get up and go.


Most reliable car I owned

I love the Max!! Just the best! If ur looking for a car to fit all ur needs this is it. Great prices great gas savers great for families.


I love my car

This car has been so reliable. It has an amazing sound system and definitely has some horse power. I get compliments on this car so much for an older car.


Very nice and reliable

This car has plenty of power, economical, smooth driving, and great features. I love the sound system, Bose, and heated steering wheel... That is a spoiler!


Luxury Sedan without Luxury Pricetag

I'm very impressed with this Maxima! I am a former auto mechanic of 7 years, worked at Mazda, Honda, and Toyota Dealerships. I have driven all kinds of vehicles personall as well, BMW, Mercedes, Lincoln... and the Maxima leaves a great impression on me.


Not close to what i expected

I think it Would be a nice vehicle if it wasnt for the common problems. Like malfunctioning gear shifter. Wheel bearings and motormounts tire pressure sensors also malfunction and are hard to reset . I have owned several used vehicles so far this one has had the most irritating issues. Wish i wouldve bought another camry.
