I needed a different car for my family. We had a 1989 Volvo 740 Turbo. Safe car, built like a tank, but gas mileage and handling like a tank. My Uncle was selling his 1995 Maxima that they had purchased new in 95. It was the base model, so 5 speed ... read more

Pros: Acceleration, Bose stereo, comfort, looks
Cons: no cup holders

Maxima: Toyota/Honda killer

by
May 7, 2002 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fast, Furious, Comfortable, Smooth, Reliable, Quiet, Roomy
Cons: Too tall for a sports car ;) swerves a bit when cornered hard
The Bottom Line: This is the car if you get tired of being passed by...and if you want the car going for next 3 years: something you can't say about Mitsubishi/American cars

Being a 21 yr old college kid, reliability and $ meant everything to me. That means: stick with the RELIABLE FOUR--Honda, Toyota, Subaru, Nissan. Given that Subaru's are not so common, my previous car was 1994 Honda Civic EX, 125 HP VTEC ... read more

Pros: Styling, Performance & Dependability
Cons: Brakes
The Bottom Line: Great all around vehicle. The engine is quiet and powerful, the handling and ride are competent with good gas mileage and a super maintenance record. What else do you want?

I've owned this Maxima for 3 years and 40K miles and I'm still impressed with it. The 3.0 liter/ 190 horse engine is bulletproof. It's quiet and responsive while getting very acceptable gas mileage (23/26 MPG). The transmission is smooth as ... read more

Maxima is a no lose choice

by
Jul 12, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: 190 HP smooth acceleration feels and looks expensive inside and out superior handling
Cons: me-too exterior styling; unfortunate rear-end; standard transmission hard to find
The Bottom Line: The best performing sedan for the money - reliable, sporty and teh insurance rates of a family car w/out the ho-hum drive

The Maxima SE is a great car if you are in the market for a roomy, sporty sedan. I had looked at several cars for around 10,000 - a '98 malibu, a 97' intrepid, and my (previous) dream cars - a '97 wrangler and post '91 300zx. The malibu felt cheap ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fast, very reliable, great fuel economy, roomy, excellent controls

The Bottom Line: This is a phenomenal used car bargain. The 5th generation Maxima is very nice, but IMHO not a significant improvement over this 4th generation Maxima.

On August 13th 1994, I took possession of my first new car: a 1995 Nissan Maxima SE. I had it outfitted with every option available, except an automatic transmission and the cold weather package. Right from the start, I felt I made the right ... read more

Just because you have a family doesn't mean you have to be stuck in a "family car." The Nissan Maxima is the best of both worlds. Being a 4-door sedan, it provides plenty of room for the kids, pets, friends, laundry, groceries and whatever ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: good acceleration, reasonable braking, comfortable ride, very spacious, lots of standard options
Cons: starter, slightly mushy cornering, eats air filters, sound system needs work
The Bottom Line: A solidly built car with a touch of performance added in. It's fun to drive and startlingly quick for what it looks to be. Tops the Camry/Accord any day.

The title of this article is set for a reason, that's exactly what the car dealer told me right before I bought this car... and surprised I definately was. Like the review I did on my new car (1997 BMW z3), I'm going to break this down into sections to ... read more

Pros: Responsive engine, comfortable interior, runs well after a decade.

The Bottom Line: Love the car and would like to buy another.

5 years ago, after a decade of adolescent dreaming, I test drove a 95' Maxima SE. Today, after half a decade of beloved driving, I am thrilled to Max out daily. Dubbed the G-Ryde(G=Gold), I am still impressed with it's "world class V-6"(picked that up ... read more
