If the price is right it's worth it.
2001 Nissan Maxima
The gas mileage you get is decent, and the amenities in the interior are nice. I personally do not like the sounds it makes when being started and it is not the first Nissan I have heard with the same sound. The ride is ok but the power steering hose and some sort of sensor belt are being replaced on mine currently. The body style is not my favorite but it does appear nicer in lighter colors. The stereo volume shorts out and I can only use the volume adjuster on the steering wheel most days. I did only pay 3500 for it so given the investment and cost to fix, I got an "ok" deal. It's not my first choice but it is an ok car. The upside is that it does ride very smooth, has 4 doors and I love the trunk button on the remote.
