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.

2001 Nissan maxima with the tape player.

2001 Nissan Maxima

The check engine light stays on constantly, but my car has close to 200,000 miles on it. It is very reliable. It has a tape player which is convenient for Audiobooks. The seats are not leather which makes cleaning spills a little more difficult. There is a weird thing I notice about it thought. When I put something into the charging station, the radio goes fuzzy. Like for example when I plug in my car charger, the radio goes fuzzy, but as soon as I take the charger out, the radio goes back to the way it was. It can get inconvenient at times, but I listen to CDs and tapes a lot.

2001 Nissan Maxima SE

This car is a pretty reliable car for being so old. It is got driver and passenger heated seats, control buttons on the steering wheel and really nice tan interior. The seats are a tan leather, as comfortable as leather car seats can really be. Automatic seat controls, came with a spare tire. Very good gas mileage, roomy backseat and a roomy trunk. Nice center console, cup holders and ashtray. Does not have an aux but has a 5 disc CD player and a tape player. Volume and station changing buttons on steering wheel. Has cruise control!
