Great car for performance at half the cost of a luxury car.

2002 Nissan Maxima GLE

I drive a 2002 Nissan maxima gle. I have 106,000 miles and I bought it almost two years ago with 89,000 miles. It had two previous owners and it was in good shape for the age. I have replaced the thermostat and radiator. This was replaced around 103,000 miles. I have changed the oil every 4,000 to 5,000 miles. There is a 6 CD changer built in to the car that has not worked since I bought the car. A piece connected to the brake pedal broke and I was able to fix it with some materials at my house. The piece that broke controls when the brake lights come on and the brake alert light that shows up on the dash. This piece does not control the actual breaking of the car. The sunroof operates but has a mind of its own sometimes. I researched how to reset the sunroof and have not had issues with it opening randomly since then. The interior is leather in this particular model with heated front seats. The windows are automatic power, the locks are powered, and seats are powered. You can set the driver seat to remember how far or close you would like to sit to the steering wheel. The seat will go to that position when you put the key in the ignition. This model has a security system from the manufacturer. The performance is still really good with it being 17 years old. The transmission shifts smoothly no matter if you gun it or not. This car is extremely comfortable to sit in even when going long distances. I strongly believe that this car can be driven and reliable up to 300,000 miles if routine maintenance is done.

Tough car that I would say is reliable despite the issues it has.

2002 Nissan Maxima GLE

it has a oil leak, a cylinder problem, and some issues with the transmission. It still runs pretty good despite the problems. It is a good car, reliable, comfortable, spacious, and decent on gas. There are no cosmetic issues with the car, the air works good, and the radio works, but is a aftermarket radio.
