My Maxima is magnificent!

My 2004 Maxima has been very reliable as was the Maxima that I owned previously. I purchased it used in 2013 and have been extremely happy. My mechanic cannot believe how this car runs for a 14 year old. In fact he offered to buy it from me. This vehicle has comfortable seating and it has climate control that has not failed. The vehicle has needed very basic and the usual repairs for a "mature" car. I had the brake pads replaced twice in 5 years, exhaust pipe replaced and a new radiator was needed last summer otherwise nothing very costly.

Great old car. Some problems but still kicking!

We have had our Nissan for four years and it is still kicking. It has its issues but with 202,000 miles that is to be expected. My wife loves he heated seats and steering wheel. I love that it is paid for. The transmission kicks, it leaks coolant, and will overheat when the coolant gets low but it has not died yet. When it does finally give up the ghost we would love to get another newer Nissan maxima with fewer miles. I would highly recommend this car to friends and family.

Fast Family Car with style

This year of the Maxima, 2004 is very nice. The car is very spacious with good trunk room. It has a 6 disc changer and tape player but no USB plugs or Bluetooth connections. The car still runs well in 2019 but the paint has deteriorated on the trunk and hood and working down the back panels. Overall good car, oh keep loose change out the middle console in front of the gear shift. One penny knocked my entire computer system out, locking the car.
