Fast Family Car with style

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

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.

Low profile tires and the MRIs long and skinny goes from front seat to back.

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

It is very Lucius it has sunroof and power windows and heated seats in the front it would be nice if it was in the back too though. It is got a moon roof that does not even open though. And it is long and skinny. Goes from the front to the back seat. Has a lot of space in both the front and back seats. And the trunk as well. The seats fold down and the radio has a big screen that goes with it that is not touch screen though.

My Nissan maxima is an amazing car that I highly recommend.

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

I love my maxima. I drive it daily and it handles great as well as it is great on gas. It came with a factory radio with Bose speakers which makes the stereo that much better. I love the sunroof as well as it is electric. The performance on this car is amazing, great for a road trip on just around town. The most comfortable car that I have ever had with the all power package. Truly a reliable care with very little issues.

I love my car. After I fix the sensor. My car will drive very smooth.

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

One of the sensors keeps detaching. Otherwise, it drives very nice. The battery is correctly dead and unsure if it has an oil leak, very nice color, fully loaded, it has leather seats, a sunroof, power locks and windows, nice stereo. When the sensor detaches, it will just stop. It doesn't matter if it is on the highway or street. If I drive 80 mph to have a chance that the sensor doesn't detach and keep the moving.


Beautiful interior with many option.

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

Gas mileage great. Easy to drive. Very comfortable seats. Nice interior. Would recommend this vehicle to everyone and anyone. Love to drive it and love going long distance. Drove it across country with no problems and love to do it again. Great color and love the mohawk sunroof and has great stereo system. Love the navigation system. Great performance and engine is outstanding.

Nissan maxima is very high end and easy on the pocket book.

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

My car has all the bells and whistles... From automatic locks and windows. Heated seats on those cold days. My car gets 29 mpg in town and 37 mpg on why The maintenance on this beauty is very simple. If I can do it anyone can! Bluetooth and reverse camera the list goes on and on... You can't go wrong with a Nissan.

Do not buy used, Recommended buy this car new

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

Good car it just needs something fixed on it way too often. Everything that has fluid leaks. It is terrible on gas. It might be alright if it was newer but it has to many problems. I bought it used with over 100,000 miles on it & it now has almost 200,000 miles. I have had to fix way too much on it.

Maxima large and in charge

2004 Nissan Maxima SE

Great interior space as well as trunk space. Very powerful engine as well. Had transmission problems in the past. Gas mileage is strong for a bigger vehicle. Paint has held up, metal strips on the top of the roof has gotten sun damaged. Factory tires also has recall issues.
