1989 Nissan Maxima SE V6 from North America
Affordable luxury and performance
Nothing has gone wrong since I've had it, but...
The digital clock works but you have to push it in every once and awhile to see it perfect, but it's visible at all times.
Heater doesn't work, but the A/C does, they cut it off because it was eating up the water.
For the amount of time that I have had it, it kicks ass!! It handles great and has some very very comfortable seats up front. I'm 6'5", so the guy behind doesn't get much leg room but he fits.
It comes fully loaded, with the sunroof, power windows, automatic seatbealts, adjustable seat, etc... It also bumps great with my alpine if you're willing to waste a few bucks on a sound system.
Also mine came with some new weather tread Michellen tires and special Nissan rims.
Dashboard looks great, and the white light on the gauges looks great, I just put in a blue backlight.
Bottom line, it looks great, runs great, and it's a fully loaded luxury car, except that it doesn't have leather seats. But, leather seats wouldn't look great in it (Black interior makes it look even better).
Affordable price, I got mine for $4,900.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My boyfriend just bought a Maxima.
Very comfortable.. His has leather seats, and he also put in a Alpine deck, and is thinking about blue lights behind the gauges.
He has bought some rims, and is thinking about lowering the car. But is unsure of how it will ride..
He has a one of the few standard 89' Maxima's, there is approximately 130,000 mile (which is about 200,000 KM). And someone asked him about the timing belt..?
Do you have any idea when is a good time to change it (as to how many KM are on the car).
How does the motor hold up, in general: Like for changing things (ex. clutch, timing belt, steering rack) things like that..
And overall things we should look out for??
One more question:
The clock fades: it fades to the center, which is kind of odd??
Thank you very much!!
