1994 Nissan Maxima GXE 3.0L FI from North America
Costly to repair around 100K miles
Heater controls went out at 85K.
Driver's seat worn.
Boise Radio/CD, clock intermittent at 87K.
Transmission blown at 92K.
It's a nice car, fully featured, quiet, and plenty of power. Slower off the line, but has power to spare on the highway. Leans/floats a bit, but handles pretty well overall. I inherited this '94 Maxima GXE with about 80K miles about two years ago. Loved the interior and the power, but the fan blower went after about 6 months - only blows on high and the display is intermittent. It's too costly to replace the electronic control unit. Bose radio and clock are also intermittent, and not practical to repair.
At 96K, the transmission just went out. Will have it replaced or rebuilt because the body and engine are in excellent shape, and we intend to keep it as long as economically possible.
Overall, it's a nice car. But we're running into some heavy repair bills all of a sudden.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
