Had to change the O2 sensors a couple of times.
The shocks seem to get worn out pretty quickly, but the car is still drivable.
Currently I am experiencing jerks when accelerating and times when the car just shuts off. It has been happening for roughly a year, and happens quite frequent. Have taken in it in twice to the dealer and replaced two parts (cannot remember what I replaced) but the problem is still persisting. In the shop currently to fix same problem, if it doesn't work I will have to get rid of it (SADLY!!).
The car is very responsive, and you feel the power even when cruising at 100+ km/h, and decide to pass. * (Try getting a 5 speed manual, even more responsive).
Reliable engine, and great fuel efficiency for the size of the car. Costs me roughly 50-55 CAD to fill tank at $1.02/liter, and that will last me roughly 500 to 525 km in the city, and just above 600 to 625 km on the highway.
Even the base model comes loaded with the usual necessities. Wish I had gotten the BOSE sound system.
Great car for families with youngsters and teens (Good luck trying to keep the teen from driving!).
Might actually look for a newer model with low kilometers and continue with the Maxima heritage.
