1996 Nissan Maxima GLE V6 from North America
Reliable, trouble free, powerful luxury
Nothing but standard maintenance. CD player broke twice.
This is an exceptional car, if you can find one properly maintained. Also very fast & powerful, great pickup. It is killing me that I have to part ways with mine finally; the body has finally given into rust, but that's more from the way we've stored it than a manufacturing problem - I see lots of these mid 90s Maximas on the road still, and those are rust free. Too bad I could not have kept mine better protected, but that's 17 Canadian salty winters it went through before giving up.
It still drives perfectly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend one, they're cheap now to own with a surprising amount of luxury & power (GLE model). Don't waste money on a $30,000 car when you can get one of these for $3000 or less. I loved the heated seats, leather interior, auto thermostat heating controls, sportshift, comfort, cruise, 200hp V6 power, reasonable fuel economy, & most of all, the side headlights that would turn on with the indicators - hence illuminating sideways the area you were turning into. Great for navigating into a dark country driveway. What a great idea! Loved this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
