1996 Nissan Maxima GLE from North America
This car is not worth the money and hassle for the repairs
I have probably spent more on car repairs than payments since I bought my car 17 months ago.
I have had the alternator, starter, and O2 sensors replaced twice.
I just got the drive axles, front shocks/struts, and both strut mounts replaced. I still need to get the back struts replaced. Just today alone I spent $515 on my car and still don't have everything fixed on it.
I have had my front brakes fixed twice, most recently in August and they already sound horrible (it's November).
It also bents and scratches very easily. I am very careful with where I part my car, and I still have several dings on both sides in the front doors.
My car is very comfortable and nice, but it's not worth how much money I am pumping into it. If I didn't owe more than it was worth I would be rid of it in a flash.
I can't wait to get rid of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I think this review is bad. I have a GLE and had no problems what so ever. Maybe your car was a lemon, but there are always a few. And as far as your rotors going, I think that may have been a result of not changing your brake bads leading to metal scraping against metal. I love my 96 GLE and apparently so does everyone else according to reviews on this site...
