Nissan Maxima 2000 / 2003.
I own 2 Maxima one 2000 and another 2003. I have convinced myself as 6 years Nissan owner that they are a REAL JUNK. Don't waste your money on it, they have all the same problems. I find the cars with no problems only in first 3-4years for a brand new car. After that they start to COLLAPSE. The Engine light is ALWAYS one. You fix it by replacing a crap sensor and then comes back in 1-2 months for another sensor. I had IDENTICAL problems on my both Maxima which include:
- mass airflow sensor - crap
- O2 sensors (prepare to change them like broken eggs)
- ignition coils
- all kinds of engine related issues like : air flow, throttle, ignition, car stales, etc.
I spent thousands of dollars on these CRAP CARs so I will never own a Nissan again, even if I get it for free. I had the chance to see a confidential car reliability report for Canada made for auto makers and only available to them. They ranked the cars based on number of defects per year. Nissan ranked no 20 out of 30. The real good brands would be in top 10. So don't bother spending your money on this junk name.
Sorry for saying all these but imagine what I feel after owning two of them with identical problems and LOTS of money wasted in repairs and ending with a POOR sale value.
This brand has serioUs issues, not recommended by someone who owned two Maxima, their flagship car. A shame to make this junk and sell it so expensive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
