2003 Nissan Maxima SE 3.5 from North America
Great handling car, but the quality needs to be better
Battery died twice on the car, and the radio stopped working.
Windshield noise (still not resolved).
Passenger door noise (still not resolved)
Great acceleration, but absolutely hate the torque steer.
The car has sporty intentions with better than average styling. I felt that since this was Nissan's flagship model, they would have made the quality of the car better.
When you hit bumps with this car on a cold day, the windshield makes a cracking sound. Took it to the dealer 3x, and they could not figure it out (even with a new windshield).
In addition, the passenger side door in the back has wind noise (sounds like there's a hole there or something) that protrudes into the car.
When taking this car for servicing at the dealership, we always feel ripped off, enough said. Took the car in to get its radio fixed, and the car sat there for a day, and they charged us 200, saying they "looked" at it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
