I love my car, but I can't keep dumping money into it every pay. First the alternator went. Two weeks later the distributor cap busted, and two weeks after that, I had to replace the pugs and wires. Today I put on a fuel filter and it still hesitates. When it runs, it runs well.

I have two 1989 Maximas... I have loved them that much! One with 168,000 the other with 215,000 as of September 2003. Yes the Bose systems went out on both... so what, went to Best Buy and put in a new better sounding system with CD for under $300.00 each. Yes, I just lost the belt on my rear window of the 215,000 car. Should not be a big deal. Both have original suspensions, the 215,000 has original exhaust! Have only replaced brakes, timing belts, and clutches plus slave cylinders in both! Both get between 27 and 30 mpg with regular gas on the highway! Both still have strong torquey V6s that will run with the best to over 100 mph. Yes, I'm not afraid to run either for a long distance trip or up to 115mph. The secret to keeping a car is maintenance, plus on bigger items, find a good mechanic who you can trust. One that won't sabotage the car to keep it coming back, or to get you to buy a new Maxima! Oh yes, I'm 46 and a trained professional race car driver. I drive both hard, but not stupid.

Hey you know what I have a '90 Maxima and mine hasn't given me any trouble, and it is my first car, so I guess I got a good deal with mine because I have kept up with it since I got it. I bought it for $500 and it was the best investment I have ever made.

Does anyone know how to fix a busted headlight on a 1993 Nissan Maxima? I've had it since '07. I got in a wreck on the right side & now the headlight & the fender are damaged. Does anyone know how to fix this? Plus my headlight switch don't work on dim, only on bright.
