Hi I own a 1998 Nissan Maxima QX 2.0 auto in British racing green, I purchased it in 2003 second hand for £4,900. After getting used to the automatic gear box, which has sports mode, over drive, and a snow gear for if and when the weather is bad I began to appreciate the real sense of comfort that goes with the car. The electric front seats that adjust to suit your requirements and also the heated front seats, that I have only used on one occasion when it was particularly cold one morning. Since owning the Maxima QX I have had no major repairs to do to the car, it uses hardly any engine oil or water. The QX has superior comfort and style combined into a family sized car that's reasonably cheap and economical to run. The automatic has a kick down that will leave you gasping when used to overtake or get out of the way of something quickly.
The car has a sun roof and also air conditioning, the only drawback I would say about the Maxima QX is that if only they had put in a cruse control it would have made all the difference, especially to me as I do lots of motorway driving.
As for my overall opinion on the Maxima QX I think it has a reliable 24 valve engine that purrs at idle and murmurs seductively when driven, the quiet and calming atmosphere when you drive the Maxima is second to none and I have driven a lot of cars from Mini's to Jaguar's. Safety is a must, and Nissan haven't skimped on safety, the air bags for both the driver and passenger provide that extra bit of assurance along with the superb road handling and power steering.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Maxima QX to anyone who wants the luxury without the extravagant price tag.
