I bought my Nissan Maxima new in 1999 and it is still a quality reliable car even with 117,000 miles on it. It has held up well and I have had few problems with it over the last 11years. The paint still looks almost like new, the interior has held up remarkably well, the ride is comfortable with no squeeks or rattles and the engine still runs smoothly with plenty of power. I would recommend the Maxima to anyone who wants to listen.
