    2002 Nissan Sentra - GXE (M5)

    Pros: The whole interior - it looks and feels like a much nicer car than the price indicates

    Cons: Some of the exterior styling isn't as modern looking as the other cars I looked at

    Advice: Definitely get it, but don't get radium like I did! Get a pretty color!

    This vehicle is an excellent choice if you are in the market for a small sedan. The interior styling is great, you get loads of features, and for much less than some other cars with very cheap looking interiors and half the features. My car has been nothing but reliable so far, and from what I know of Nissan, I expect nothing less in the future. I highly recommend it!

    2002 Nissan Maxima - GLE (A4)

    Pros: 3.5 L 255 hp engine

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: It doesn't do justice unless you get the fully loaded Maxima.

    I have owned two Maxima's before, a 1987 and a 1991. Both were excellent cars. I test drove the 2002 and fell in love. Nissan was loosing it's touch from 1995-2001, I still loved Nissan's but something was gone. They have found their way again with the totally redesigned Altima the 3.5 VQ engine in their line-up. The Pathfinder is better than ever, Sentra Spec, the new Z car and best of all the fully loaded most powerful Maxima ever.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 S (M5)

    Pros: Great combination of power and economy

    Cons: firm suspension doesn't soak up bumps as well as some other cars

    Advice: Be sure to test drive this vehicle before choosing another car.

    Looks great. Handles and corners well. Plenty of power from the 175 hp 4 cyl. engine. Reasonably quiet. Smooth transmission shifts. Lots of standard equipment. Very good milage.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 S (M5)

    Pros: The roominess and the appearance.

    Cons: The dashboard needs improvement and noisy in the freeway.

    Advice: The Maxima is still the way to go.

    The appearance of the car is definitely beautiful. When you drive it, you can feel the power when you shift to 3rd gear but the car feels light. There's a strange noise on the left hand side of the dashboard like a heater fan when the car is off. The noise level on the freeway is high.

    2002 Nissan Maxima - SE (M6)

    Pros: Engine

    Cons: Real Taillights

    Advice: The Maxima won't fail you.

    I love this car! It is comfortable, roomy, safe and exciting! Incredible bargain! Beats the Camry & Accord without a problem. I still haven't been able to figure out why the Maxima doesn't outsell its class.
