    265HP and 255Torque
    1/4 mile low 15s
    0-60 6.7
    SE BASE starts at 27K
    SL BASE starts at 29K


    [​IMG]

    It was an 04 model with the 3.5L motor and auto tranny W/manual shift "push up to go up a gear down to shift down a gear "total 5 gears"

    the car over all felt really nice I do have to say it had one of the most funky ass ugly clear roofs ever! it was a 1' by 4' strip like a sunroof just really long and narrow also it did not open total UGLY

    [​IMG]

    the body of the new Maximas are total ASS ugly the inside however looked nice the dash layout was nice as with all the gauges it even kept track of miles on the oil so you can keep up with the oil changes as with tire rotation

    the Maxima also had Z looking wheels just smaller ones, powerseats built in radio contols on the wheel as with tons of other little neat things

    Power.... it felt really good however the Manual/auto shifting SUCKED I liked how you could upshift as with down shift but there was a 2-3 SEC delay!!!! so you shift up at 4K and it would end up shifting to the next gear around 5K bah! my 280ZXT shifted faster "1-2-D" then the new maxima

    so bottom line

    car inside was nice power felt great "when left in drive" but over all I would NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER....EVER OWN THIS CAR becuase of how UGLY it looks

    fucking ugly I mean I would rather have almost any other car looks wise ANYTHING ELSE

    total ugly car

    [​IMG]

    hard to see in this picture but the rear window DOES NOT SIT FLUSH its kinda like a old MR2 or other rear engine car it has as 2-3" lip between the rear window and side of the car it looks like shit! ok so not so much like a MR2 but it has an ugly ass gap on the rear and for NO REASON atlest none I could see other then to add to its ugly looks

    [​IMG]

    no longer does the car look like a sedan it has a ROUNDED rear


    [​IMG]

    would I buy this car over a civic HELL NO I can't stand civics anymore becuase of how cheap they are but this car looks so ugly in person it does have wonderful power but is power worth anything when the car its in looks like total shit? hell no
    I droped that sucker off as soon as I could damn friggin ugly ass mofo

    I could have saved you the time and told you that about the sunroof. Unfortunately, all the Nissans are starting to look alike...Why did you even bother driving one if you have the Z?

    why again are you on hondaswap? seems to me you like cars moreto you then your AVG a car is for going from point A to B kinda person

    Bah total BS

    if a car was only for going from point A to point B we would all be driving cars with ZERO mods unless tthat one mod was a hybrid swap for some batteries to better our MPG

    It seems to me that you like cars more then your average "a car is for going from point A to point B kind of person"

    I say that becuase you're on a car message board about modding cars

    That car looks like the ass end of Corky from "Life goes on".

    But then again, no one makes a truly "sexy" car anymore for under $40k.

    All that Maxima needs is a gaping vagina on the front like the Edsel.

    dude WRX/EVOs are boxes with power =)

    I don't know of any older people "25+" that like the looks of them they do however like the power and AWD but looks? ha

    you are just stuck on that car as with any american "sports" cars
    not quite sure why maybe you were raised that way but geez

    I would like an STI for a fun winter car as far as looks go I will stick with my Z or even a TL or A4 or or or... so many cars look better =)

    STI/EVO look mean but still a 4 door box with a big wing
