2004 Maxima SE
 
Anyone ever drive one of these? Or know anyone that has one. Its on my short list for a new/used car. And I'd like some feedback on how this redesigned Max performs.

2003 and early is not an option.

Thanks!

i drove one
i dont think it was an se i think it was the next model fully loaded
i dont car for the foriegn jobs but it was nice and peppy
wasnt as quick as an l67 as for daily driving
fun in the snow though :twisted:

For 04+ I think the SE is the king of the can in the Max lineup.

If I could find a got dang GXP somewhere with less then 100 000 kms we wouldnt be discussing this Nissan.

The 3.5 Nissan engine has been included in Ward's top 10 engines for several years.

I assume that's the engine this one has? They're no slouch and pretty reliable.

Yea, it does have the 3.5.

thats a lie.

I have driven one once. I can not stand the interior compared to the 03.

The SE and SL models are eessentailly the same, however SL could come with NAV, and SE could come with a 6-speed, other than that all options are the same (SE came with spoiler base) and they have different wheels and chrome time packages.

It is a great car, great performer, great resale value. An A+ used car

Yea, both interiors don't rev me up all that much, but I do prefer the styling of the 04+ over the 03. But thats personal preference.

The drivetrain is my concern and I think the 3.5 is probably one of the best out there.

Wow...there are CONSTANTLY GXPs with less than 62,000 miles here. Is getting one in the US an option? Bonnies do have the mph to kmh button.
