    4th Gen > 5th gen

    Faster, built better, handle better

    Also cost less these days.

    Whichever Maxima you buy, get a manual trans. No exceptions.

    It had a full independent rear suspension and Nissan had to cut some corners when they engineered the 5th gen because of their financial (in)stability. :o

    it bothered me that there were such significant changes each year of that body style. why not a 2001? or a 2002? they all hit that bottom depreciation fast enough.

    You have your generations mixed up.


    3rd gens had independent rear susp.
    4th gens are the ones with the rattly interiors and cut costs
    5th gens are superior in quality..

    mid to late 90s were the years Nissan had money issues cutting costs.. 5th gens + are better...


    as far as 4th gen vs. 5th gen thing..

    4th gens - 190 hp, 205 tq right around 3000 lbs.. under 7 sec. 0-60 with manual, 14.8ish in the 1/4 mile stock... shitty top end because of restrictive intake manifold.. (can be fixed with a variable one from the middle east maximas.. about 600 bucks and a pesky install)

    early 5th gens..
    00-01 222 hp, 217? lbft tq? about 200 lbs heavier than 4th gens.. superior quality interior.. a little slower off the line than 4th gens, but the difference is quite small and can be accounted for by driving skill.. still capable of same 1/4 mile numbers, maybe a bit worse.. but they have much better top end..

    late 5th gens..
    02-03 255 hp, 3.5 VQ, HIDs standard, navi optional, nicer seats, 6 speed manual, 14.2-14.4ish 1/4 mile times.. i believe they tested it under 6 sec. 0-60...
