    Big engines, but poor interior build and lackluster manual gearbox. :sad2:

    And its the Altima with the questionable interior. The rest of them are just OK.

    Everyone knows Toyota is the Japanese Ford. They copy their product line exactly.

    Most of the original problems (loose center console, etc.) were fixed halfway through the 2002 model year. People still want to harp on them however.

    By adding more silver trim doesn't fix the fact that the dash feels and looks cheap. And the new Maxima's interior looks like a downgrade design from the 2003 and before. :ugh:

    I hope you have an older Maxima. Those are nice. The new one looks like shit.

    I feel the opposite way about it.

    Opinions are like assholes, I guess.

    IMPOSSIBLE, YOU HAVE TO LIKE THE OLDER ONE BETTER!:slap:


    Which is odd, because everyone hated them when they came out too, now everyone loves them.

    :o

    I would rather have an 04... but my other choice would be a G35 which I am getting when I trade the maxima in

    But after a year I still love my 03

    I like it because it's my car. But really, it's not the quality that's so bad, but the design, although I would much prefer the old vinyl to the new plastic.

    I do, but I also realise that Toyota has better build quality and Honda's Accord has a better interior.

    I like Nissan's but am not a Nazi. Nissan owns the 15-35K market with the VQ, but I also realise that a car is more than its engine.
