car that will last a long time with very little problems

This '09 Maxima was built in Sept 2008, and I bought it new. This car has the smoothest brakes I have found in over 65 years of driving. Still has original pads, original tires approaching 40K miles. Rotated tires twice, no balancing or realignment ever necessary. Tires wearing evenly, ride is smooth well over 80 MPH. I had internal antenna (intelligent key system) replaced at 30K miles, but no other repairs necessary. I did step up to a more powerful battery at 35K miles, but the OEM battery never gave me any trouble. This has been the most reliable car I have ever owned.

I Own this Nissan Maxima 2005 for approximately 9 years and I give it veryhigh marks for its road ability, although I am not that impressed with the turning radius uses too much space to make a u turn, and therideis is veryhard. The gas mileage is satisfactory. But as far as repairs the only thing I had to replace was a cam shafsensor andtwofront strutsthat due to hitting a very large pothole.

It is incredibly reliable and durable

Great engine, gets good reviews. Fit and finish is very good, even for this older car. No squeaks or rattles.
2002 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
I Beat the Hell out of the thing day in and day out. I take corners as fast as I can then pin the throttle out of the whole and the car never falters. This thing really takes a beating every day from me with no questions asked.
2002 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
It has far fewer problems than the Taurus and is predicted to age with more grace than the 4th generation Tauruses could ever hope to achieve.
