2002 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
For a large car with a relatively large engine, this engine is mirror smooth which helps it get great highway mileage. see full Nissan Maxima review

6-speed manual FWD
I consistently get 25 in the city, and 33-34 all highway. Excellent fuel economy for any car, let alone one with a 3.5L V6. see full Nissan Maxima review
2001 Nissan Maxima Real Gas Mileage: Cons

This car loves to suck gas especially when pushed. And not just any gas, the high compression VQ35DE engine requires premium. In my experiences anything less than 91 octane will yield poor performance and odd engine noises. I average 17-18 mpg at best. see full Nissan Maxima review
