I've owned my 2002 Maxima GLE for about 3 years now. Wonderful car with sporty sedan looks and impressive V6 power. Overall, the car's been reliable but it will nickel and dime you with occassional costly repairs. Then again, it's a nearly 15-year old car now so annual repair of something is to be expected. Engine and tranny are solid. Usual issues with these Maximas are related to emissions sensors that will throw check engine lights, the MAF (mass air flow) is also an expected costly repair with this generation of Maxima, and expect a lot of suspension-related repairs at around the 100K mark, if not before. But with proper maintenance many Maxima owners report 200K or near that on their engine/tranny before any major issues.
