Nissan Maxima 1998 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Maxima 1998 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Making a family choice

    THE Camry is a good choice. It's a reliable model and won't cost an arm and a leg to run. I would also consider the Nissan Maxima A32, which fits your budget, and don't forget the Mitsubishi Magna. You will get a later-model Magna for the same money.

  • Where's the air gone?

    I WOULD recommend you take it to Mark Lynch of Carcool Airconditioning (ph: 9532 0785). Mark reckons you could have a leak that needs to be rectified before it causes irreparable damage to the airconditioning compressor.
