    SOLD!!!!!








    Thank you for your interest in purchasing this vehicle. In the interest of full disclosure (some may argue that I don't need to do this)...here is a thorough break down of the car:

    *** NOTE: If you don't like my prices, don't bother commenting in this thread. No low ballers. I am not selling this car for bluebook because 95% of the cars on the used car market have NO HISTORY provided with them other than a simple Carfax. The condition of this car, for being 11yrs old and spending it's entire life in the salt country that is New York, is pretty damn good. If you can't appreciate this, then this car is not for you. ***

    Make: Nissan

    Model: Maxima SE

    Mileage: 101,5xx on original motor and transmission

    Price: $4,500 negotiable - see below information regarding pricing, etc.

    Inspection: Inspected Until 12/10

    Options: Tan Heated Leather, Leather Steering Wheel, Power Everything, see below for more information, etc.

    Book Value: $4,800 - KBB Guide

    Accidents: None

    Title: Clean

    Paperwork Available: Yes, all receipts from November 2006 available (all parts, inspections, and maintenance records since the car had 26,004 miles). I also have a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet with a break down of oil changes, filter changes, spark plug changes, PCV valve changes, gasket changes, etc. and the mileage at which that change took place. EVERYTHING I have done is documented.

    Here is a link to the Excel file (you must have Excel installed on your PC):

    Other Information:

    I purchased this car on November 16th, 2006 in a town outside of Syracuse, NY from the original owners, who were an older couple. The car was primarily driven by the wife, and as she was a stay at home mom, the car had 26,004 miles the day I purchased it. The car currently just passed the 101,000 mile mark. It has been primarily driven on country roads and on highways (most of my driving is done above 40mph) so there is very little city miles on this car. The car has been absolutely babied. Since I got it, it had completed an application of Auto-Rx (which allows for a switch to synthetic oil safely), has been using AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic motor oil, and the coolant was flushed and replaced with Toyota's OEM coolant (which is one of the best out there as it has no unnecessary silicates among other things). The tranmission fluid was also drained and refilled and the pan was dropped and cleaned (magnets, filter, etc.). The car is originally california emissions equipped. However, the car has federal emissions stock headers, federal emissions stock y-pipe, stainless steel high-flow catalytic converter (Magnaflow), stainless steel b-pipe (Budget Inc.) installed, and a newer (2 month old) OEM 4th Gen. muffler. This means it will not rust through, resulting in an exhaust system that will last a very long time. The noise level as compared to factory exhaust is hardly changed and most people will not notice the difference. This also means that a O2 simulator is wired up in the car so the ECU doesn't light a CEL for the fact that the Cali Spec. headers/y-pipe aren't present (more O2 sensors).

    *** ALL of the work was done by ME on my own personal lift. I have NEVER been to the dealer for this car. ***

    Recent Maintenance (see Excel Spreadsheet):
    • Knock Sensor
    • New Rear Valve Cover Gasket
    • New Gaskets between engine and headers
    • New Gaskets between headers and y-pipe
    • New O2 sensors (the one located near the intake manifold and one near the radiator)
    • New O2 Simulator (used to run the O2 sensors that were removed when going from Cali. Spec piping to Fed. Spec piping)
    • New Fuel Filter
    • Coolant drain/fill
    • New Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
    • New Alternator
    • New Optima Red Top Battery
    • Fuel straps for the fuel tank replaced due to rust (and one breaking)
    • Sway Bar End Links were both replaced
    • New OEM Muffler
    • New Brake Pads, Rotors, and Calipers

    Issues:
    • The spoiler has a spot where the clear coat is peeling. It's about the size of your thumb.
    • The car has a few light scratches and nicks due to it's 11 years out exposed to the elements.
    • The CEL is on for P1440 (EVAP Small Leak), P0160 (O2 Sensor voltage), and P0140 (O2 Sensor voltage).
    • There is a suspension knock when going over bumps or pulling the wheel from side to side (when parked). Most likely tie rods. Sway Bar End Links and bushing were just replaced in an attempt to fix this issue and so was the passenger side control arm/ball joint.

    Pricing (what's included in the $4,800):
    • Infinity Speakers (no sub or amp included - sold separately)
    • Front and Rear strut bars stay on the car
    • Tokico Illumina Struts and H&R Springs stay on the car
    • 16" Stock SE wheels (with 215/55/16 Dunlop Winter Sport 3D's that are only 5k old) are included.


    I think that is all that there is to say about the car. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

    Also, I have a bunch of spare Maxima parts I will throw in for free (maybe someone can have better luck selling them or use for them) and I also have a 2nd set of floor mats that could be used for the summer months (the mats in the car are a bit dirty due to many winters).

    I can be contacted via PM and I check them many times a day so expect a timely reply.

    Thank you for your interest.
