I have a 2000 Maxima Se. I used Irotors Crossed Drilled and Slotted Rotors. They were $139 plus $40 shipping total of $179 for all four Rotors. They work great stop very quick. However, if you get them, dont use the original brake pads from Nissan. I have not upgraded to High Performance Brake pads yet but am planning on. The Rotors from IRotors.com are great. How are your Hawk Break Pads working? I might change to them.

i was also thinking irotors when i was replacing my 2000 maxima oem rotors a year ago but from what i found out, you can't resurface slotted or drilled rotors...
is this true for you??

You cant resurface the crossed drilled and Slotted rotors but the rotors from Irotors are very good and as long as you get good brake pads (Performance pads) to go along, you should be good for a few years. Resurfacing on a 2000 max is not that great anyhow, thats why I went with Irotors.\
What kind of Brake Pads are you using?

Any idea what's a reasonable cost to replace 95 Maxima clutch? Local Nissan dealership is asking for $925. The car has about 109K miles. Thanks.

OEM 215s are sometimes not easy to find. We've been running 205s for the summer tires for a couple years now for this very reason, no problems whatsoever. Just make sure the weight rating for the tire is high enough to support the car.

#8920 of 8981 Maxima engine swap 3.0 to 3.5
Nov 24, 2006 (10:56 am)
I know this is kind of off the subject, but I can't find any related topics. I have a 99 Maxima SE with the 190hp 3.0 and auto trans. I would love to upgrade to the 3.5 265hp engine and trans. that newer model Altimas and Maximas came with. I know I'll need all electronics from donor car, and was wondering if anyone has done this swap.
#8921 of 8981 2001 vs 2002 Maxima Fuel Required
Nov 27, 2006 (8:08 pm)
I am looking at buying a used 2001 (3.0 L) versus 2002 (3.5L) but I am concerned with 2 things:
1. do both 2001 & 2002 require premium gas?
2. in real world, how does mpg compare between the two engines both with auto (would love the 5sp but wife is does want to mess with clutch)?
any info helpful...

2. For my '01 I get 27 mpg highway, 23-24 city -- down to 22 in the winter.
The '01 is so smooth and powerful, I can't imagine why one would need even more!
