I'm new to the forums but I'm a very satisfied Nissan owner. I currently own a 2002 Nissan Altima and I've had a Nissan Maxima ('99-old body style). Anyway, my question for the group is this: I have an opportunity to purchase a 2004 Maxima or a 2004 Volvo S60. Both have leather and all the amenities. I love my experience with Nissans but I can get a great deal from a good friend on the Volvo ($20,000 with only 7,300 mi. on it). He has to sell it to get a larger car. He just got it last May for $30,000 but found out he and his wife are having their third child and all three won't be able to fit in the Volvo. The dealership is only willing to give him $20,000 for it on a trade in and he said he'd rather sell it to a friend for the same amount. Is the Maxima still as good a car as I remember? Better, perhaps, than the Volvo? Thanks for the info.
