Default Help me out!

I'm deciding on buying a 2004 maxima SL with 183,000 miles on it. I wanted to ask you guys if this car is reliable and wont have any problems later down the road.

I read that the transmission tends to go out . I think JDM GsR 515 owns a 6 spd maxima on the forum so he might know more than me . everything else sounds good about it besides the tranny problem

Never heard of vq motors burning oil, I only heard of the qr sentra/Altima motors because of the pre-cat failure . .

Lot of that body maximas and older muranos burn oil like crazy.The newer vq35de's have head gasket issues. And the qr24de has precat issues.
