I am purchasing a 95 nissan maxima. When going to test drive the key turned but the car did not start. Nothing happened.
When the owner brought the key she regularly uses and tried to start it, it did after a few times turning the key.
We were told to hold down the brake and turn the key faster in order to get it to recognize the key and start. We did not have much luck, but it did start once or twice for us.
The question is, is this a quirk of the maxima or is this a problem that may be more serious for us later. What type of problem could it be and would it be costly to repair.
The information to this question can help us decide whether or not to buy the car.
Incidently, the mecanic who regularly services it thinks it is a great car. It has been well maintained and taken care of.
