when you replace the fog light, DO NOT touch the new bulb. that's why it burns out quickly. that or thr assembly has a small leak, and water is getting inside the fog light assembly.

What is difference between a gxe and gle Nissan Maxima?

In the US, there are three levels of the Nissan Maxima: The GXE, base model The GLE, luxury model The SE, sport model The SE 5 speeds are rare and highly desired. You can generally tell an SE, because it in the ONLY Maxima with the white gauges (seen here - ). The SE has a spoiler (sometimes a GLE has a spoiler as well), the SE comes with a Bose stereo (so does the GLE), the SE always has the power sunroof (sometimes the GLE does), the SE often has leather interior, the SE always has fog lights. I believe only the GLE has the chrome door handles. Hope this helps =) What is difference between a gxe and gle Nissan maxima?"
