2004 Nissan Maxima SL 3.5
Hated it! Poor customer service! Don't buy!
Hard shift and slipping transmission at 34K, 50k and dealership told me nothing wrong. At 62K, it was scary. Took it back to them and they said yep, there's a problem, $3,800 please. Nissan knows they have a problem with the 2004 tranny. I wrote to Consumer Affairs and provided my records of 3 trans fluid changes PLUS my receipts for when I complained about it well under warranty and they said "sorry, can't help". (Actually the person who wrote the letter from C.Affairs, had about 6 typos in her letter and even misspelled her own name.) They've got some idiots working for them or they are training them that way! NEVER buy another Nissan!
The car was by far one of my favorite cars before Nissan didn't back their product. You should get 62K miles out of a car before you have to change a tranny! You couldn't GIVE me another Nissan. And my car was molly coddled.. still looks new too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
