2004 Nissan Maxima SL 3.5
Very poorly manufactured
The steering wheel shimmy's when reaching speeds of 50 mph and higher.
The trunk leaks.
The right passenger door panel vibrates when listening to music.
Multiple attempts to fix with no success.
Poorly manufactured. Considering lemmon law and writing to the President and CEO.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You're going to write to the president because you blew your speakers and your trunk leaks?

I believe he or she meant the President of the Nissan Corp.

It's a bloody pity to see that the '04's have so many manufacturing problems, but I'd still like to see how they hold up. I don't think that this particular case constitutes as a lemon, but it's got problems that should be fixed under warranty and you should be able to return it for full price, but don't expect a recall to happen.

2004 was the redesigned model. Don't you know you never buy a first of anything, not until they work out all the glitches.

I have a 2004...the only problem I found was an issue w/ the moonroof at 600 miles... and now I have 60,000 miles= no problems reported. Same Driver! Same Car! Same Power!

I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima with 137000 miles on it and it runs beautiful, I had a mechanic look at it and everything is solid, no rust, and a lot of new parts on it.. I'll never go with anything other than a Nissan.. all the way.. Good strong motors.
