2000 Nissan Maxima SE from Australia and New Zealand
Air compression unit.
Leather seats wearing badly.
Check engine light comes on and off on its own.
Loud popping noise from the front end.
Both U joints had to be replaced on the front end.
I was very disappointed in this vehicle. I am the second owner of this car. After having the car for 3 months, I had to have the air compression unit replaced, which cost me 350.00. Then the alternator went out the following month, which cost 750.00.
I had the vehicle out of the shop for 1 day after having the starter and u-joints replaced at a cost of 600.00, and the check engine light is on, along with a loud popping noise from the front end.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This car is front wheel drive. It doesn't have universal joints. Those are a part of the driveline on a rear-wheel drive car. A front wheel car has constant velocity (CV) joints. If someone sold you universal joints, I would go back to the shop with a pointed stick to demand your money back.
