2002 Nissan Maxima SE 3.5 V6 from North America
Decent car, but NOT at the price point or position in the market
Service Engine Soon indicator: 5 times
Vent control valve: 4 times!!!
Oxygen sensor: 1 time
Front bearing: 2 times
Brake rotors: 2 times due to rust
Power seat adjustment squealing.
Excessive problems with vent control valve causing "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" indicator. Other problems can be expected. Nissan has a problem with their vent control valve part and fails to recognize this. The car is otherwise decent, but we thought we were buying a better car than the Acura TL at the time...now, I'm not so sure. Nissan Canada and the local dealer does not care unless you have extended warranty. Parts that are supposed to last the lifetime of the car failing at at a rate of just over a year? You be the judge.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
