2004 Nissan Maxima SE V6 from North America
Can't afford to fix it, but can't fix it to afford me a ride to and from work!
Brakes have worn out twice already.
CD player died with my favorite CD in it 3 months into owning the car. Dealer wants $800 to replace the unit.
A/C control unit had to be replaced for over $600. Now it just blows out hot air all the time, even when it's off. And I live in Vegas!
Alternator belt fell off, leaving me stranded on the highway, during rush hour, in Las Vegas.
Car has been slipping, and slamming me forward while switching gears. Was told my motor mounts were out, and the mechanic wanted $600 to fix. Replaced the mounts for $400 and still have the same problem.
Now my car won't pass emissions, citing PO797 code for Pressure Control Solenoid "C" stuck ON, which means the valve has to be replaced for about $1300, on top of whatever it's going to cost me for either a new or rebuilt tranny.
I really liked the car when I first bought it. My first luxury car! Coming from a Dodge Neon, I thought I was stepping up a bit. I still like my car, but with all the problems I'm having and the costs I'm facing, I'm ready to turn my back on Nissan.
I have been sitting here reading all these comments from 2004, and can't understand why Nissan hasn't done anything that I know of as of yet? The dealers won't do anything to help, neither will the manufacturer or the dealerships.
Shame on Nissan for not stepping up to the plate. Yeah, Toyota may be doing what they're doing now cuz they got caught, and it's great advertisement regarding "owning" up to their problems, but I respect them more for it, and wouldn't mind owning one now!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
