2004, 80K miles, Maxima SE 5-Speed automatic transmission problem.
The car's transmission gives severe bucking or jerking when shifting gears. This seems to intensify once the car has warmed-up, and especially when decelerating. It feels like the car jumps from 5th to 2nd gear. Nissan said it was the engine mounts, but after getting those replaced $$$ the problem was not resolved.
Lately the problem worsened, and we decided to replace the trans with a used one of a lot less mileage ($2K). This transmission has the same problem as well. We don't know what to do.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
