Disappointing and expensive
Transmission would hard shift around second gear. Started on and off in Sept 2010 and would not do it all the time. Had it checked out; fluid, screen filter, all good. Problem seemed to be happening more frequently and I felt unsafe. Took it to Nissan, and days later picked car up with a rebuilt transmission and $3,400 poorer. According to what I've researched, the transmissions for 2005 Maxima should have been recalled.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
