2005 Nissan Maxima LX 3.5 from North America
As my children put it, POC
My transmission is shot. It began going at 85000. The hard shift and slips in 2nd and 3rd have been gradually getting worse since 85000. The Nissan dealership found nothing. However, as I live 50 miles from the dealership, it began again on the way home. I was told to bring it back again. I was also told to call Nissan and see if they would cover the repairs. I was also told that they were aware of the problem and had had to repair the same issues as I was having with the same model. And, I was lastly told by a Nissan rep that they had no idea of this problem. Somehow, I am having difficulty with that statement.
When it runs, the car is comfortable and suits my lifestyle of single parent of three - and two grandchildren. However, I do not transport my precious cargo in this vehicle as it is unreliable which is really cramping my life. I can't even go visit my new grandson!
Will I ever own another? Not in this lifetime.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
