Year 2005 was poorly designed, as evidenced by all the major problems
My transmission went out at 76,000 miles. I can't believe it!! Luckily I purchased an extended warranty.
The mechanic at the Nissan dealer tried to tell me my warranty may not be honored, because I have 20 inch rims on my car. The mechanic stated to me that large rims cause a strain on the transmission. When I purchased the car, it had 18 inch rims on it. Go figure!!! Surely a 2 inch difference wouldn't cause a strain on a transmission.
This 2005 Maxima has given me nothing but trouble. Last year I had to have the fuel pump replaced. The mechanics at Nissan are not very accommodating when there is a warranty involved on a big job. I say if you don't want to honor your warranty, don't sell them.
I will never buy another Nissan after this experience. They are not very accommodating.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
