We purchased the 03 TL to replace our Maxima and things were fine for exactly 50,000 miles. The transmission (auto) went out at warranty, but was replaced at no charge. The second transmission lasted 1500 miles and went out when we were in a remote rural area. Now on the third tranny and fingers are crossed. Hate to trade in a car that is already paid off, but we really don't trust it anymore. Looks great and very nice ride on the Michelins.
Engine is perfect, seating very nice, and sound system is above average. Huge trunk for a sedan. Nice looking ride in red!
Transmission problems. More rattles than a $30,000 car should have.
