2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought my max new. Added billet grille & chrome wheels. So exciting! Major oil leak. Maintained by dealer exclusively (oil changed every 5,000 miles). At 105,000 the dealer recommended 10-30wt oil to muffle tapping noise in engine. Are hood, roof & trunk made of aluminum? Material is different than metal fenders. Although car was detailed professionally, the paint has totally faded and worn through to metal on hood & roof. Rest of ext is still shiny black. Embarrassing! Gray contact paper surrounding instr cluster is bubbling. Center console cushion has fallen off twice. Moonroof doesn't close without playing w/ switch. Auto tilt wheel doesn't always lift/lower when door opens.

Favorite Features

love the styling, roominess, comfort, heated steering wheel, power ext mirrors, auto tilt/telescopic steering wheel & seat when door opens. 6 1/2 years after buying, i still judge other cars by my max!

Suggested Improvements

too late for this car.

Whenever you take a vehicle to a detailer you must make sure that they have a warranty on their detailing because it is very common for them to burn the clear-coat off of the vehicle. That's probably why your paint is fading and oxidating.
