2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Bought my 2004 maxima with just above 100,000 miles 2 and a half years ago,
have 125,000 miles on it now. It's a pretty fast car, rides comfortably at high speeds, and has really good stock speakers.
But, it has had way too many problems. Power steering pump died on me, tensioners on the chain broke, both cam shaft sensors died and would cut all power to the car when moving, sunroof won't open, the climate controls won't work, including the defrosters, which isn't fun in the winter. CD player doesn't work. I feel the transmission shifting heavy now, which isn't good at all. This car has turned me off to nissan, I will probably end up getting a different vehicle in the immediate future.
