2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I absolutely will never, ever buy Nissan products again. The issues with this car are innumerable but I'll try and include them in order of decreasing cost to fix: New transmission (other complaints on this site) @ 70K miles, new paint job due to defective black paint that lasted only 3 years, new front struts at 65K miles, new front bearings @ 60K miles, front wheel shimmy is recurring issue since day 1, front headlamps are not clear due to sun after 4 years. The front turning radius is that of an 18-wheeler.
It looks nice on the showroom floor. Just don't drive it off the showroom floor.
Nissan does not stand behind their vehicles. Nissan needs a reliability improvement program. Transmission, paint, suspension. The design team should be embarrassed. The quality is awful.
