2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Worse car I've ever owned. Paint is fading, chrome is chipping off the front grill, I've only owned this car for about 12 days, and already had to replace the clutch(which din't help with fading or going to the floor), water pump, radiator, hose, and head gasket. I had the car inspected 2nd day I had it and I was told it was flawless. Performance is poor, there's no such thing like fuel economy in this car, no oil leak but still have to add oil every week, replaced two rear tires already, one of the rims bent already...Do I need to say more?
Worse car I've ever owned in my life.
I wish I can take Nissan to court for these faulty factory defects
Better Cd player, better performance parts, longer lasting materials...just change everything about this car.
Hi I have an 2004 Maxima as well.
I think that your expectations might be a little bit high on the car.
It is a soon to be 9 year old car.
And you mentioned that the paint is fading.
Do you know if has ever been waxed?
Chrome is chipping off the grill, sure they all do that when they have a clear coat finish.
Did you not notice those things when you purchased it????
The clutch went bad in 12 days?
Where there any signs of it being mushy?
All the other items you listed are still working fine on mine and it has 130k on it.
I think you might have been sold a car that was not well maintained.
That is not really Nissan's fault.
I plan on keeping mine for a long time.
