2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Everything was great til 50k miles. I'm at 62k now and within the past year I had the transmission replaced twice (common jerking problem between 1st and 2nd gear), the AC works whenever it feels like it, window defroster takes forever to defrost, Cd changer keeps skipping, the telescopic steering wheel is wobbling. Recently my ABS started to come on everytime I press the brakes, and the ABS pump stays on constantly. From the reviews I've read it looks like another $2000 job to fix... oh, and did I mention I need new motormounts? Yeah, I was told that happens when they replace your transmission... All these issues and no recalls, only service bulletins...
Heated steering wheel is great in the winter
Use Toyota as an example and issue some recalls!!! Transmission is made for a 2.5L engine and it can't handle a 3.5L...
