2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

purchased my 2005 maxima on sept 2004, commuted every day from nj to queens, the commute was long but driving was enjoyable.in 2008 transmission was jerking, was told i needed a new transmission, had to buy a new one from nissan for $3,000 & the piece after the catylytic converter had to be replaced for another $800. car had 108k milesmy mechanic is a nissanmechanic, he told me these trans is not strong enuff for the engine, after 100k miles, th timing chain needs to be replaced, & the gaskets in engine start leaking esp, the one by oil filter. also replace valve cover gaskets, changed new tires, will ride this car to the ground since its paid off, had a good run with this car, will getnext

Favorite Features

fav feature, the handling & the power 265 hp.smooth driving

Suggested Improvements

get rid of bose system, they all break, OEM good year tires are horrible, terrible wet weather traction, nissans arent the only cars to have tranny problems, honda has it also, when they come out with these engines with close to 300 ho, sometimes the tranny cant handle the power, esp if engine & tranny are builtr in the US, cause infinitys do not have the same problems
