2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
I recently passed the 100K mark on the odometer and the problems have begun :( Randomly driving one night it felt like I was not going to stop while braking, it turns out Nissan diagnosed the ABS actuator pump as "bad". $ 2200 to fix, I had just put brand new front and rear brakes, new tires x 4, and a new battery. I have taken very good care maintenance wise, and Nissan will not work with me at all. Disappointed with the car? No- I am however very displeased with Nissan and not being willing to help me despite the technical service bulletins on NUMEROUS 2005 Maxima ABS actuator pumps :( Also have have both fog lights and head lights replaced at least 3-4 times each light!!!
I LOVE the car! But it seems to have a few flaws. Design wise it is very sexy, and sophisticated.
Improve the weld on the catalytic converter so it quits breaking!!! And fix the problem with the ABS actuator pump. Then the car just may very well be perfect :)
