2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have a 2006 Maxima w/ 104K miles that is having the same jerking issues. In Aug 2011, the car lurched and jumped so bad in traffic while slowing down. It also happens whenever I am pulling
from a stop light or reversing. This issue continued and sometime I have to stop the car because I thought I was going to get into an accident. Since this appears after the car is driven for about 15 minutes, I will let the car sit for a while before I drive it again. It will drive fine for a few
miles and start lurching again.

I took the car to our local Nissan dealer and needed to pay $105 for an inspection. I tried to tell them the prob. but they acted they didnt what i was saying! Dont buy Nissan


Worst Features

The WHOLE transmission for gods sakes. Nissan KNOWS the problem but doesn't want to fix it!

Review

I have a 2006 Nissian Maxima and Ive been had this car for about 4 years now, I start experiencing problems with it last year after my warranty was up. First of all the AC went out and begun to blow hot air and costed me over $300 to get fixed then about January when I reached about 72,000 miles my car began to Jerk and take about 4-5 seconds to go into drive,reverse,etc. So I took it to the Nissan dealer and had them do a dianostic check about 3 times and they told me nothing was wrong so I got my transmission serviced around March and the jerking stopped and now it has started back and now my transmission has gone out and is costing me about $3,000 to get fixed. POOR QUALITY IM UPSET!!!!

Review

We purchased our 2006 Maxima with about 60K miles on it and has been a dream. The car drives amazing, has plenty of luxury features and proves to be a good sedan. A few reviews have noted issues but those seem relatively normal for a vehicle with 100K miles or more. I will say this, the vehicle is Nissan's flagship so it will cost you more to operate. Premium sedans require premium maintenance. Chances are if you complain about the cost of repair, you probably cannot afford this vehicle. Whenever you have a performance vehicle, you will likely put it to the test thus be prepared to service it as you would any other sports car. We personally have had no repair issues other than normal items.

Review

I bought my 2006 Maxima slightly used in late 2006 with 15k miles on it.
Everything was great for the first couple of years.
Did go through two sets of tires though.
At 72k miles the A/C began blowing hot air.
A couple of months later, the transmission went out (hard shift between gears).
A couple months after that a fuel leak and cracked motor mounts.
The good news is I'm now at 80k and am just replacing the brakes.
There is also a hollow metal sound coming from the car.
Fortunately I bought a great extended warranty (that expires in Nov.) that has picked up everything but the A/C.
Come Dec. I will likely get rid of the car since it's too expensive to repair.
