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