2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
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
The WHOLE transmission for gods sakes. Nissan KNOWS the problem but doesn't want to fix it!
