2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Took 3 tries to get SES (check engine light) to stay off (bad evaporative purge solenoid?). The driver's seat pops/clicks when turning left, the driver's door has an intermittent rattle, the steering wheel shimmys when stopping hard and fast (front rotors?), a fastener is missing from the plastic motor undertray, and the rear engine mount creaks when starting out (had it up on a lift when trailer hitch was installed - found the creak location with a stethoscope). Mileage markedly worse than '03 I traded in. CVT has not won me over yet. Back to the dealer again today. Lastly, incredibly cheesy and cheap feeling door handles. Yikes!
Bose, Bluetooth, dash, huge trunk.
Fix abysmal quality! Ditch the CVT for a good 5 or 6 speed automatic
