Don't Buy a 2004 Nissan Maxima
By mortega1 on


2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


In 2007 I began to notice that the “chrome finish” on the front grill was beginning to peel off.
This was also beginning to happen on the “chrome” accents that are embedded on the roof of the vehicle. In late 2008 the power window motor located in the driver’s door began to malfunction and now it is not functional at all.
In 2009, the power door locks located on the driver’s side (front and rear doors) also began to malfunction.
Power to the steering wheel column and the drivers seat have now also failed.
I have also experienced issues with the air conditioning system and I have had several leaks in the o-rings that have been addressed several times.
Do not purchase a Nissan product!!

The first several years of ownership were good. The ride and performance was outstanding. The Bose stereo system is above average.

The electrical system of this vehicle is faulty. Searches on the internet reveal other Nissan owners complaining of issue related to the electrical systems of this vehicle.
