Love it, BUT.......

2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I bought my 2005 Nissan Maxima SL with about 71000 miles on it, i now have 123000 on it. I LOVE the car and how it drives and looks. It has plenty of power. But, my transmission is slowly dieing on me. This is a common problem with these cars. I read the other day that, with these cars you have to change the transmission oil every 30,000 miles for it to last. I haven't decieded if i am going to get ride of it yet, or just replace the transmission. If i decide just to replace the transmission, i will make sure to change the transmission oil every 30,000 miles, if not earlier. I truely love everthing about this car.

Best Features

BOSE, POWER, and just the overall looks.

Worst Features

Nissan should have put a better transmission in these cars,
