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


After owning 5 Maximas (1990, 1991, 2001, 2003, and 2006) I am sadly looking in other directions. I have loved every aspect of the previous models but the 2006 has put me off. My favorite aspect of the Maxima was the joy in driving it. It's fast and responsive and fun to drive. Unfortunately, the build quality of the '06 is very poor. I had to replace tires at 36000 miles, battery at 46000, brakes and rotors at 50,000, headlight ($285) at 51000, and the top of the adjustable arm rest came off which the dealer wanted $485 to replace. All of these problems are common as I have a friend who also owns an 06 and has had similar repairs.

Best Features

Handling and quickness. Fun to drive!

Worst Features

It is my opinion that Nissan has downgraded it's components supporting one of the best engines in the biz! My 03 and 90 (which I still own) have had fewer problems combined than my 06!
