Soooo Disappointed
By jc5053 on


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


1st thing first,....I bought this car brand new and had no problems UNTIL my 4th year (2010). The AC unit went out ($897),....HID lights turned pink and went out ($426) and now........(infamous drumroll),..........the transmission is bad, LOL! No, its not funny at all and my head is still spinning to the tune of $2500 repair bill that was freshly printed today. WOW is all I can say. On my way back from the shop,..this guy in traffic asked me if the car was good (as he's picking one up this week), I told him "nah man this car is a piece of junk, DON'T DO IT! 111k miles, 13 more payments and transmission problems are all I have to show for this car!

Best Features

BOSE Radio, Bluetooth, HID's, very strong engine and very responsive.

Worst Features

All I want Nissan to do is to own up to all of these transmission issues. I am embarrassed to say that I own a Nissan Maxima,........why when this is the flagship car???

Wow. I've had all the same problems (with the expection of the HID lights). I agree that this is a piece of junk! (My transmission bill was #3500 though).
