2011 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

BUYER BEWARE!!! Have a 2011 Nisaan Maxima SV. I've read the reviews and seems I'm not the only one. I just hit 88000 miles and transmission went out without any warranty. Contacted Nissan and was told if I would have had a 2010 or older I would have extended warranty from Nissan to cover it. What do they think their problems just stopped after 2010? I've read hundreds of reviews on multiple sites and all say the same thing. These transmission they put in these cars are junk. DO NOT BUY A NIISAN PRODUCT. That's the best advice somebody can give that you should heed

I purchased a 2011 Maxima paid 42,000 dollars said to myself I am going to follow the warranty maintenance so it would last me a lifetime I have had nothing but problems with this car in 6 years. So far I purchased 3 batteries had the sway bar replaced, Idle sensor, the spring broke in half the service manager said I have never seen this before struts, lower control arm front windshield cracked in half my first year of having the car had the brakes replace every year the car has been terrible suspension had the car aligned 6 times the sad part is it only has 60.000 miles.

Maximas are gems. Hard to see backing up with no rear view camera though.

Review

I have a 2011 Nissan Maxima which I bought brand new in November 2010. The CVT transmission shut down while driving! The car has only 53,146 miles and no other mechanical problems. I found out Nissan extended warranties on 2007-2010 select vehicles including the Maxima due to CVT transmission problems. My car was towed to Nissan early Monday morning. I was given a toll free number to corporate office for possible assistance on Tuesday and they kept my car through Friday before coming back to tell me they would not be assisting me. I asked what criteria was used to make that determination. The agent stated the same info I had given them on Tuesday morning, i.e., how many miles are on the vehicle, the warranty, etc. They had no intention of assisting. What a waste! It is all about the dollar. The car is cosmetic, just looks good, that's it! She said it was 15 months outside of warranty when in fact I bought an extended 6 year/100000 mile warranty from Nissan when I bought the car. The warranty expired 3 months ago in November 2016. They stated they did not see the warranty in their system and it must have been an outside warranty sold to me by Nissan. All CVT transmission cars should be recalled. It is like a ticking time bomb. They are waiting for something drastic to happen before being forced to recall. What a waste!
