#2404 of 4182 '02 Maxima CD Changer; Paint Chips problems
Mar 30, 2005 (10:57 am)
I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima and the Bose Stereo system with a 6 cd changer. TWICE the speakers on the left side stopped working when a cd was playing. It was the cd changer so it was replaced twice. Well, this third unit is doing it AGAIN! I have 40K miles and it's more than 1 year since the last cd player replacement so Nissan is REFUSING TO REPLACE THE UNIT. It also scratches my cds! I have an extended warranty but it does not cover the cd changer. Did you know they used re-manufactored cd players as replacement parts! Don't even get me started on the paint chip problems. This car has the worst paint job since the '79 Monte Carlos.
I'm never buying another Nissan.

Shouldn't emmission controls fall under a longer warranty (ie 60k mile)?

Has he checked the EGR valve? I have a 1999 Maxima SE & had to have it replaced.
before I replaced it my light would come on & then go off. It had a slight sputter at times & I also had to rev the motor up to pass.
Hope this helps.
#2407 of 4182 1992 Maxima SE Transmission problems
Mar 31, 2005 (7:52 am)
It has 155K on it and the automatic transmission has recently started to slip to the point where only 1 and 2 work, while D slips and causes the RPMS to spike. Is there some kind of band adjustment on this transmission or perhaps a switch that can be replaced, or is it just time for a newer model. It's too bad if that's the case becasue it runs great otherwise.

Might be MAF, but THE SES light is saying its an evap system leak which leads me to believe it might be the EGR valve. I changed the fuel filter and pcv, it runs better but it has stalled after that. I may never figure out why the 1st gear ratio is giving me trouble. I do notice a little buck when it shifts from 1st to 2nd. I will never own another auto trans car in my lifetime though. anybody know any super deals on a MAF & EGR??

#2411 of 4182 01 SES Indicator
Mar 31, 2005 (7:56 pm)
At 75k my SES light came on. I was told that the computer may need to be reset. When I took the car for inspection, asked my mechanic to also check. When I picked my car up, light was off. This was in Jan 05. This month, March 05 the light came on again 77k. Mechanic said may be the sensors and I need to bring it to the dealer for the code. My question is should I bring to the dealer or can Auto Zone tell me what the dealer will for free? Check fuel cap as manual stated, but it's been a month now and I'm starting to worry, I travel 400 miles weekly Phila-DC and back. Any help would be appreciated.

I have 133,000 on mine and have had to replace all 3 catalytic converters and all 6 coil packs....ridiculous! Concerning your rich code, it could be the mass flow sensor is not allowing enough air into the engine. I had to replace that in mine as well !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice car to drive when she is working.....but in my experience, HIGH MAINTENANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
