One thing with the transmission drains and refills (they don't really "flush" them anymore), is honestly this is one thing I'd have the dealership do. You have to use the specific Nissan-branded fluid, and it has to be done in a very specific way. This is not something I'd trust an independent shop with, personally.
#3620 of 4184 01 Maxima SE A/T Engine Mount Noise
Mar 27, 2007 (7:44 pm)
I started to hear a buzzing noise after the engine is turned off on my Maxima. I searched the posts here and it sounds like the engine mount. No one ever posted a resolution to their problem and I am wondering if I need to replace it or if I can let it go. Any comments on the subject would be appreciated.
#3621 of 4184 '01 air bag module

The air bag light started flashing on my '01 GLE. Dealer says it needs a new air bag module. Have others experienced this failure? I've never had an air bag problem with other cars I have owned. Is it just something that can happen occasionally? It's somewhat expensive to repair. Up to this point I have not had to fix anything major.

I bought Nissan tranny oil and did it independent shop. 12K later no issues or leaks. I do everything except recalls or warranty repairs at that shop. I trust my mechanic and he doesn't put me down with unnecessary jobs. Rattling Noise is a known issue and I agree there was a recall for it on 04 3.5 nissan cars.
#3623 of 4184 sqeaking noise in front end
Mar 30, 2007 (5:15 am)
Hello, I recently test drove a 2003 maxima SE with 40,000 mi and an asking price of $15,500. Everything seemed OK with the vehicle, but I did notice a slight squeaking sound in the front end as I went over bumps and dips at low speed. Any idea if this is anything to worry about? Also, does anyone has any thoughts on the year/mileage price?

2K Maxima: One or all the door locks unpredictably at times. Remote unit works well. Any ideas? Also trunk won't open with remote or button in car....need to open with key only.

I have a 95 maxima and just today it is giving a problem. someone said the timing chain bar broke ,does that sound right and if so is that a mazor repair? I had it jumped one time in order to get home from work, but then it went dead again.Any help you can offer would be appreciated... Thanks,

I am the original owner of a silver 2003 max SE with 43k miles on it now. To date, zero mechanical problems. Only major expense was I did replace the shitty OEM Potenza tires at 34k with Yokohamas. I have numerous (minor) interior squeaks/rattles that go away when i turn up the excellent standard stereo. Price you mention is halfway between kbb retail value of 16.4k and private party value of 14.6k Good luck; FWIW, i would check the front brake pads for wear too.
