If you have a 2009, then the service engine soon light is a common problem on that model year. I know a couple of guys on Maxima.com who went through hell trying to fix it. Some had it related to the gas cap and needed to replace that 3 times before the light stopped coming on! Go figure

I totally agree with why they are at the bottom. I too loved my car but I never thought I would have had 6 months of problems w/my 2009 Nissan Maxima that is not a year old yet. I have had issues with the air since the beginning, then the heat in the winter, now back to summer and has been in repair since April 2, 2010, because they claim its normal for air to get warmer to "cool" off the cabin. I am not accepting that crap you have made a lemon and won't replace it. Consumer Affairs has been sending a tech since May 20, he finally came last week but the service manager wouldnt call me to tell he was here "WHY"??? I am now dealing with level above the affairs in the Manufacturers office. This is my 3rd Nissan, probably my last just for the fact that loyalty means nothing for the treatment I have received for the past 4 1/2 months!!!
#21 of 23 Non Stop Issues With My 2010 Maxima
Jul 15, 2010 (4:04 pm)
Well, I purchased a brand new 2010 Maxima Sport 3.5SV, black on black. Sharp looking car but looks have been deceiving! I bought the car from the dealer first week in May 2010. Since then... I have sent the car to the dealer about 5 times...
-the rotors have been replaced twice
-the wheels re-balanced twice
-erratic and irregular idling issue (apparently new dealer software disk came last week for update)
-rear passenger window (streak/scratch from within door)
-rust inside tailpipes (now removed)
Still the car looks good... but drives strangely rough. Lots of vibration, or pulsing in the gas peddle and steering wheel has episodes of grinding or vibration... all tied to putting foot on the gas in shifting gear. CVT seems a bit sluggish at times.... not much more to say.
The dealer has been terrific in dealing with the issues... but now my car has 5000kms on it... still have the steering wheel and peddle issue. What to do?
I bought the Nissan extended 160,000/6 year warranty for piece of mind... but the way the car drives now... not sure. Disappointed really. Totally.

having the same issues with the vibrations! Finally found out, it all has to do with the OEM Goodyear RS-A tires! They are known for inherent vibration issues and Nissan knows this but b/c the Max is a 4 door sports sedan, they felt that rough sensations, vibrations, etc are normal for a car like this!
If money is not object, slap some Michelin Primacy MXV4s on and about 90% of your vibration, road noise, ride quality, feeling the road imperfections will be gone!
The other stuff, I don't know what to tell you.
