#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.
