#8 of 12 2007 maxima timing chain issue
Oct 27, 2010 (8:05 am)
I have a 2007 Maxima with a timing chain problem, only 68K on car and Nissan won't back it up, only response from them is engine parts do fail. A timing chain should last pretty much for the life of a car. I guess Maxima's life span is about 70K. I'll never buy another Nissan.

I have same engine in my 05 and I have over 100k so it should last at least this long.

I own a 2007 Nissan Maxima, Ive had it for a year, bought it used, Its been in the shop 8 times, I think I have driven rental cars more than my own car, the car lags and will not go pass 3,500 rpm even when foot all the way to the floor, Its impossible to pass on the highway when this occurs, iam really concerned about my safety on the road, thers also whinning noise coming from the engine when trying to accelerate,.when driving 25mph the rpms are stuck at 2,500 and dont drop until I come to a complete stop..i have had a bad experience with nissan shops, they dont know anything, all they do is hook up the computer and say oh we find no codes or falts, we have to replicate the problem, so bring it in when its failing and again no codes or faultsin the system, they call tech-line and those idiots say oh its probably this or that, we have never incounterd such an issue with maximas which is a complete lie, I read the forms and a ton of people report the same issue and the same treatment at the dealership,.i asked them well if you guys cant find any issue then get someone who can, they are like oh our techs are certified and know alot about our cars which BS....they said oh your vehical is fine its running normaly, so I said then state it in writen form that my vehical is safe to drive so if anything happens to me on the road I will take this paper and go straight to court with it, they said we dont wanna put ourselfs out like that and be liable...nissan has one of the worst customer service I ever seen, this is the first and last time I deal with nissan, never again will I buy a car from them...i even contacted nissan usa about this and those idiots are no different from the dealer shops,..in bellingham I got cussed out and thrown out of the shop because they said I somehow violated the warrenty which I didnt, they cursed at me using F words and what not...

just curious if this problem could be linked to the VDC or TCS systems. both these systems can reduce engine output even when the accelerator is pushed to the floor.
