if Nissan isn't going to do anything about it I'd report it to your state's consumer affairs department or lemon department mentioned in the owners manual to try and get some kind of resolution; based on what I've read on this forum and the details of the recall it sounds like your problem is related to the recall Nissan put out on the front strut insulators; if Nissan replaced it with the same faulty insulators from that Chinese company that made it crappy in the first place you'd still have the same problem you did before; I'm not sure if you had it replaced before or after the recall was identified and issued by Nissan last month because Nissan has only stopped using those insulators since last month; but I'd get your states consumer's affair department involved

After 2 weeks of calling nissan sometimes 3 times a day they called the dealer and they did the recall this past wed it took 4 hrs but so far its worked. I took the service mgr for a ride before I left because if the noise was still there I was going to leave the car and call my attonery. The recall is for cars that were made 3/09 to 8/09.

I just bought a 2009 Maxima a month ago. They had me test drive it on a smooth surface at the car dealership...I purchased the car (1st new car ever). Since then I have heard clanging, banging and odd noises when going over a bump or somettimes when making a turn and my foot is on the break, Yesterday something clunked from under the car and banged on the break pedal. There are times I hear clunking in the rearend of the car....and at times it seems ok. The noises are intermittant soft then loud...I am crazy. I had a 2000 maxima that drove better than this one....can anyone assist?

I have a 2010 Maxima SV and have isolated a rattle/squeaky noise coming from somewhere in the back passenger side seat; I originally thought it was in the ceiling but when I put the 60 fold part of the passenger seat down and drive the car with the seat down I don't hear the noise at all; when I put the passenger side rear seat back up into its normal position I hear the noise when going over bumps and expansion joints; I guess there is something loose in the hinge area where the rear seat locks onto the back trunk wall and it vibrates or shakes when ever going over a bump; don't think the dealer can do anything about it without tearing the car apart and I don't think it is worth it; should have gotten the premium package with the fixed seat back so that I wouldn't have this problem at all; not sure if this is the same problem your having but this is what I'm dealing with; if you don't have the 60/40 split seats then this def is not your problem; very disappointed with the amount of squeaks and rattles an almost 38k car has! pathetic is the cheaply made front center console armrest and cheap plastic underneath; making squeaky sounds whenever my elbow rests on it!!

sounds like you might be the recipient end of the strut insulator recall currently on 2009 Maxima's made between March 2009 and August 2009; will most likely have to take it into the dealer and have them take a look at it! other people on this forum have commented on similar problems with the suspension and having to have the struts replaced!

The recall is not out as of yet.I have had the problem for a month 1/2 and finally nissan north america called the dealership to do the recall last week. I had to call nissan to get a file started and it took me calling them every day to get it taken care of. The service advisor told me the recall is not coming out until the 14th of this month.

thank you for responding...they replaced the front struts this past MOnday and I didn't even make it out of the dealership parking lot before it made a "clanging Noise. Since Monday I have experienced same + other noises/issues. I need to call them again to let them know...cause yesterday is when something banged up against the break pedal....1st new car ever- I am very sad....

well then Nissan postponed the recall because it was suppose to start on October 5th because that is what their website said; maybe it's going to affect more altima and maxima's then they originally thought so they postponed it; with Nissan who knows!

This may sound like a dumb question, but since I just got mine how do I tell if I have the 60/40 seat in the back, I am hoping I do so that may be the culprit of the creaking noise problem. I am going to call my dealer tomorrow fairly angry though that this problem has just now developed after I bought it. Has anyone had luck with getting the dealer to completely fix the creaking noise from the back?
