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?

if you have the 60/40 split seats there will be two white/gray trunk pulls in the back ceiling of the trunk that you pull down; the passenger side also has a release up above and behind the rear headrest in the car; if you have the premium package you won't have the 60/40 split seats!

Nissan North America just called me back. I have had a claim open with them since August. When the first recall came out, October 5th for the strut insulator I thought my problems would go away. Well according to Nissan my car is not on that recall list. I have been pressing them to fix the grinding noise on my right front wheel. They have already replaced the strut and sway bar once but it didn't fix it. During the phone call today they told me that there will be ANOTHER recall posted on October 19th and hopfully my car will be part of that recall. They would not tell me the details of the future recall but instead told me to call my dealership. The car has been making this noise since June. I am not happy at all with my brand new Nissan Maxima.

Just as an update to the creaking noise coming from my new 2009 maxima SV. I took it into the dealer a few days ago and they basically took apart everything from the back seat to the trunk to find it. Evidently, in the left rear in the trunk there was two pieces of metal that come together in the body and compensate for body roll. For some reason they were supposed to be welded together but were not, so hence every bump/turn/etc they were rubbing today and making the creaking noise. They put a spot weld on them and at least for a few days now I haven't heard anything. Needless to say I wasn't too happy to see my brand new car in complete pieces, but at least it is all back together now!

Can anyone tell me what the break in period for the Maxima 09 is? I've had my car for almost 3 months, since August 3. I currently have 1,510 miles on the car and I'm at 12.9 mpg... I called Nissan and they said it would fluctuate, but there's no fluctuation just a steady decline. I live in NYC... so I'm going off the 19 city miles. I know its a new car, but is it normal for the mpg to be soo low??

You have 290HP so don't expect expect 19MPH in the city.U may get close to 16MPH. U bought performance over gas conservation.
