#42 of 80 loss of power
Oct 25, 2009 (11:25 am)
I have a one month old 2009 Nissan Maxima with 1200 miles. Yesterday at a red light the service engine soon light, the slip indicator light and the vehicle dynamic control off light all came on. The car would not accelerate and would only idle at ten miles per hour. I checked all fluids levels and everything is Ok. This morning only the service engine light remained on and the car performed normally but after about five minutes the other two lights came on and the car again lost the ability to accelerate and would only idle. I am now trying to contact my dealer to get it towed in for service. Has anyone experienced this problem?
#43 of 80 2008 Maxima Transmission Problem
Nov 01, 2009 (7:50 pm)
I have heard nothing, but excellent reviews on the Nissan Maxima. I had a 2004 Nissan Altima and never had a problem with the Altima other than changing the fuses. I could not afford the newer model Maxima; However I was able to purchase a 2008 Altima at 23,000. The next day the transmission failed and the car was towed back to Nissan.

I was just writing about my 2008 Nissan Maximas transmission. The car would not accelerate after 60 mph. It did not change gears. Once I stopped the car it completely "went dead". I had bought the car used; However it was one day old for me. It has been towed back to Nissan. I am seriously considering a refund and purchasing for the same price an Altima. I had zero problems with my Altima that was a 2004.
#47 of 80 highway vibration
Nov 27, 2009 (1:51 pm)
My 2009 maxima sv with 8,000 miles was recently in for service, the dealership rotated the tires and now I have a mild vibration at 75+mph. I emailed the dealership and they thought maybe a "wieght" fell off when rotating the tires. My guess is if I bring the car in they'll charge me $99 to rebalance. Do you think they would cover this for free/warranty? Should I just go to a local tire shop and have the tires rebalanced for much less $$$?

At 8000 miles, everything should be under warranty.
#49 of 80 Clunking noise in front end, front floor mat anchor
Dec 06, 2009 (5:01 pm)
I have an 09 Maxima and have been having issues with the clunking noise in the front end. The have already replaced the struts and strut bearings, but the noise is still there. The problem is, they can never reproduce the sound. I have taken the technician on a drive and showed him...he acknowledged hearing it, but when it got back to the shop they couldn't find the problem. I am taking it to another shop this week.
Another problem I have is the anchor for the drivers side front floor mat. It came loose and wouldn't hold the floor mat. They tried gluing it in place, but that didn't work. Then they replaced the carpet (scratched the paint in the process and had to have that fixed). It wasn't two weeks and the anchor came loose again. Any ideas? Anyone else having that problem?

I have had the same clunking noise since May. I have taken this to the dealership approx 7 times to try and get this issue resolved. Still not fixed.
I have a case opened with Nissan Corporate and still no resolution. Maybe if enough people complain this will get resolved soon. Very disappointed!

I am also a victim of this noise at the front end. I have taken the car to the dealership in Memphis Tn over 5+ times. They have replaced the struts and bearings and I hear the sound STILL!!! It seems to occur when I make left turns. I have taken the drive with the mechanic and ironically it does not make a sound!
What should I do now? Who has the number to Nissan America?
