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?

My car is in the shop right now. They made a pair of strut sleeves to try to minimize the noise. The number for Nissan North America is 1-866-799-1690. I would recommend calling daily. It has taken me since June. They replaced the struts once already and when that didn't work they built the sleeves for me. We will see if it works. Very dissapointed in this car and Nissan service.

i am on the phone with they guy now at nissan america. He is telling me that my car, although an 09, is not under the recall VIN!!!??? I mean we got the car earlier in the year I cannot imagine why it would not be included. Regardless of the fact of if its in the recall, we are experiencing the noises and problems explained in the recall.
This is ludicrous

I have been calling the Nissan Customer Service Rep for the Western region for an update on my file every other day and they never return my call.
If people like myself have been reporting this issue since May and Nissan hasn't been able to implement a fix, does anyone know if this could be considered a Lemon? Or does Nissan have the obligation to find a resolution since there are so many people experiencing the same issue?
#56 of 80 7th Gen Maxima Potential Brake/Rotor Issues?
Dec 27, 2009 (4:20 pm)
Hi, I wanted to find out from any current 2009 Maxima owners who have at least 10-20k miles on their cars if you have begun to have any brake/rotor issues in regards to grinding/squeaking when applying the brakes or have had the pads replaced already and/or rotors resurfaced?
Reason I ask is that I have a 2010 Maxima with about 3k miles on it and I noticed that at times the brake pedal seems touchy and that I have to really press it down hard to get good braking from the car; I just got off a 2005 FX35 lease where I had to have the brakes replaced and rotors resurfaced every 10k miles and I wanted to know if I have to look forward to this on my 2010 Max
Also of concern is that on the Altima forum, a lot of people, even 2009 Altima owners are having brake/rotor issues and I was hoping that is wouldn't translate into a problem on the 2009 and 2010 Maxima's as well

I have 05 Max
If you go OEM even if you drive like me and avoid using brakes, you need to replace them approximately every 20-25 k. The rotors are the Achilles heal of Maxima. You can only resurface them once, essentially you are being forced to replace them every 40-45k miles.

Has anyone had problems with the monitor on the 09 maxima. During a rain storm yellowish spots appeared on the ipod screen. they have replaced the monitor and the problem was fixed, for about 5 minutes and now they're back Now I'm being told that it has always been that way..
#59 of 80 Suspension, Brakes,Paint and general warranty issues
Jan 23, 2010 (7:02 pm)
I have a 2009 Maxima. I purchased it July of 2008, I now have 25,000 miles on it. I noticed from the first month I owned it that the brake rotors showed excessive wear,the breaks squeak, I have a squeak and clunk coming from the right front suspension. It only happens when I turn right and go up an incline. Have you noticed that the inside of the door jams on the drivers and passengers door were the front fender meets the door on the inside of the fender is not painted. it is gray primer. The dealers say they are all that way. That doesn't make it right.(poor excuse) My trunk liner on the trunk ceiling is falling down. ( I ordered the parts a year ago, still no call)
I have been to two Nissan Dalers, Both have written repair orders, both told me they would have the Western Regional representative get in touch with me and I have written a letter to Nissan USA. This has been going on for 18months. As of today I still have not had a call from anyone, the first dealer went out of business and the second dealer has never called me back to tell me to come in to have my car repaired. I think it is time for a class action law suit. We all spent good money for what was supposed to be one of the best cars on the market.
A poor economy is no excuse for poor customer service from a company that used to offer the best in the industry. Is any anyone intrusted in getting together on these issues.

It should be easy for you to obtain and good following. I haven't had any problems yet with my 2009 and hopefully I won't. But..... I know a former Nissan dealer in my area that parted ways with Nissan for the same reason. He thought they make great cars but the customer service from Nissan corporate was terrible. He also sells Toyota and Chevy and claims that they bend over backwards to make the customer satisfied. However, Nissan's customer service was severely lacking and he just couldn't deal with it anymore. They wanted him to build a separate $5 million showroom separate from his other brands during a time when car sales were hurting.
Nissan needs to take a serious look at their customer relations.
