I just started having the same issue with my 2010 Nissan Maxima SV. It is extremely loud when I shut off the vehicle. The noise seems to be coming from the front wheel wells or under the front end of the car.
My Maxima also has 8,000 miles on it. It is still under warranty. Before I bring it in for service to help resolve the issue. What was the end result of your problem? How was it resolved? What was causing the noise?
Thanks for your time.

It won't get resolved, mine hasn't either. It just the heat shield expanding and contracting which makes the knocking and pinging sound. I even told them that I have never had a car do this before WHILE the engine is running.
I have had some cars in the past do this a little bit when cooling off in the garage but this car takes the cake. It is constantly loud and unrefined sounding. It really sounds like a popcorn maker. Just absolutely ridiculous that a $40k dollar car makes noises like this and Nissan says that is normal. They just don't get it!
#89 of 136 Re: 2010 Maxima Issues - seat covers? [maximapa1]
Feb 09, 2011 (9:43 am)
Maxima 2009 - I purchased a new 2009 max and the seat cover look like it was 3 yrs old. The dealers said it would flatten out but never did. A year later, they replaced the seat cover with another one, which looked like it was 10 yrs old. Almost 1 1/2 yrs later, the dealer showed my a notice he received from Nissan acknowledging the defect. The dealer would not give me a copy but said he would call me in 30 days to repair it. 6 months later no call. I have contacted a Lemon Law attorney, maybe you should fo the same.

FINALLY brought it in....at my 15K "service" mark (good thing it's a company car....$296 for oil/filter/wiper blades/rot/balance??) which was overdue, mentioned the "noise"...could not replicate as it was warmer/raining. Luckily, a tech took pity on me and found NTB011-007B which replaced rear stabilizer bushings.
Don't lubricate the old ones, that is exactly what should NOT be done!
Insist on this NTB fix, I was told that low speed, cold weather exacerbated the condition and I concur!

Looks like they used the ultra high priced Ester Oil for your oil change. You will not invalidate your warantry if you opt for the regular mineral oil instead. Just tell the Service manager thats what you want. Thanks for the TSB report on the rear bushings!
#92 of 136 201o Maxima Vehicle Info Display - OIL FILTER!
Jul 10, 2011 (3:18 pm)
Our 2010 Max has about 9500 miles on it. I last changed the oil & filter at 8000 miles (every 4000 mi). Today while driving, the VID display showed an oil filter icon. It was not the oil pressure light! Could not find anything in the owner's manual. Any thoughts?

Did you get this resolved? We took our 2010 Maxima in for the starter button clicking and not starting. The nissan service center could not find the problem and we left with it not resolved. Two hours after we got it back from the dealer it would not start. They said that the battery was working properly and holding a charge and they could not get it to not start. Nissan has always been a reliable product. It still does it and no resolution so far. Are they (Nissan)hiding this problem from the public? Let me know if anyone has this problem. Thanks.

I also have a 2010 Max and the exact same thing happened to me last month. The dealer said the battery was fine, but I know when the battery is the problem, and asked them to replace it anyway. They did under the prorated warranty, and I've had no more problems. The batteries only seem to last about 2 years.

I recently purchased a pre-owned certified 2010 Maxima with monitor, navigation and technology package. Car has 17,000 miles. Same thing has occurred on three occasions. Dealer unable to duplicate but says battery is fine. Car started after being left alone for a while.
