Bought my '04 with 32000 miles on it the summer of 06. Now have 256000 miles on it. Most significant issue was ABS problem caused by rear passenger wheel. Was able to minimize it with ABS control module bought off wrecked car. Rust starting to show up around rear wheels and automatic transmission getting clunky. Timing Chain and guide is a big concern for me now. Had to repair rusty floor pan passenger side with AngelHair at about 150k.

04 v6 maxima had it for 3 years, it has163,000 miles i got it at 120,000 miles from my dad who bought it like new. I put new starter on it yesterday, left me stranded, not the first time and I guess wont be the last. It has been properly serviced all its life. My tires go flat all the time. So I bought all new tires. They still lose air, I have to keep air pump works off lighter in my car to keep tires aired up. Terrible noises come from engine bay from time to time. I just did timing chain kit because failed on me. Motor Mounts, AC compressor, valve cover gaskets, new shocks & struts because others decided to quit working, I have had to replace senors, fuses, batterieS, filters, braking system completely, down to ABS failure. Grounding issue that was causing car to stall in turns was fixed. Now when I am driving, it goes out of gear on its on then slams its self back into drive... at times I pull out at redlight, my maxima revs up while in drive... wont move forward must wait for it to decide to go into gear, slipping terrible. I baby it in hopes it will last until tax time. Its by far been worse money pit I have owned. I have nearly replaced entire car. Next I am ordering headlights because mine are so far gone driving at night sucks... headlights are wornout so are seals on majority of the car. Some rust issues I have to address tax time as well. I cant afford another car, I bought my wife new SUV, maxima is my work car but half time I am riding hers to work because maxima needs a day off for repairs. I dont hate the car but dang no joke... came here to read stuff on tranny issues probably only post I make, seemed fitting for thread.

I am sorry to say DMAC88 but that seems the norm for the 04 Maxima. It is the worse year for Nissan Maximas that I have ever seen. Check out www.carcomplaints.com. I have an 04 Maxima and an 08 BMW Z4 (Fun but repairs are a b***h!!). I may go Subaru next time.

116k and got at 100k
2007 3.5L have not touched CVT fluid and the entire car is 100% mechanical condition. Quite often take decent drives on demanding roads and push hard, the CVT just turns every action into a smooth, drawn-out motion. I am really liking the feeling of oneness with the accelerator and engine revs. Extremely satisfying on corners that you get perfect.

I definitely would take a Manual but... I prefer CVT over auto. Definitely excited for the future of CVT and I would be very keen to test somesort of charer or increase in torque as the CVT + Charger + the general VQ35 amazing torque.... now that would just be epic to drive right???

Have already got - Remus Cat Back/Lowered Suspension/Koni shocks at front/KYB dampers for rear/uprated springs. 18" 225/45 Direzza Dunlops

Plan is for cold air intake next. I don't see how it could make it sound any better though... Remus with that 3.5 man.... Okay I need to go for a drive now

haha! just got a 2007 3.5SL in the beginning of October at 115k. i have plans for some exterior mods, and then I'm gonna get a catback and a CAI.... where'd you find that Remus at? seems anything on eBay is archaic at this point... or at least it's a nameless catback

Well here is the interesting thing... In 2007 the NZ Nissan Factory made their own version and called it a Nissan Maxima Spec-R - basically all the mods I listed before was factory added by them.

I wanted to find specifically what exhaust system I had because I loved it so much, but being 10 years ago the only information I have is the 3-4 reviews that exist online. I have contacted both Remus Australia and Nissan but none of them really knew anything about the NZ Maxima Spec-R (we are kind of separate from the world down here).

It has a middle quite long cylinder muffler that connects to a y-pipe then two muffler + tips - is quite loud for what I thought 3 mufflers would sound like so must be designed properly

cat-back will definitely make your driving experience way more enjoyable

2007 Maxima I bought new now has 218000+ miles. Starting to overheat at stop lights and sitting still, idling. I noticed the AC cooling fan working but not the radiator fan. Where might the fuses be. Has anyone faced this problem with the fan? How did it get resolved. Love the car and looks like new. Thanks for reading.

2007 Maxima, I purchased it with 65k mile on it and it currently has right at 94k miles. Because my local dealers ALWAYS have oil special deals, I religiously get the oil changed every 3k miles (ish)... I would typically pay around $15 for an oil change. I've done the typical maintenance stuff, Rotors, breaks, air cabin filter, engine filter...

Things I fixed:
  • Timing belt tensioner rattle (dealer repaired under extended warranty)
  • High-pressure A/C line
  • 1 TPS (Tire Pressure Sensor)
  • High-pressure power steering line
  • Leaking fuel regulator (What a PITA to remove and replace)
  • Clockspring (another PITA because I have a heated steering wheel and it was tough to find)
  • Rear Trunk shocks (Make sure you purchase the ones that state "With Spoiler" if you have a spoiler.)
Things that need to be fixed / Maintaince
  • Fogs lights currently don't work. I have to rewire the hack job to have them on with the 6-O'clock lights.
  • Transmission fluid drains and refill.
  • Bleed and replace brake fluid
  • Replace both HID bulbs, right now they don't match.

The fuse could be under the hood. It's not the fuse it could be the Temperature sending unit that determines when the fan should go on. Good luck!

I am the second owner of my 1998 Nissan Maxima. I bought it in 2001 and it currently has 418,000+ miles on it. It is just about as quiet as the year I bought it.
