CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2004-2006 Nissan Maxima has widespread transmission problems. It starts with the vehicle jerking when shifting, & progresses to full-blown transmission failure.

Maxima owners report spending $3,000 to replace the transmission, typically around when the odometer hits 100,000 miles.

There's a class action lawsuit filed in late 2011, & it is still in the "discovery" stage. Apparently, these things take time ... far too much time.

Noticed that speedometer and odometer wasn't working. ABS light stays on, ABS no longer works. Mechanic says it will cost about $2200 (part is $1700). I've seen a ton of complaints about the same issue from others! Needs to be recalled ASAP!!
