Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

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.

2004 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

Manual clutch failure. Driving in heavy, slow, traffic or for long distance and many hours of travel would cause the clutch peddle to sink to the floor making shifting nearly impossible. Problem occurred within first year of ownership. Stopping, touring car off and restarting usually fixed problem. Yesterday clutch sunk to floor and stayed there. Dealer examined car a year or more ago, while under warranty and could not find a problem. Now car is undrivable safely.
