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

problem #1

I noticed that my engine had not a single oil qt.

That's weird because I just did the tune up back in Feb.

There's no smoke, no oil spill, nothing.

So I was reading some post and seems to be a problem with the Nissan and something about the CAT converter.

I don't know but...this could be fixed if I replace just the CATs?

Anybody knows?
