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.

While driving to my children's house for the Holidays the light came on. When I first bought the car I had to take the car in because the light came on they said it was the seat belt and supposedly fixed the problem. I do not usually have anyone riding in the back seat but my grandchildren went with me so i do not know if it is the seat belt or the airbags. The manual said it could be either one.
