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. Notes: The 2007 Nissan Maxima is a very good, reliably vehicle. Beware of Maximas from the 3 previous years though.

Nissan Maximas from 2004-2006 have a widespread transmission defect, but judging from our complaint data, Nissan fixed the problem for the 2007 model.

Maxima 6-cyl

  • 77,000 miles
I took my Nissan in for a routine oil change at pep boys and was immediately notified of rust on the floor boards on both sides of the car. It was brought to my attention that the driver side is becoming a safety issue and can fail at any time due to the severity of the problem. I notified my local Nissan dealership and was given a quote for the repairs. I forwarded said quote to Consumer Affairs at Nissan of North America and was later notified that the manufacture declined any solution to my problem. It has come to my attention that many cars of the same make and model have the same exact issue. It has been reported before both with the NHTSA as well as the BBB. If it is a prevalent problem the manufacturer should take responsibility for the defect and try to repair all issues before people are hurt. The repairs are extensive, labor consuming and expensive.

  • 90,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Maxima. The contact stated that one of the bolts that held the drivers seat corroded. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who decided to put a piece of sheet metal where the rust was located as a temporary remedy. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure who did not offer any assistance since the vehicle was not included on any recalls and advised the contact to reach out to NHTSA. The failure and current mileage was 90,000.
