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 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.

I was driving North on E I-94 at the posted speed when the call started to slow down and would not accelerate past 40 miles per hour. The sluggish speed continued off and on until I reached my destination. On my return trip home, the multitude of lights came on during the drive (tcs off, brake, ABS, slip) and the car would periodically go between sluggish and regular speed. When I took it to the dealership, the car was diagnosed with have a bad ABS actuator and one bad speed sensor, total cost of repairs about $2400. From what I've read, this is a recurring Nissan problem across models and should be recalled. It is unconscionable that we should be have to pay for a company mistake.

ABS, slip, tcs & brake lights came on suddenly while taking off and there was excessive vibration. As a result, there was (and still is) a total loss of ABS & tcs systems.. engines revs high & surges while taking 1/4 mile to reach 40mph. Diagnostic states that there are problems with the ABS actuator, speed sensors & wheel hub. &2,858.65 to repair. Given the lack of acceleration reliability as well as the loss of braking & traction systems, this is a serious safety issue.
