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.

2007 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

problem #1

Maxima 6-cyl

We owned the car for less than one month and the service engine light comes on. Took it to the dealer and was informed that it was because the gas cap wasn't fully closed and we would be charged $100 to turn off the service light. Not only that but we were chastised because we didn't notice the warning on the gas cap that this would happen. This is unacceptable because not fully closing or leaving the gas cap off is a common mistake that any vehicle owner makes at least once. At least the service light should go off once you tighten the gas cap. We shouldn't have to go to the dealer and pay to have the light turned off. This is a safety issue because we won't go to the dealer for this type of "fix" again. What if there is a more serious problem and we are riding around with the service light on, thinking it is just the gas cap? updated 01-16-08.
