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 at a Nissan dealership getting a new intelli-key made for the car when the steering wheel lock broke. I found out this would be the third time this locking mechanism has been replaced on this car alone. The technician turned the steering wheel to the right and the lock broke and locked into place. How many times does the same part have to break on a Nissan before you consider it to be a bad part? the steering lock was recalled before it left the factory, replaced 2 times over the next 7 years. The steering lock is not a part that fails because it is repeatedly used or because of too many miles, it is caused by a poor quality part! once again this is the 3rd time this part has been replaced on this vehicle, I have had 18 cars over the last 30 years and I have never had a steering lock fail.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Maxima. While driving in reverse approximately 5 mph, there was a complete loss in the power steering for a period of one minute. The failure occurred during cold weather temperatures. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on two separate occasions for the similar defect and they were unable to duplicate the problem each time. The manufacturer was not notified of the malfunction. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000.

Hear a clicking noise when making turns. I took it into the dealer and they could not find anything. I was told they tighten the steering. I was close to my factory warranty expiring. It lasted until 3 months later and the clicking is back. I was told I would be charged to look at since it is out of warranty.
