2003 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 242007

Maxima 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,000 miles


The murano lost acceleration on the interstate and would not go into gear; it came to a complete stop on the exit ramp between I-95 North and I-26 toward charleston, SC. I was unable to restart the car and had to be pushed "out of harm's way by a trucker, and a couple who stopped to help. I was brought to the Nissan dealership (20 miles away in orangeburg, SC). The service dept. Determined that the fuel pump shut down, stopped working. The part had to be ordered, and I had to pay for a rental car from enterprise, so that I could drive the remaining 3 hours back to my home in travelers rest (greenville, -spartanburg area). The part arrived on 9-25-2007, and I drove 3 hours back to orangeburg to pick up my car and return the rental). My husband asked for the "old fuel pump". I had to pay $350 for the part and labor and $100 for towing. The insurance co. Reimbursed for towing. My husband thought it highly unusual for the fuel pump to go at such low mileage on the vehicle (57,000). This was not covered by warranty.
