Takata recall.I brought my 2016 Maxima in June 2015. Plastic bottles melts and explodes in my car. And eye glass class melts. Front right bumber clamps broke off. Months later cat started making a chruching sound when I hit a bump. Replace bushings. 3 days later the nose came back. Went back to Nissan they said the strut needed to be replace. Went back 2 months later the part is still on back order. Front driver seat broke in the 1st 2 weeks of owning it. Got a new seat. And the door jams was poorly painted. Took almost 7 weeks to get a new seat and paint for the car. Driver seat beat latch jammed up had to get that replace too.
