Something need to be done, and soon!!! Complaint Number: 10416593 Incident Date: June 10, 2011 Date Added to File: August 1, 2011 Description of the Complaint: Having trouble with my transmission I have a 2005 maxima auto. The failure mileage was 97,000. Remove the jack stands carefully and return the Pathfinder to the ground. The manufacturer was notified on four separate occasions and the contact was waiting upon a response. Also, the transmission failed to shift correctly. Remove the transmission drain plug with a wrench.
Nissan should check into this transmission problem and possible issue a recall for these transmissions. Only special and manufacturers recommended oils are used. I had to get my car towed home. When driving, the gears would slip and the rpms would rev. It is dec 26, 2010 and the replacement transmission went out dec. I read and see it in yotube that they suggested to do the drain and fill 3 times and in between the drain and fill, I have to change or shift the gears. The transmission is failing and it should be lasting a lot longer than 5 years.
My car have 195k on it but believe me it run like a charm. Their reputation is taking a hit because of the fact they are not showing any concerns about problem why why why why is nothing being done!!!!!!!!!! Car aficionados know that dependability is built into each Nissan, and know that only top quality repair Maxima parts will suffice when repairs are needed. Also, when its hot, and you stop to put it from drive to reverse you have to wait several seconds for it to kick into gear. It is sad to say, but I am really afraid of my car. Car jerks hard when shifting form 1st to 2nd gear.
At about 70000, the transmission began to show signs of costly repairs. Transmission started having issues around 70,000 miles. By the time I pulled into the restaurant and tried to back into a parking space the car would not drive. They stated to me it was just a wheel balance problem. At 91,000 I had to replace the brakes for their first time and transmission. The transmission was replaced previously however, the contact was unable to provide the date or mileage.
The vin was not available. The vehicle had not been repaired. I have kept up on the maintenance. Remove the rest of the screws and take the pan and gasket off the transmission. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer and they advised him that the right motor mounts and the transmission would need to be replaced. I have a 2004 Nissan Maxima I bought it with 22000 now I have 100000 on it still same.
I have also been experiencing heavy engine vibrations while braking when driving. The right side will require the removal of the windshield washer tank. I have had a car with 300,000 miles on it and never had any problems!!! Your transmission is probably the aisin warner 5550. My car is now sitting in my driveway until I come up with the money to pay for a brand new transmission. We had new tires put on and balanced around 45,000 miles and the noise and vibrations actually did get a little better, but not much and it quickly got back to it's old self. I have always bragged on how great of a car, the nissan maxima is.

Tighten the bolts to 5 to 6 foot pounds. I paid my car off in full in 2005 how devoted is that nissan needs to take responsiblity for this faulty transmission. Brought it in to the dealer they told me it needs a rear main oil seal. I took my car to the Nissan dealer and was told that the problem was not detectable with a diagnostic machine, but the technician indicated that the problem was possibly a missing engine mount. The failure mileage was approximately 80,000 and the current mileage was approximately 115,000.
