2001 Nissan Maxima ProblemsLeaking power steering pump can cause noise/steering problems
If the power steering pump develops leaks, it can drip onto the lower control arm bushing causing the bushing to deteriorate. A knocking noise will be heard when driving over bumps and it may become more difficult to control the vehicle.

2001 Nissan Maxima RecallsInjury Due to Airbag Deployment
Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required.

As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.
