2005 Nissan Maxima Problems

Low Pressure AC Hose May Leak at Crimped Connection

The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.

Leaking 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.

Failed External Seal on Engine Oil Cooler May Leak

The external seal on the engine oil cooler can fail and create an oil leak.

Now they want to charge me $350.00 for the crimped hose that "didnt hold the seals" last week. Granted the part is $200.00+ but what about the useless repairs/labor from last week. Once again feeling SCREWED! Isn't it their fault for not discovering this LAST WEEK?

2005 Nissan Maxima Recalls

Child Seat Anchors May Not Be in the Correct Location

The lower child seat anchors in the rear seat do not meet the location requirement as stated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, and may cause difficulty securing some child seats. If a child seat is not secured, there is an increased risk of injury in a crash. Dealers will replace the lower seat anchor brackets with modified ones. The recall began on October 17, 2005.

Nissan Recalls 2004-2006 Maximas Due to Misrouted Seat Wire Harness

Nissan has recalled 2004-2006 Maxima models equipped with the driver preferred package because the wire harness from the driver's seat power lumbar support switch may be routed incorrectly, which can cause it to pinch under the driver's seat. A pinched harness, in combination with driving vibration, may result in a short circuit in the harness that could lead to a fire in the seat. Dealers will replace the wire harness and route it correctly.
