2006 Nissan Maxima Problems

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.

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

The Camshaft position sensor can leak oil into its electrical connector causing the Check Engine light to illuminate. The engine may also stall intermittently as a result.

2006 Nissan Maxima Recalls

Nissan has recalled 2006 Maxima and Altima models because the rear subframe may have been manufactured incorrectly, which could result in a crack in the bracket that holds part of the rear suspension. If the bracket cracks, the stability of the vehicle may be affected, which could lead to a loss of control and a possible crash. Dealers will inspect the rear subframe to determine if it was manufactured incorrectly and replace it, if necessary.

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.

2006 Nissan Maxima Reviews

My 2006 Maxima did fairly well until the last six months. The A/C went out followed by a replacement of the transmission, an engine fuel leak and cracked engine mounts. Heater blows hot and sometimes cold. Metal sounding noise comes when the car accelerates. The good news is that I've been able to go 80,000 before needing to replace the brake pads. I'm so glad I bought an extended warranty...

Nice looking no doubt. It's what's on the inside that counts. Brake problems at 10,000, then again at 35,000, now again at 89,000,,,warped rotors,,,the odd thing is is that my wife drives it like a baby and I rarely ever drive it.. A/C hose went out at 88,000. Now the transmission is starting to jerk when put into 1st gear. This problem just started and has been getting worse. If I buy a new ca...

needed a new transmission...from the reviews i have been reading this appears to be an ongoing problem. i bought this car new and i will never buy another nissan again. i would think there would be some sort of recourse re the transmission issue but i guess i am wrong
