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.
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.

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.

I'm so glad I bought an extended warranty...

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.
