Faulty thermostat

Many Nissan Maximas have been known to have issues with the thermostat. The main issue with the thermostat of many Nissan Maximas is that it can become stuck. When the thermostat becomes stuck, it can lead to overheating. When an engine overheats, it can become susceptible to a cracked head gasket and other damage to the engine.

AC leakage

The Nissan Maxima is known to sometimes leak from the AC at a compressed connection when at low pressure. When the AC leaks, eventually the air conditioner will only be able to produce warm air at all times. The main downside to a leaking AC is that the required repairs can often be quite expensive.

Leaking power steering pump

Many Nissan Maxima owners have reported that after the 100,000 miles mark, the power steering pump will begin to leak power steering fluid. A leak in the power steering pump can cause the vehicle to whine or make a clunking noise when the steering wheel is turned. Also, a power steering pump with little or no power steering fluid can be extremely hard to control making it more difficult to maneuver and more susceptible to accidents.

Ignition coil failure

An ignition coil failure can cause a vehicle to misfire when it accelerates, and in some cases, the misfire can be so strong that it caused the vehicle to shut down while in motion. A vehicle that suddenly shuts down while in motion can become a hazard on the road and cause an accident. With the Nissan Maxima, many owners noticed that when one ignition coil failed, it caused others to fail as well.

Faulty speedometer

One bizarre issue with the Nissan Maxima occurs when the vehicle speed sensor fails. When the vehicle speed sensor fails, the vehicle could be in motion and going fast, however, the speedometer will remain at zero as if the vehicle is not moving at all. Although annoying, it is incredibly inexpensive to fix.
