Top Nissan Maxima Problems
After surviving for eight generations and nearly 40 years, the Nissan Maxima will reportedly be discontinued. According to Car and Driver, Nissan plans to end production of the Maxima in the middle of 2023. The reason for the Maxima's discontinuation is because of Nissan's shift toward electric cars.
Here is the short answer to how long the Nissan Maxima lasts: You can expect a Nissan Maxima to last 200,000 miles. An average American drives 15,000 miles per year. Following this standard translates to 13.5 years of problem-free performance before you need to carry out major repairs on the vehicle.
Here's a quick rundown of the most common Nissan problems across all models:
Depending on your make and model vehicle, the cigarette lighter—or accessory outlet—fuse may be labeled differently, but many car's designate the lighter fuse as “LTR”, short for lighter, and you can find it in the fuse box under the hood.
Check for Power
The easiest is to simply plug in the cigarette lighter if you have it. If the lighter heats up and pops out, then the socket has power. You can also use a test light to check for power, if you have one, or examine the fuse panel to see if the cigarette lighter fuse is blown.
Use the fuse gripper tool included in the fuse box (or your fingers) to pull out the fuse. If the metal on the fuse looks broken or burned, it will need to be replaced. Buy a new fuse of the same amperage from your dealer or auto parts store and replace the bad fuse. Once installed, try the cigarette lighter again.
