Lots of Nissan cars had known bearing issues in the rear. My sentra spec v failed around that time. Fortunately, theyre easy to replace.

Yes it is. Thats a common problem with Maxima's.Your Maxima's biggest defect is to be VERY cautious of ABS lights if you live in high salt areas. They have a defect where the rr abs sensor corrodes (there is an inexpesive repair and if not tended to can short out your 1400 dollar ABS module...- Mike. Nissan asst service manager..
