They're often easy to notice. 2018 Nissan Maxima transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

2018 Nissan Maxima Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Maxima’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Maxima's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Nissan Maxima’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Nissan's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
