nissan halts sales on some maximas for quality issues

Nissan has told its dealers to stop selling specific models of the Maxima due to unspecified quality issue, Automotive News is reporting.

The issue involves Maximas with a specific VIN, not a model type. It’s unclear if those cars have been delivered to dealers or customers. According to Automotive News, Nissan hasn’t identified how many models would be affected by the stop-sale, nor how many of the models may have already been sold.

Nissan hasn’t made available details about the VIN number or how to identify the held cars.

A Denver-area Nissan dealer said he wasn’t aware of the stop-sale at all.

A Nissan spokesman told Automotive News that the company would investigate the issue further before making any public statements.

“Nissan is committed to a high level of customer service and satisfaction,” the company said in a statement to Automotive News. “This commitment requires Nissan to periodically place certain specific vehicles on a temporary Quality Assurance Hold to assure that these vehicles, as delivered to our customers, meet our exacting standards and our customers’ expectations.”

    Nissan, save yourselves the bother. Just stop selling the Maxima already.

    I always wondered what happened to the designer of the Pontiac Aztec.

    Maybe Nissan will sell some more Maximas next year, because Honda just ruined the Accord by Acura-tizing its looks.

      @Corey Lewis I won't argue that, the newer Accords better in every way imo. But the most recent ones just...awful. Clearly Honda needs more female engineers to remedy this!
