I know there's one on top of the transmission that's forgotten all the time when people do clutches.

I believe there are 2, one on each side of the engine. I believe I have 2 pictures but they are covered in UV dye. I need to find them

Three like what was mentioned. One on either side of the front bottom of the motor going to the frame rail, and one off the passenger top-rear of the motor/transmission going to the transmission tunnel.

Anyone ever had problems with inadequate grounding on these cars?

15 years ago I had a Maxima and went nuts on improving the ground connections. I still have a length of 4/0 gauge wire and terminals to match. Still re-learning how to walk and getting a little bored.

not really. i don't notice any of the dimming issues past cars have had.

all i upgraded was the battery-to-body ground connection for my amp install.

Not really. I think the biggest grounding issue that comes up is the DI driver not being tight as it grounds through itself.
