I do not know exactly what happened or when but know that for a while now front end has been giving me problems with shaking violently including shaking the steering wheel mainly at speeds around 50 to 60 being the worse while not as bad at others. Buyers beware if looking at a used one. I do worry about the behavior of the truck on the road under rain, snow, or ice conditions. I have had a continuous wind noise from my sun roof that has been taken in 3 times to be repaired. Replaced brakes and wheel bearings and had to replace shocks quickly upgrading them along with steering to hold 32X10. It is possible but I just don't see how.
I have never used it to date. As far as the hood, fenders, and other body metal items at most small dents. Refused by dealer to fix due to where I lived and road conditions. The dealership noticed a malfunction at the time of the pdi but did not disclose this at the time of sale to my great outrage. My Xterra has 99000 miles on it and has been a great low maintence truck to this point. The right rear power window made noise when rolling up and down. Remember to use all Nissan parts as well.
I didn't even have it for 24 hours when I was driving to work and almost got rear-ended twice when the transmission slipped on me! This dealership never disclosed that this vehicle had so many recalls on major parts of this vehicle. It hit the the mountain side trees and snow then it rolled over. To shorten the story I phoned an engineer friend and ended up driving the car home. I'm a 63-year-old grandmother who is alone and needs dependability. Original review: June 21, 2018 The Feb 2015 Nissan Xterra drives so nice and it handles itself so well in snow and ice. Rear locker works like a charm.
It also had a two year extended warranty by the dealer. There has been a change with the behavior with sudden braking. Original review: June 19, 2017 The 2006 Nissan Xterra I have was bought used. There was some adjustments the last two times. When I went to pickup my truck they told me my pedel was a little soft. There has been a change with the behavior with sudden braking.
Now I have also read regarding the timing chain. After the Nissian dealer looked it over they said it has to be a bad Master cyclinder. The timing belt and clutch have been replaced, but that is to be expected. Brake light bulbs grow dimmer over time and eventually burn out. I was expecting a lot better but the Nissan Xterra feels like an old ch 7 Jeep. I do not drive on lunar landscape, I. The new models don't have the sleek look through older models have.
Now the clutch need to be replaced after I have it 6 months of me driving it around town. I have a Toyota with over 57,000 miles on it which is manual. Its rubber stoppers are one inch from touching. I went to put jack under car to jack up when I noticed that the suspension looked wrong. The lack of understanding and financial help from Nissan Canada cannot let me recommend them to anyone else. Would never get rid of it.
I also had readings of low pressure when the tires had just been inflated to the proper setting and the light refused to turn off. If someone can offer any help plz let me know. But I also have had lots of mechanical issues that Nissan would never help me fix. The information on our website is general in nature and is not intended as a substitute for competent legal advice. I have over 260,000 miles on it.
I have no theory about what caused this failure, but it could have caused a loss of control and subsequent accident. Thank you for your time. I always maintained that car. All ball joints were checked and good rubbers and bushings good connections solid not damaged and lubricated. I have also had dealers switch new parts off my car and replace with a part from some old car. After replaceing the Master cyclinder Nissian told me I still have the problem.
I thought taking it to the dealership they would have my back and let me know of impending problems, I was wrong. If I was going at a high rate of speed I do not think I would have stopped in time. The contact is in the process of notifying the manufacturer. The Nissan is very comfortable and it is very good looking. He claimed nothing wrong with radiator. It added around 100lbs weight to front but she was a tank at that point and the increased strength per weight amazed others as one night I hit a deer running 70 when seen and after hitting breaks and correcting path to no avail still hit running about 45mph.
