I just paid off my 2005 Nissan Xterra in August. Mine only has 90,000 miles on it. On Thursday It stopped running and I had it towed to the Nissan Dealership. They completed a diagnostic test and told me that the radiator had leaked into the transmission and had ruined itl. The cost to fix my car...$5300.00. This is not from wear and tear, this is a defect that Nissan is aware of. Any site you check out regarding Nissan transmission, you will find out about the "Strawberry Milkshake" as it is called. My car has never been involved in a wreck. Now I am left with a car that wont run, but its paid off! We are seeking legal advice this week about the situation.Report it
