33,000 miles, vehicle in distress
Purchased - NEW
The Nissan Xterra looks like a very nice SUV from the outside.
But if you own one, you know that this vehicle has alot of problems that have not been fixed.
Most common, are the front drive shaft U joints that go.
NTBS has issued warnings as for front wheel bearings which include the front U joints.
No recall issued by Nissan, not under any warranty
Tension arm blew at 7000 miles,
started blew at 22000 miles, now front u joints at 33,000 miles.
Very nice vehicle if you like to restore cars
Don't buy this vehicle years 2005 to 2009
I love how it handles, and I feel good in the xterra. It has masculine lines, and gives me confidence in my surroundings. The gas milage is good if you know how to drive the Exterra. I had a 2006 Exterra and traded it in for a FX35 Infinity which is smaller that i thought. But great car. just not for me. The cost of the Exterra is well worth the money. I purchased another one just this week, and I hope they will still make them in the future.
I have loved nissans for awhile. I have had 7 of them. But they do not back them up and they have horrible customer service now, time to say good bye! Good bye squeaky hood they never fixed, battery drain, oil sensor, fuel sensor, noisy a/c, squeaky seats, it's been fun but it is time to fin a manufacturer that will take care of us when we spend 28k for a truck!
My Xterra is only 4 years old and Ive had to replace the fuel sensor (a year and a half before the recall) and now the radiator. Thank goodness I was able to get the full sensor reimbursement from Nissan but I pretty much had to call and threaten to file a written complaint just to get it. I have always enjoyed having Nissan cars but this is becoming painful and expensive. I wanna hang in there with my "black beauty" but one more major repair and well have to part ways (bye).
Fun to drive. Great in the snow.
Go back to making cars that can live up to the Nissan name.
2006 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
This is a great vehicle that I have put a lot of miles on in a short time (125k in 4 yr) great acceleration and 4 wheel drive will take you about anywhere. The clutch went after about 50k miles, this must be a systemic problem cause I have had 4 other nissans with manual transmissions too and have never replaced a clutch! The driver's seat could be more comfortable on long drives. After owning a maxima, I know what Nissan can do when they put their mind to the task! I would like better gas mileage, but who wouldn't? This vehicle, like all nissans, is perhaps the best value for the money. I will own this truck for years to come. Keep up the good work. Nissan Nation rocks on!
