2006 Nissan Xterra SUV S 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

First I have to say, I love this truck. There are few things I would change if given the opportunity. I've put a lot of miles on this vehicle-56,000 & I keep it in the garage when at home. The paint around the windshield is peeling off. Not cracking or chipping--peeling. Not just the clear coat or even top coat, but base coat down to bare metal. Apparently, Nissan & Co think it's perfectly normal for paint to peel off. Sadly, Nissan support & customer service is greatly lacking principles and integrity.


Best Features

Love that 6 speed & power


Worst Features

A decent warranty on paint. Customer Service/Support.

2006 Nissan Xterra SUV SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this 2006 Exterra SE new November of 2006 because of the reviews and ratings on this site and the awards it garnered. I'll admit, it is a fun vech. to drive. But what a disappointment! Replaced tires at 20,00 miles. Replaced the front brakes (Rotors as well as pads) twice in 51,000 miles. Paint is poor quality showing rust specs and flaked off the running boards at in less than a year Just replaced the fuel sensor. Worst of all, tranny and radiator self destructed at 51,000 miles. Nissan refused to honor the drive train warranty. The excuses were pathetic! Cost to repair this piece of junk was outrageous! On top of that, we still owe $5,200 on the purchase price. Back to Toyota for us!


Best Features

Style, power, cargo room


Worst Features

Use better materials. Institute better quality assurance in manufacturing. Redesign the transmission cooling system and use a better radiator. Honor warranty terms and insist that Consumer affairs representatives be accountable for their actions.

Review

I'm very pleased with my 2006 Xterra. However I'm not pleased with the cost of having to replace a faulty fuel sending unit which Nissan has not recalled on this year of Xterra but has recalled the older versions. I would think that if Nissan is receiving the same types of complaints regarding sending units that the least they could do would be to replace them.

2006 Nissan Xterra SUV X 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had this vehicle for over three years now. Love the power, handling, 20mpg with standard trans, great off road. Many have had premature clutch wear so I would not buy another stick. Most of the parts for this vehicle including engine is not Japan. Wish honda made old school suv, but for now xterra seems to give best bang for buck. 4runner much more expensive, and most of their parts are also not Japan.


Best Features

Unmatched horsepower, full truck frame, ride/handling.


Worst Features

Plastic scratches easily. Fix the weak clutch, improve customer service.

Review

2006 Nissan XTerra - At 35K+ miles fuel gauge faulty. After filling up gas, gauge reads empty. Nissan is NOT issuing a recall for the 2006 models. 2000-2004 have received a recall for the same problem. Cost to fix is approx. $500.


Best Features

Body


Worst Features

Manufacturer should take responsibility and fix faulty fuel gauge.
