hood paint off & noise underneath
By thomas on
2007 Nissan Xterra S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
1) In less than 18 months, a small portion of the hood paint is off naturally. Bought brand new. 2) When passing a road-bump even with a very low speed, you can hear a noise come from underneath the car. The noise is similar to as if something was loose. On two occasions I took the vehicle to the dealer to correct this problem. The noise was back within a month.
The overall strength of the vehicle.
Improve the dashboard. Improve the hood paint. Correct the noise from underneath the vehicle. Improve the radio. Improve the heating system; presently it takes about 30 minutes to warm up the car.
