Update Report From October, 2010
By hikercamper on
2007 Nissan Xterra S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Still under factory warranty - timing chain is being replaced.
Gas mileage started dropping, so am having fuel service, including cleaning of fuel injectors and de-carbon valves.
Rear shocks will be replaced with Bilstein shocks.
Have received two notices from Nissan extending warranties on fuel sensor assembly to 60,000 miles and the radiator assembly to 72,000.
Feeling concerned about the mechanical reliability of this vehicle.
Thought the Xterra would have held up better than this.
Bought new and have owned the Xterra for three and a half years.
Appears to be a "solid" vehicle, fun to drive, handles dirt roads well.
Has been enjoyable to own.
Inspires a sense of safety.
Mechanical aspects of this vehicle may be questionable.
Bought it hoping it would hold up, things would not wear out prematurely, but would hold up for the long term.
Wondering what else will happen.
My confidence is somewhat shaken.
