Paint Problems
By baileyz on
2008 Nissan Xterra SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Other than the problems with the hood paint we love the xterra. The hood has factory damage which appears as light swirls under the clear coat but on top of the paint. There is also environmental damage which appears as a bubble in the paint on the hood, which I am told will come off and leave exposed metal. I feel that the damage came from the dealer as the car sat on their lot for quite awhile before I purchased it. I have spoken to dealer and Nissan and they only offer to repaint. I don't want a repainted vehicle... I would take another hood off of another vehicle or a trade up with paying some of the difference if there was any. Not satisfied brand new and suggesting repaint. UGGGHHHH!
Favorite Features
blue tooth, garmin in the dash, rugged yet practical
Suggested Improvements
Nissan and the dealer should stand behind their product. I told the Nissan rep, Matt, that did not want a vehicle that may look ok now repainted but in 4-6 years would have a hood that looks different from factory paint. His response-the vehicle will be out of warranty then anyway.
