2005 Nissan Xterra SE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I love the car but will never purchase another Nissan.
I bought the car new and starting at 15k miles the repairs started and never ended:
tensioned assembly replaced three times, all brake assemblies replaced at 25k miles, transmission and radiator replaced due to fluid peeking into the transmission, cracked transfer case, bad veil and oil sending units, abs assembly on the driver side completely failed, coolant leaking onto passenger side firewall.
Fortunately I purchased the 100k extended.
I have 105k miles on the car.
My total out of pocket for the past year would have been $18k if not for the warranty!!
That is a new car!
Nissan also damaged car during repairs and refused to pay.

Best Features

Stereo, look, handling, spacious interior, acceleration
