Shame on Nissan!!
By torrdcs on


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


Purchased at 64000 miles, drove it, loved it, no problems at all other than the tire pressure light after so many miles of consistent driving. Then, at 121,000 miles, boom... transmission failure. Upon further research, it is a NISSAN DEFECT in the radiator that Nissan refuses to address more than a little warranty increase, and even THAT took a lawsuit. I spent $3000+ over a period of 8 months to fix it and it still wasn't fixed. I had to purchase another vehicle to drive while it was down. I ran out of money, so I was forced to trade the XTerra with $3500 of negative equity, totaling near $7000 that I lost on this vehicle, due to Nissan and its ways. NEVER. AGAIN.

Best Features

Creative storage compartments, power, exterior style, visibility

Worst Features

Make a vehicle that lasts longer than 120,000 miles. This is not 1973.
