Well, months later I was able to get financed with a used car dealership and gave down payment on this 2002 Xterra. There are hooks inside to tie down anything that shouldn't move during transport. Cleaned, flushed, and replaced factory clamps after inspecting. The transmission cable shifter broke. I have changed out 3 of the coil packs out of 6. I also love the stereo system.
My boyfriend replaced the radiator for me and all was cured. Approximately four years after I purchased it 2006 , the transmission belt broke, and there were. Yet below those speeds, the Xterra remains nicely calm and quiet. Trying to decide whether we junk the car or pay to fix, but I'm not sure I trust this car anymore! If that sounds like a Jeep Wrangler, you're right, and the Nissan Xterra is one of the few vehicles out there that can legitimately claim to be as rugged as the legendary Jeep, just minus the removable doors and roof, or an advanced off-road package like the Rubicon. The Xterra was a sports locker on wheels, and Nissan held the combination. The clutch appears to be way under designed for the power and weight of this vehicle. It has 4-wheel drive which enables me to get around in snow and on back roads with no problem.
I am both upset and lost as to what I am going to have to do to fix all this or if it will be even worth it. I am not convinced the clutch is repaired and will not fail again. After many days of grueling testing, the Motor Trend editors agreed the Nissan Xterra raises the bar in terms of engineering, design, performance and safety. Overall, I think maybe my car is just outdated and I need a newer version because I have had it for so long and it was already used when I bought it. There are hooks inside to tie down anything that shouldn't move during transport. It has 4-wheel drive which enables me to get around in snow and on back roads with no problem. I have in the past had Ford van manual drive with 100,000 miles on it before.
I am able to limp the 1 mile to my shop without power steering, they put the belt back on for me every time without a charge, because they're annoyed with themselves that they can't figure out a fix. After a bit, it managed to and I was on my way again. On the road, it's quickly clear the vehicle no longer suffers from the shakes and rattles that plagued its predecessor. The fender flares let those big wheels articulate up and down without interfering with the body. Shame on Nissan for not fixing the issue! After many years of existence in the market, the new generation of Nissan Xterra promises modifications to keep the positive trend of this model.
All over the world, there are in excess of 700,000 units of this vehicle on the streets. I bought my 2005 Nissan Xterra with high mileage as it was in great condition. There are many things about my car that I would change if I could. Original review: July 4, 2018 I love my Xterra, 2006. At one point, we drove five hours without stopping, a positive indication when it comes to seat comfort and overall driving effort. All other things done on it have been general maintenance.
The body shape maximizes interior space while still making the Xterra maneuverable off road. Sadly it turned into a nightmare. The suspension doesn't let the tall body lean too much in corners, and the steering offers good feedback, too. Fuel gauge not working, leaky radiator which ruined my transmission, catalytic converters gone bad, timing shoes or chain repairs, driver window issues, and more. Nissan hid it from customers and for that reason I will never buy another Nissan and I will discourage every person I know to stay away from Nissan products.
We were at a stand still and were hit from behind and the only thing that was damaged was a bent bumper. I have upgraded the headlights to replace the old faded ones, redid the brake system to high heat for better braking. Big enough inside to accommodate bikes, snowboards, a furry companion — either your dog or roommate — it's further enhanced with accessories such as a hatch tent and pet divider. The Xterra may be a handful negotiating curves, but it's delightful in a straight line. I do not want to spend a fortune on fixing this issue if they do not know what to look for. Original review: May 18, 2017 Bought a used 2007 Nissan Xterra in August 2016 with 127,000 mi.
Wheels sold me on this truck. The good review said you expect as the last run they would get all the bugs out and problems out. Enough space to haul all of my stuff including bikes, tools, bags and groceries. I go many places and still get asked what year it is! There are a total of 13 available Frontier King Cab and 14 available Frontier Crew Cab models. I drive it daily to work, haul art in It, and take it camping. How this did not cause the car to flip or complete loss of steering beyond me.
Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: 4. Overall, it's as if the original Xterra spent the past four years at the gym: same guy, but with more muscle. When I am in other cars that are not my own, I often do not trust switching lanes even when. The pros of this car are many. This is a well built rig with enough amenities for a comfortable ride but definitely not a luxury ride.
My brother drove it before me and he bought it from someone before that. It displays polished refinement at the lower end of the rev range but becomes noticeably raucous rather than simply energetic as the tach needle approaches redline. For this test, we focused on where most Xterra buyers drive their vehicles-the pavement. My 2006 Nissan Xterra clutch went out at 42000 miles on a busy highway. Disappointed that the National Transportation and Safety Board doesn't consider the defective radiator to be a recall issue! It drove perfectly fine the day before. This clutch is undersize for engine. The 4-liter engine has some guts in the midrange, and we noticed that acceleration coming out of a corner is a strong point.
