Whenever the failure occurred it was very difficult to take the vehicle out of park. It seemed to stay in 1st gear but wouldn't go into any other gear including reverse. Searched on line and found that there are many Nissan's from 2005 -2007 with this failure. Had the vehicle towed to Nissan dealer for service. Nissan is ignoring the issue. By using this tool, you will be able to get records with description of safety issues for vehicles, equipment, tires and child restraints. The mechanic told me that the failure is a known problem and that it occurs with no warning.
Then update your shocks and you know that truck will probably go until it drops. As A Result, Consumer Lost Control. The dealer informed the contact that it was a common feature on all their vehicles. You'll bend the ears and the clips will not seat. The torque converter has been replaced and the Xterra drives much better now.
Mar 26, 2003 While Driving At Any Speed Transmission Slipped. I just feel the vehicle was responsible and there was something that went wrong. After a week of pressuring for a response, they finally told me they would not cover the repair and that if I had made all of our repairs at the local dealer that maybe they would have discounted the repair. It was only me and the vehicle involved. I suspected the rear u-joint, and that's what it was.
Nissan knows about this problem and has extended the warranty on the radiator by 20,000 miles to 80k from 60k but they refuse to issue a recall even though this problem affects all of their mid-sized trucks and suvs manufactured in 2005. I bought a voltmeter, measured it to be 0. The service dealer was not able to find the problem. As a result, consumer lost control. We had all the service performed at the local dealer with the exception of 4-5 oil changes that were performed at jiffy-lube.
The failure and current mileages were 190000. I never regained control then rolled down a hill off the highway. My xterra drives like a new car again!

Vehicle was purchased on 20020601. The failure occurred on multiple occasions. This makes me think it is not a tranny problem, the odds of getting 2 transmissions with this exact problem are huge. I felt since they clearly had a design flaw in the radiator hose connection that could cause the transmission to give out and be dangerous it should have been a recall issue. All 4 tires had to be replaced and all 4 tires are going bad again. This problem is chronic on these vehicles.
Manufacturer was notified, and informed consumer that this vehicle was not covered under recall. Pink indicates water entry, which is very bad. If you keep up with the truck your all good. Obvious there is something wrong with my vehicle if they replaced the tires once and now 4000 miles later the new tires are bad again. I Never Regained Control Then Rolled Down A Hill Off The Highway.
Stay on top of things and she wont let you down. I Have Contacted nissan With No Luck. Today we received a letter that the car may be included in a recall campaign. After an investigation by Nissan, they've concluded that the crankshaft had broke and thus the engine would be rendered useless. Vehicle was using Cruise Control. I am truly disappointed with how Nissan treats their customers and will never purchase a Nissan vehicle again!.
