Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #2

Xterra 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,995 miles


Fuse #11 which protects the alternator/charging circut and 4WD/atp warning light circuts kept blowing. When this fuse blows the alternator stops working and the vehicle then runs off the battery. And when the battery dies 30 minutes later so does your Xterra!

Nissan Xterra's window regulators are faulty. I had two of mine replaced in 2 years and the third one just broke. Nissan admits that this is a common complaint but is not recalling the equipment. I am out of warranty and I will have to pay for it if I get it fixed. Every Nissan Xterra user has had this problem and atleast 2 window regulators have been replaced on each 2001 models. Its time Nissan recalled the equipment.
