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. Notes: The 2004 Nissan Xterra doesn't seem to have any problem trends. The only thing prospective owners should be aware of are the less-than-perfect (but acceptable) crash test ratings.

There are a very few transmission complaints, but nothing like the huge defect that shows up starting in with the 2005 model year.

2004 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 192005

Xterra 6-cyl

  • 13,971 miles


2004 Xterra has been in the shop for various reason. When the vehicle was taken to the dealer for one problem the vehicle was returned to the consumer with a defective right door. The radio also does not work. When the power window was rolled down the consumer heard a grinding noise. The left and right front window regulator have been replaced five times. Both front window run channels warped twice and caused the windows to jump when they were rolled down.
