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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

Bought the Xterra last April2015 from Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, the dealership fix the headliner because I told them that it will be a driving hazard in the future, but after 8 mos, the headliner starts to sagging and peeling off. I diid not try to contact the dealership coz I knew what they gonna say, its AS IS and no warranty. I seen some older Xterra having the same problems, I hope Nissan will check this out and maybe this is considered a recall....

I have a 2004 car with a headliner that looks like it came from a 1920's car. The entire headliner has fallen down and it is a safety hazard.
