2007 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #1

May 182011

Xterra Off Road

  • Manual transmission
  • 79,536 miles


My 2007 Xterra stalled on main highway. Got it towed two times in one day. Got to nearest garage did scan no error code. Took the vehicle tried to drive home. Vehicle stalled again in rush hour traffic main highway. Same day! Towed to Nissan dealership. Told me no error code found. Advised me to complete Throttle body service, fuel injector service and change spark plugs for ...$985! before taxes!!! Took my vehicle to independent garage got service of throttle body and fuel injector. Vehicle stalled. Garage kept vehicle for one week. It stalled still no error code. Took vehicle to another garage did not stall for first day then stalled second day and would not start. Mechanic scanned vehicle. Code came up to check or change IPDM. IPDM changed Vehicle drove for four days!!! Guess what!!! Stalled again. Mechanic checked now had error code PO603 ECM internal module Module Memory Error.

Took to Nissan they told me I am at 133, 000 kms now so it is not covered. I basically said BS! this has been happening before the 133,000 (warranty only covers 8 years or 130,000kms).

Now they are trying to blame it on my "after market alarm". Nissan states this is causing computer to 'fail". Nissan needs to admit it has a problem with the computers and stop jerking their customers around!
