Notes: For years, Nissan trucks and SUVs have had problems with coolant destroying the transmission. And for years, Nissan has done nothing about it.

The 2007 is no different than the 2006 and 2005. Just avoid it.

I filled up my tank and after setting for a minute idling I noticed my gas gauge was below empty and the distance to empty light was on and reading -----. my original thought was that I didn't tighten my gas cap enough, but I always do. A minute later the service engine soon light comes on. I have a 2007 Frontier crew cab nismo with 67,000 miles. While driving home the gas gauge slowly worked its way up to just below full and the ses light is still on. I have not driven very much more to see if the gas gauge works properly. I have been checking through my extended warranty, which extends out to 72 months or 100,000 and it does show that the gas sending unit is covered. After visiting the following forum:, I noticed many other people with 2005-2007 Nissan Frontier, xterra and pathfinders are having this same issue and the dealers are charging 400-700 dollars to fix. Many of these people are out of their warranty period and have to pay out of pocket. My warranty requires me to pay a 100 dollar deductible. Sounds like this fuel sending unit deserves a recall.

Service engine soon light came on at ~55000 miles. When I filled up my gas tank the level did not register correctly and the ses light came on. Will go off between 3/4 and 1/4 tank, but comes back on each fill up. Found out that this is a common problem on the Nissan Frontier. Mine is a 2007 model.

2007 Frontier Nissan cheap gas tank... what good does a lock gas cap do? the gas tank is made out of cheap plastic which is very easy for a low life person to puncture with only the point of a pocket knife!!! (the repair person, himself showed me with his own pocket knife how it took no strain to steal my gas.) ( I found out the hard way!!! a low life person had no difficulty at all stealing my gas with just the point of a pocket knife. And with the high prices of gas a lot more of us will also find out the hard way!!! ) to replace my gas tank it cost me about $1,000.!!! but even worse!!! my new $1,000 gas tank is just like the old gas tank that was punctured with only the point of a pocket knife, by a low life person who already knows where my Nissan is parked!!!and how easy it was to steal my gas before!!! hey!!! I can't afford a $1,000 every time some low life person steals my gas!!! can you"?" I don't think Nissan can even afford that!!! either!!!
