Xterra 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,400 miles


After filling the vehicle with fuel the gas gauge failed to properly read the correct amount of fuel in the vehicle after filling the tank all the way the gauge stayed at the half full mark and remained there the vehicle was giving the Nissan technician a code reading of 0463 ( fuel level sensor high input) when I went to the dealer I was told this problem was wide spread with one or two Xterra trucks a day coming in for this problem at this dealer alone I was told today by Nissan customer service Nissan will not have a full recall done for this problem saying it is VIN specific but obviously it is not a VIN specific problem and I asked for reimbursement for the repair but Nissan refused to do anything for me.
