2007 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 152009


  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Xterra. While driving 40 mph and shifting gears, the clutch failed. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop where the clutch was replaced. The failure recurred immediately after the contact drove eighteen miles. The vehicle was taken back to the mechanic that previously repaired the vehicle and replaced the clutch again. The contact also stated that the heater and air conditioner fuses became inoperable. When he consulted an authorized dealer, he was informed that the fan blower was defective and needed to be replaced. The fuse failed again and the dealer replaced the blower motor twice. The dealer also suspected that an electrical harness may have caused the failure to occur but the parts would not be available until the end of June 2010. The contact called the manufacturer who confirmed that his warranty had expired; therefore, he would be responsible for the repair expenses. The failure mileage was approximately 60,000. The current mileage was approximately 67,000.
