  • 73,355 miles
Gas in car was at a 1/4 tank and service engine light came on went and filled tank up and gas gauge not working after driving the car twice the light went off and the gauge was working 3 days latter same issue. I do see where there was a recall for the 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009 Xterra for the same issue but they failed to recall the 2007 year for the same issue. This should be recalled and fixed.
