  • 8,247 miles
We purchased a new 2009 Nissan Xterra on June 5, 2009. While driving the vehicle, the following dashboard warning lights come on for no known reason: Brake, ABS, slip, tire sensor & vdc. Odometer fails to operate, mileage needle returns to the start position and does not show speed, and fails to register miles covered when the odometer fails. Cruise control fails to operate. The vehicle has been brought to the service department of the dealership on 5 different occasions. The vehicle was brought in for electronic failure with the following odometer readings and dates: 849 on 6/22/2009, 1374 on 7/7/2009, 4082 on 8/10/2009, 8123 on 11/9/2009 and 8247 on 11/24/2009. The following repairs were made: Replaced ABS actuator, replaced odometer, replaced electrical harness and replaced electronic computer module. On the last occasion, the vehicle was brought in with dashboard warning lights on. Service department at the dealership is unable to identify or fix the problem and instructed us to pick up the vehicle without providing any service or repair. The warning lights and failure of operating systems make this vehicle unsafe to operate. The warning lights are an indication of the failure of brakes & tire sensors. This vehicle is not safe to drive when the electronics fail.
