2010 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 222014

Xterra 4WD 6-cyl

  • 83,800 miles


I was traveling at 25 (no more than 30) mph when another vehicle collided with mine. The other vehicle did clip the middle 1/3 and entire passenger side of my Xterra. The hood was crushed to the first third of the front passenger wheel well, transmission and radiator fluids were leaking from the SUV, grill was obliterated, front passenger headlight was crushed into the battery (that leaks due to the accident), and the front bumper was impinging the front passenger wheel from freely moving. The airbags should have deployed, but did not. The vehicle is not drivable and had to be towed. I am filing this complaint because I believe that the severity of impact should have resulted in airbag deployment.

Vehicle is just over 2 years old and the entire back bumper already has rust/corrosion, this is a common occurrence with Xterras but its so rusted if impacted in the rear it has the potential for the rear bumper to fail. And Nissan wont cover the bumper in warranty even extended $2000 warranty. Vehicle has been rusting slowly over the past few months.
