nissan xterra was designed with a cooling system which failed and then allowed coolant to flow into and destroy the automatic transmission resulting in $5,000 in repairs wihich they refused to cover even though admitting that it was their design flaw that caused the problem. Beware of Nissan and their faulty vehicles.
Knowing of the problem they could have notified their customers even if they were not going to pay for the neccessary corrections but refused to do even this, leaving customers in the dark about the design flaw.
they claim customers were not notified because it was not a safety issue. I say it was a safety issue considering that having the transmission fail while pulling into traffic leaves one at great risk of being struck be another vehicle while being disabled.
Monetary Loss: $4986.
