    Has anyone had problems with excessive rear tire wear on the 06 Xterra? Ours has 7000 miles and the rear tires are bald.

    I have a 2005 Xterra SE with the Rocford Fosgate premium audio system. The system goes up to a max volume of 31, but anytime I play it higher than 18 the audio cuts off. Nissan has attempted to fix it, but has not been successful. They are now telling me it's not their problem because it is operating how it was designed to. Does anyone else out there with this model have the same problem? Can you play your system louder than a volume of 18?

    Its a known problem, a few owners I know went through it. Have the dealer check the circuit board located under the dash. It basically controls the functions you mentioned. Not too expensive to fix.

    I know you posted this awhile back, but do you ever play your volume on your system greater than 18? If so, do you have a problem with it cutting the audio off?
  • Take your foot off the brake and stop burning rubber on take off. :confuse: 7000 miles for bald tires sounds like heavy operator influence.

    My CD Changer sent me a nice little error code when I tried to play my fav music. I got err code 3. I cannot find out what this means. I am new and would appreciate anyone's input. Thanks

    I have been waiting for a comparison like this. I'm debating between the two myself. C&D did a very similar one a few months back but they included the Jeep Cheorkee, and Hummer H3. In the C&D test Xterra was #1 and the FJ took 3rd behind the Grand Cherokee #2. I think I would be able to get an Xterra for a little cheaper (leftover 05) but I think long-term an 07' FJ will hold its value better. Does anyone know what the aftermarket support is like on the FJ vs Xterra? I know Tacomas and 4Runners typically have better aftermarket support than Frontiers and Pathfinders, but the Xterra is built on the Titan platform so I think down the line a lift kit for the xterra might be easier and cheaper. Does anyone know how similar the FJ platform is to the 4runner or Tacoma?

    Does anyone know how to get to the antenna on a 2004 Nissan Xterra in install the FM Modulator for the Sirius Satellite Radio? Do you get to it from under the hood or by going through the glove box or what?

    I have a 2006 SE, less than 5000 miles. I recently started hearing a squeaking or chirping noise in the back of the Xterra. Took it to the dealer, they said they could not find anything. Now, the noise is getting worse. I'm taking it back on Monday, but has anyone experienced this. It's coming from the rear of the truck and I hear it when I drive over 30 mph. Stops when I apply the break.

    Let us know what they find if anything, thanks.
  • Hey I am looking into buying a new SUV to replace my 04 Honda Accord. The Accord has been great, but I would like to change things up and buy a small/midsize suv that has more power than my 4 cylinder 160 hp Accord and handles like a car. I am considering 5 SUVs: Nissan Xterra, Toyota Rav 4, Honda Pilot, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Ford Explorer. So far I have only driven the base model Xterra and loved the way it drove, but would like to add more accesories. The power from the 265 hp is great and I like how Nissan designed its interior and exterior. I am looking into the SE model in Night Armor with an optional Grille/Brush guard. Is the Xterra the way to go or should I look elsewhere? I am worried about the gas mileage of the Xterra as well. Please let me know with you guys think!

    I have been experiencing the same thing with my 2004 Xterra but have not had a chance to take it in yet. Please let me know if they find out what the problem is. Thanks.

    Hi everyone,
    Whenever I pass over a speedbump at a very slow speed (let's say at walking speed), with an empty vehicle, I can almost feel the xterra going down its full suspension travel, and if I happen to be carrying some cargo back there (let's say a midsize suitcase), or just by having somebody sitting in the backseat, the suspension goes all the way down and a "clunk" can be heard.

    I've taken the xterra to the dealership, and they said the suspension looked normal, and that eveything tested fine according to the specs.

    Has anyone experienced this same behavior?
    This is a 2005 Off-road xterra,

    Does anyone know what Nissan is planning on doing/updating on the 2007 models?

    The plastic frame where the first aid kit on my xterra was loose and causing the squeaking. I simply gave it a whack and knocked it back in. No more squeaking.
