#207 of 2816 I'm Not Sold Yet
Dec 18, 2000 (9:36 am)
I have a 2000 Xterra with 7,000 soft miles on it. So far the rear differential has been replaced and recently the trani is vibrating at cold shifting. There is a loud banging noise coming from the floor board when you hit any bumps. The dealer says it is the parking brake and tried to fix once already. I have been told the differential is a problem with the 2000 models. I have always been a Toyota / Honda guy and have NEVER had any problems with either. Nissan however has yet to impress me with their reliability. I love the truck otherwise. But I just can't get over the major repair problems. If Nissan won't make it right I'm switching back to who I know, Honda/Toyota. Any one had these problems?
#208 of 2816 Placemarks

So it appears we have placemarks again now, as indicated by the "Mark" button next to the time/date stamp. It looks like it might actually be more helpful than the last ones since we can save a description of the post we're saving. I like the (new? or did I just miss it before) subscribe option too.
#209 of 2816 xcellenttrk 'n all Where's the deals

Newbie here still shopping.... I'm in Middle Tennessee and folks here think they own the buyers. I saw a post from Dec 12 about a 4x4 for 23,300 with everything. Anyone else get one like that? If you have could you give me a hint where they are , Dealer names, Cities, States Etc. I woulld really like to get one of these trucks but the
prices ( around 28500 is what I'm given as "best buy") They put me off a little
Thanxs in Advance folks
#210 of 2816 It's been awhile.....

It's been awhile since I've been on the board but the recent snow has led me back here. I LOVE THIS TRUCK!! I have a 2000 EX, 3 pkg. On Sunday I took it through 2-3 foot drifts(of snow, for you in Palm Beach County)about 300 yards long. It was awesome, snow flying everywhere, me just busting drifts. I drive around looking at people spinning tires and I just cruise right past them.
I do have one question for the board. Is it socially acceptable for both me and my wife to have the same type of vehicle? We are considering another Xterra. The only thing holding us back is the gas mileage...... and a bigger engine......

Tried to post something.. and I get to log in... again.. at least I found the new site... which sucks IMO... lets try this again...

Now I'm too tired to rag whoever was bitching about us not talking about the X.... go buy a escape.. quite sure they are ragging their recalls for entertainment.. I'll go back to playing with my R/C

For a second car, I would buy something differrent for a change and for better fuel mileage such as a car (any car). If you are a Nissan fan, I would take a look at a fully loaded altima with all the bells and whistles that could cost at about 20K which has good performance and great fuel mileage.

I think that someone on this board has already bought a second X for his/her spouse. So if you do, you won't be alone. Who cares about socially acceptable? If you love the truck, go for it.
#215 of 2816 I'd go for 2nd X.
Dec 19, 2000 (7:15 pm)
Maybe I'd finally get a yellow one to boot. I'd just dress the two of them differently, one a total play thing for off road, and one to play in the city... just to make life easier, maybe an automatic.... naw. Just wouldn't go for the his and hers plates though.
2xterra is the one with 2 x's.. can't remember who has the PF and the X. Cars just don't cut it for me anymore...I'm impressed enough with my X for a second one, but maybe if we were talkin a 3rd vehicle...
#216 of 2816 I hate this crappy new look!
Dec 19, 2000 (10:40 pm)
i just relogged on to find this crappy new look!
anyway, whoever told me to tie down the cc cable to stop the dash rattle- thanks! a .2 cent zip-tie and 10 seconds outta my life- priceless!
as for my second choice- it wouldnt be another xterra! i would go for something like the md-x (but it looks like a mini-van). i like the pathfinder,tahoe,f-150...2 of the same anything in your driveway? do you want the neighbors to think youre boring?
