#2810 of 2815 08 xterra 2 wd bottoms out over bumps
May 18, 2010 (12:29 pm)
I live in Mexico and their roads are full of speed bumps. My xterra seems to bottom out when I go over these bumps without a load. If i am carring passengers in the rear I almost eject them from their seats. How do I fix it??????
#2811 of 2815 X Model? or not?

I'm planning on buying a 4x4 Xterra and I have a question for the experts. I'm thinking of getting the X model and adding a couple of features like rock sliders and beefier (is that a word?) skidplates for some off-roading. My question is- is there anything on the more pricey models that I really ought to have that I will miss? Should I spend the money for a more-equipped Xterra?
Also, how many people think they are going to take it off-roading and found out they really don't- or nowhere near as much as they think they will?

Hi, guys. I posted this question on the prices paid and buying experience in this forum, but I thought I'd post my question here also. My father just purchased a 2011 Xterra Pro-4X, and the accompanying DVD that allows you to get familiar with the vehicle showed that the trip meter had the Distance to Empty, gas mileage, etc.
But when I checked on my dad's vehicle, it does not have this. It only has a Trip A and a Trip B. I was wondering if anyone knows when this feature was discontinued on the Xterras, and if so, if it was on all models of Xterras or just the SE and the Off Road. Thanks!

What fuse controls the lights for the climate control. My lights for that section of the dash board have been out for a while.

#2815 of 2815 Re: 6-speed Manual Xterra tranny stick Shift Issue [uywash]
Jun 25, 2012 (8:03 pm)
I see that nobody got back to you. I am having the exact same problem with the shifter sticking up or down seemingly randomly on my '05 Xterra. I have had it apart twice to clean and lube the nylon guide assy. Seems like it is happening when vehicle warms up.
Did you ever find a solution to this problem?
