#1 of 199 Xtera clutch problem.
Jan 15, 2008 (7:35 pm)
My 2006 X needs a new clutch, they say, at 23000 miles. No excessive driving habits. No fluid leakage detected upon visual inspection. What's up with that?

I have a 2006 xterra offroad. I am having the same problem, clutch replacement required at 40,000 km (25,000 miles). Again, normal City driving, no offroading. Nissan Canada customer relations won't budge on the warranty or providing good will help on the cost. Seems to me like a classic "premature wear" on the clutch material, rather than normal wear... will likely sell the truck ASAP and never buy Nissan again due to the below standard parts and horrible customer service relations.

The end of the matter is that Nissan sucks in this situation. 23000 miles and the Xterra needs a new clutch. I neglected to say that the steering column had problems within months of our purchase. I got rid of the vehicle and went with a Jeep. Nissan is off my list forever. Perhaps when the truth comes out that Nissan quality is going down, down, down I will at least have some personal satisfaction. Maybe I just got on board to late. Once bitten twice shy.

i bought my 2006 nissan xterra last feb2007 and just this weekend after drinving the car for only a year and 2months with 11,000. miles the clutch is worn out.
the dealer said that the cost for the replacement of the clutch is $1700 and not under warranty.
i just have a had time believing that i have driven so terrible to have to repace the clutch. I've been driving for over 15 years manual cars and never had this issue.
i just feel at the mercy of the dealer since they told me that they had never had a nissan xtrerra with a clutch issue....WTF
#5 of 199 Clutch fails at 16K nissan won't cover it under warranty
Apr 28, 2008 (1:15 pm)
I have been driving manual trans. for over 35 years, including 2001 and 2003 Xterra. the 2007 I purchased has a clutch failure at only 16k.
no city driving,
over 10 years experience driving xterra manual trans.
over 35 years experience driving manual trans
and nissan wont pay for new clutch -- not even a dime!!!
needless to say, i will never buy a nissan again.

Please let us know when you find something on this Marco. I've been lucky so far with my '06 Frontier 6-Speed at 13,500 Miles and have had no troubles. But, I've read on some Frontier forums that owners have had the same sort of clutch failures despite conservative driving.

I also have a 2006 Xtera and the clutch went at 35,000 km. My Ford Explorer clutch lasted 220,000 km so I wasn't expecting to replace the clutch this early. Today at 40,000 km, I was told I need $750 in brake work. I called Nissan Canada today and they said if there are enough complaints, they will do a recall.
#10 of 199 Premature clutch failure on 2006 Nissan Xterra
Nov 12, 2008 (4:53 pm)
My clutch failed at 23,000 miles. I recently had it repaired at my expense since it is considered a wearable part and not covered under warranty. I am having a hard time believing this part failed due to my driving behavior. I travel mostly over flat lands, do not down shift to slow the vehicle, do not hawl loads. The car has not been abused.....Nonetheless I've driven 2 different makes also manual transmission for a total of 15 years before the Nissan and never had a clutch failure.Sounds shockingly similar to your experiences. There is a trend here that Nissan must address. I hope all have voiced their concerns to the Nissan Consumer Affairs thru Nissan Official site under the contact us tab. I suppose this is the right place to start.
