I have the same problem. I notice it mainly when I step on the gas. My xterra is a 2000 with 240,000 miles on it. Other than this small problem its been great!

I have a 08 that vibrates at idle in or out of gear but it seems to come from the front of the vehicle and is intermittent. Sometimes the whole vehicle shakes and seems to be worse when the A/C is on. The dealer replaced the crankshaft pulley saying it was warped but that didn't make any difference in the vibration problem. I need to get it back into the dealer as the warranty is up in 6k miles. The local dealer hasn't been very good at servicing problems in the past especially when it is under warrantly. Anyone else have the vibration coming from the engine area??l

I recently purchased a 2009 Xterra and am experiencing the same issue with the intermittent vibrations sounds. It has not occured to me that the air conditioning running may have been a factor. I have e-mailed the Nissan Customer Service and am awaiting a response. Truck was purchased with 28K.

I just bought a 2010 Xterra Off Road last week and on a long road trip I noticed a high pitched squeak in the rear of my Xterra. I had it loaded with stuff but it was making the noise before that. I tried to get my rear passengers to pin-point the noise but they couldn't. The noise ended up going away and hasn't come back but now I'm afraid it will.

I have an 07 Xterra with 43,000 miles on it. I hear a vibration in the front end when it's shifting between low gears (especially after I'm stopped at a light). I just bought it in November and haven't used the AC so mine's not mutually exclusive to the AC being on.
I also have the high-pitched squeak coming from the rear end when I go over bumps (no matter the size). It's driving me crazy. I am taking it to the dealership this week to get looked at. Anyone have any luck of finding out what's going on or getting their problem fixed?

I have an 08 Xterra with 35k on it, I started hearing a vibration noise coming from the front of the vehicle mainly when accelarating or changing gear.
What I found to be the problem with mine was the exhaust rattling. There are several points where there is an exhaust shielld above the exhaust pipe and the pipe is attached to the shield with a steel band. The In two of these places the steel bands had rusted away causing the exhaust pipe to rattle against the upper shield.
I just bought a couple of hose clamps from the hardware store and tightened swapped them for the rusted steel bands. I hope this is the same problem some of you are having, because it is a quick fix.

Exactly the same problem with my 08 Xterra (45k) - found a broken steel band (rust) this morning. I guess the pipe rattles against the metal shield (pretty noisy)
Do you know - do I need to put some damp material between the shield and the pipe before I tighten the pipe with the hose clamp? Anyone else did this? Thanks -
