Issue even nissan cant fix

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

Mine is an 05 xterra se. Never had a problem out of it until recently. One day it stalled on me out of nowhere. It has also completely shut off and came back on as I was driving it. It is kind of scary thinking it will stall at any given time and there is no warning it is going to do it. I've had all of the codes pulled and checked and replaced every sensor as well as the ipdm, battery and the upper catalytic converters but the problem is still there. I have even been to 2 nissan dealerships for the problem and they cant figure it out.i have also had the ecm reset with no luck. Guess I'm stuck with a 14000 dollar paperweight rusting away in my driveway. Never will i purchase another product from nissan

Very roomy, smooth and comfortable ride.

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

I love the large interior size of the 2005 Nissan xterra se. We have plenty of room for our 2 growing boys and our large lab puppy. The interior design is very sleek and easy to keep clean, especially from everyday messes with children. It drives like a champ even with the mileage getting high. Very comfortable and smooth ride. Has added cruise control as a convenience. I would prefer for this trim to also have off road and 4wd.

I like that the whole back seat let down and the secret compartment

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

My car is all white. I did not purchase from a dealer, I went with a private seller instead. I absolutely enjoy my vehicle. Since I do have three children, it is roomy in the back and they are not crowded. The only bad thing about my vehicle is that it needs a catalytic converter which I found out was an easy fix. Other than that it is reliable and gets me to where I need to go.

Versatility and reliability of this vehicle.

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

Xterra has the ability to haul and is built like a truck for multi purpose use. The SUV is very reliable and this is my second xterra would definitely buy again, it definitely has more of a truck feel and lasts longer. I see many xterra still on the road and did not hesitate buying a used one.

Xterra: Overall Reliable Vehicle

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

The Nissan Xterra is comfortable and reliable. Standard features. The lift for the trunk seems to break for many people. Be prepared to buy a new one. Other than that, I have had to do very little maintenance, even though I bought it used. I am overall satisfied with my vehicle purchase.

- Sarah B

I like it and want to keep it for many years

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

The only problem that I have had was with the transmission. Nissan has this issue with certain years and they need to fix the problem. I really like my Nissan and wish that they did not change the body type on the new ones. It black and easy to handle on the road

This vehicle is a fun, great drive.

2005 Nissan Xterra SE

Transmission is currently out. Otherwise, there has been no problems with this vehicle. It runs and drives great. Was always a joy to drive. It is yellow with bigger off road tires. It is very reliable and is easy to take care of. Easy to do work on if needed.
