I have 2007 off road Xterra, bought it 2 years ago from Nissan dealership. So far was OK, just some minor issues, but right now I'm having check engine light on due to faulty fuel level sensor. As far as I have half empty fuel tank, it's showing like empty. It looks like this problem is pretty common for Xterras :-( Also my passenger floor mat is soaked when AC is on which again after some research I have done on this looks like quite common problem...well with these, my main concern now is that famous transmission failure problem with the coolant mixing with transmission fluid would happen eventually. I'm still under extended warranty with my car, but once that is over, and any more issues like that I'm really thinking what would I do with it. I love Xterras and would love to keep it, but if issues would continue...... Now I'm thinking, in that case would it be smart to trade my 2007 in for a new Xterra? (Does this transmission thing continue to happen with new models or not?) or should I go with manual transmission (there might not be this transmission issue, but I'm not that familiar with manuals. I have no clue if Xterra with manual transmission would be any safer choice? There might be some other different issues known for manual transmission Xterras?). So any insight would be awesome on this.Either any experience with new models and that transmission issue or any opinions on issues with manual transmission Xterras. But of course I really hope my car would persuade me that I can trust her and that she is and will be reliable for the future..
