Hey, I'm not trying to be a jerk here, and I say this with respect, but what exactly are you bringing to the table here? I'm glad that you want to help, however most of us on here know our xterras like the back of our hand. If you're trying to sell us OEM parts at a discount, we already have a nissan supplier that discounts us parts, and you may be stepping on his toes a bit in that aspect. Do you know about all the aftermarket parts available? Titan swaps? Do you own an xterra yourself? I'm assuming you're in support of us using our vehicles as they were intended to by your comment "see you on the trails!" which I think is a great thing.

Also, as a long time forum member/user, I feel that I can speak for the majority when I say that most of us come here because we want to learn enough to be able to service our own vehicles whenever possible. I (and most) will only bring my car to a dealer for service if it is a warranty issue, or something specific that only a nissan dealer can perform. The rate for labor is just too high for me to justify paying someone to perform work that I can do perfectly well myself.

Again, let me reiterate, I'm not trying to sound harsh here, as I appreciate the fact that you want to reach out and help the community. But my question is really, how can you help us in ways that we aren't already being helped?

I got my X from Passport Nissan...and they screwed me with a shoddy paint job on the rear quarter panel that they won't cover because my warranty is for mechanical.
So now I have a rear quarter panel with super dull clear coat and pitting paint.

Ditto what Blackout said on one of your other posts.

You posted this in 4 separate forums last night in a span of 8 minutes including the for sale forum listing nothing for sale… You’ve had a 2005 for 2 months and now you work at a dealership. How does that make you an Xterra specialist? I see you are also a realtor for Keller Williams, surprised you are not trying to sell us houses as well.

Hey everyone. I just bought an 05 Xterra S 4x4 with 100K mile. The X is really clean but I have recently found out it has some issues that need to be taken care of.

Timing chain whine is the major issue, other stuff is normal wear and tear items, tune up stuff etc.

The whine is just starting and not very loud at all.

I did just do a bypass of the trans coolant lines in the radiator though. I siply switched the two hoses and went from

trans->trans cooler->radiator->trans

to

trans->trans cooler->trans

I am just running a closed loop in the bottom of the radiator. I know this is not a permanent fix, but I wanted to prevent any fluid mixture until I figure out how I want to proceed. New radiator? Extra trans cooler with the bypass? Leave it alone and run it like it is?

For those of you on all the forums I apologize for the repeated questions and posts.... just trying to get as many opinions as possible.

All in all I am excited about my X and plan to make it into a great truck that will keep on rolling for another 100K miles. Glad to be a part of this group,and look forward to meeting some of you.

You didn't scare me off...

The reason I posted the same thread multiple times, is because I did not know which thread was the right one to post in. I thought if I posted it in different threads, more people would see it. That was not the right thing to do, and I am apologize.

The reason I did not reply right away is because I work 60+ hours a week and do not have time to check the forums. That is why I included my contact information in the original thread.

I do also work for Keller Williams. I would never solicit real estate business in an Xterra forum. Only a "Moron" would do that.

I did buy my Xterra 6 months ago, and I did ask for help with some issues I had. That seems to be a talking point in this forum for some reason. So I guess I'm guilty as charged?

I love running trails. I grew up in Colorado doing just that since I was 16 years old. I was hoping to meet some people here that could show me around this area...

I simply wanted to let people know that if they, or someone they knew in the Metro DC area, were in the market for a new or pre-owned Xterra I would love to do what I can to help them out. I never intended to tell you I can do something I can't, or that I am something I'm not.

I can get members of this forum a great deal on a new Xterra. Probably better than most people can get. I have the authority to do that. I can't get Nissan to extend warranties, or get you free service, or parts at cost.

I did have the intention of increasing business for myself. Who doesn't want to do that?

I probably don't know as much about Xterra's as a lot of you do, but I bet I know far more than the average Nissan Sales Consultant. At my dealership I handle all of our Xterra customers. I take a lot of pride in what I do, and work hard everyday to increase my product knowledge to serve my customers. I am the Xterra specialist at my Dealership, and I am not sure why anyone would want to make fun of that?

Honestly, I expected better from this community. I tell all of my Xterra customers about this forum and what a great resource it is. I did not expect name calling and intimidation antics.

I just wanted to let you all know that I would love to help you out in anyway I can. I have access to Nissan specific websites and resources that most of you don't. If I don't know the answer to a question, I can figure it out and get back to you. I was just trying to help you all out if I could, and also build my business. If this was the wrong place to do that, then I am sorry.

I bought it private party... I got a great deal on it, and even after repairs am still under book value. Thanks for the concern though...

I never said I was a Nissan Tech. How many sales consultants do you know that can replace a timing chain? I used the phrase "xterra specialist" as a branding tool. Being that I own and drive an Xterra daily, have had and dealt with Xterra issues, and have gone through/go through Nissan training.. I am an Xterra specialist at my dealership. If you were to buy a new Xterra from a dealership, wouldn't you rather buy it from the guy who owns one himself, has a passion for them, and learns as much as he can about them? Or the guy/lady who could care less what you buy, and has never even driven an Xterra?
