2005 Xterra Join Date: Mar 2008 Posts: 2 If you are reading this because you have the same problem... FILE A COMPLAINT AT THIS WEBSITE ---->>IVOQ - File a Complaint Apparently this is a problem that deserves a recall! Why should we take the cost of repair when this was an existing problem on earlier models? You'd think that something would have been done in order to prevent a repeat. Here is a copy of my complaint.
"I had 1/4 of a tank of gas and went to fill up. After filling up my gas tank, I turned on the car, at which point the needle did not register the full tank. After driving a couple miles, the check engine light came on. I went directly to the dealer and was told that it was a fuel sending unit/sensor and that it was no longer covered after 30K miles. After returning home and doing research, I went online to x.nissanhelp.com After performing a search, I came across many others who have experienced the same problem. Apparently it has something to do with the fuel sending unit. A similar problem was found on the 2000-2004 xterra models and a recall was performed when the vehicle would stop after not getting any fuel, posing a great danger. It seems that somthing in the unit is faulty and will corrode over time. There is a general consensus that everyone who is having the problem is experiencing the same thing after having the vehicle for over 2 yrs and with around 39k-49k. If this problem existed in previous models, and it was recalled, the 2005-2007 xterras, frontiers, and pathfinders should get this fixed at no charge to the customer!! Why wait for accidents and possible deaths, especially since the problem lies in an integral part of the vehicle. Cost of repair ranges from $300-600."
Please file the complaint if you agree that we, the loyal Nissan customers, should not have to pay for something that is clearly a defect on Nissan's part.
WE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH OUR NISSAN X-TERRA. HOPEFULLY THEY CAN COME UP WITH A RESOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM THAT WAS CAUSED FROM THE MANUFACTURING OF THE VEHICLE. WE CAN ALSO TRY THE BBB ( BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU) AND PUT UP A COMPLAINT TO THEM AS WELL. IT'S PATHETIC THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY OUT-OF-POCKET FOR THEIR MALFUNCTIONS. -NL

The problem is a bad fuel sending unit located in your gas tank. You can get the part on Nissan Courtesy parts for about $75 and the install is pretty easy. I did it myself on my 06 Xterra
