problem #2

Jan 102006

Xterra 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,500 miles
The vehicle left a couple large puddles while parked. Dealer identified the problem as a completely failed rear shock, due to corrosion, and recommended immediate replacement or risk diminished handling. At 37,500 mi, the 2002 model year vehicle was no longer under factory warranty so both rear shocks were replaced at owner's expense.
