Radiator trouble with car?


Asked by May 10, 2013 at 05:21 PM about the 2006 Nissan Xterra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have purchased a 2006 Xtera offroad vehicle (auto transimition) with 63K miles.  I heard from a friend that this car and the 2007 have problems with the radiator fluid leaking in to the transmission.  Is this the case?  If so, what would you recommend?

I would keep a eye on the transmission fluid level and condition. I would also find a Nissan forum and ask other owners. If it does leak, it would be in the radiator. Maybe it's a known problem with the radiator or maybe it's a rumor started by a few that have had radiator failures.

There is nothing you can do to prevent it. Just be informed and ready to act in fixing it if in fact the rumor is true.
