NISSAN XTERRA Service Brakes, Hydraulic problems : 4.
The Brakes Of My Wife’s 2000 xterra Failed Due To Poor Engineering. Fortunately It Happen When My Wife Was Driving At Low Speed On The Back Road We Live On. The Hard Line From The Master Cylinder To The Front Brake Is Routed Past A Manifold Heat Shield. The Line Is Installed So It Rubs On The Heat Shield. The Heat Shield Eventually Cuts Into The Line Causing It To Fail. The Car Is At A Local Repair Shop Where A New Brake Line Will Be Installed. *tr

I Recently Purchased A 2000 nissan xterra. While I Seldom Use The Emergency Brakes, I Needed It For Parking On A Hill That Particular Day. I Discovered That The Brakes Did Not Grab As They Should. Upon Investigation, It Was Determined That A Pulley Within The Brake Drum Assembly Was Seized. The Materials Of The Pin And Pulley Did Not Appear To Have Any Corrosion Or Abnormal Damage. I Have Since Learned That There Are Quite A Few Other People On The Internet Who Have Experienced This Issue. As A Matter Of Fact The Dealership Was On Back Order For The Entire Rear Brake Assembly With A One Month Lead Time (p/n: 44000-7z2000, 44010-7z200). I Have Also Written To nissan With No Response. I Strongly Feel That This Is The Result Of A Design Error By nissan Where The Parts Seize Over Time. Because This Is A Safety Related Device, It Should Be Investigated And Addressed. My Truck Is Currently At The Dealership For Repair And I Have Requested For The Defective Parts To Be Saved As Reference. *tr

Abs Light Comes On Intermittently. Seems To Happen After Heavy Rain Or When There Is A Lot Of Moisture In The Air. Vehicle Has Been Back To The Dealer 3 Times In The Last Month. At First They Told Me It Was A Defective G Sensor. That Was Replaced For Approx. $600. The Second Time It Went Back, The Dealer Stated That The Sensor Needed To Be Recalibrated. It’s Currently At The Dealer For The 3rd Time. The service Reps Have Been Very Polite, However I Did Pay $600 And Have Been Back To The Dealer Twice Since Then. *tr

I Was Driving My 2000 nissan xterra On A Ohv Trail When I Lost Brake Pressure And Had My “brakes” Light Come On. After Investigation, I Found That My Brake Line Had Rusted Through Where The Line Passes By The Passenger Side Exhaust Manifold. The Spot Was Completely Hidden Underneath Where The Oem Had Placed A Protective Heat Wrap On The Line. The Heat Wrap Was Saturated With Water And Therefore Promoted The Line To Rust Through. This Caused A Loss Of Brake Fluid To Power To My Rear Brakes. I Had To Remove The Brake Line From The Anti Skid Controller Cut It And Clamp It Off. I Refilled The Master Cylinder And Was Able To Regain The Use Of My Front Brakes And Get The Vehicle Home. I Will Be Replacing Both The Front And Rear Brake Lines From The Anti Skid Box To The Distribution Point And Having The Brake System Purged And Refilled. The Old Parts Will Be Kept. *tr
