2001 NISSAN XTERRA Tires Sidewall problems & defects.

NISSAN XTERRA Tires Sidewall problems : 1.

I Purchased 4 Firestone Destination Le Tires In 2004 For My 2001 nissan xterra. After 24000 Miles I Noted That There Were Small Pieces Of The Sidewall Missing On All Four Tires – Evenly Spaced Around The Sidewall Of The Tire. On The Rear Passenger Tire, The Largest Missing Piece Was Approximately .75″ On Each Side. I Did Not Take Pictures And I Experienced No Driving Problems With The Tires. I Took The Car Back To The Firestone Store And They Replaced All Four Tires At No Cost. I Am Sending This Because This Clearly Looks Like Some Type Of Defect Since I Was Seeing The Same Pattern On All Four Tires (and Have Never Seen Anything Like That Before). If Other People Are Seeing Something Similar, I Wanted To Have It Noted That I Also Had This Issues. *nm

2001 NISSAN XTERRA Vehicle Speed Control Accelerator Pedal problems & defects.

NISSAN XTERRA Vehicle Speed Control Accelerator Pedal problems : 1.

When Pressing The Brakes, A Small Woman’s Foot Can Apply Equal Pressure To The Accelerator Causing The Car To Move Forward Instead Of Stopping. Both Pedals Are Positioned Paralelly, Only 2’1/4″ Appart. In My Case, I Had The Accelerator Slightly Caught Under The Outter Corner Of My Foot Twice While Pressing The Brakes With No Major Consequences, For The Gas Pedal Snapped Out From Under The Foot Before Causing An Accident. That Was Before The One Day When It Did Not Snap Out, And The Car Was Propelled Over The Shed At The End Of The Carport Where I Was Parking. The Rubber Sole Of The Size 8 Tennis Shoes I Was Wearing Didn’t Yeld The Pedal To Snap Free Before The Impact. Luckily, No One Was Hurt. My Concern Is Something Like That Happening When The Driver Is Stopping For A Pedestrian, And The Endangerment To One’s Life That A Design Flaw Like That Can Cause. The nissan Corp. Customer Representant Who Took My Report Informed Me That This Is The Way The Car Is Designed And The Pedals Can Not Be Readjusted To Avoid Double-exposure.*ak
