#1 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2005 Nissan Xterra
The car was a 2005 Nissan Xterra. I was driving along and check engine light came on. Checked internet and found out that many people had this happen around 50,000 miles. This is supposed to be guaranteed for 50,000 miles and in practice most last a lot longer, but not in the case of the Xterra. Nissan has noticed the large number of incidents but although they have completely redesigned the system they refuse to recall it. Many of the posts here take about the engine conking out at speed which is an unsafe condition. The dealer admitted today that they have seen 4 this month, its becoming a real problem and should be recalled. Dealer quoted me $70. 00 for the quote, $590. 00 for the canister, and $90. 00 for labor. I can't believe that Nissan would know about the bad design, engineer a fix for it, and withhold the fix from the customer, unless they are willing to cough up almost $800. 00 to fix their mistake. This scares me as SUV accidents are usually pretty bad with far more rollovers than regular cars. Please take the appropriate action before someone is seriously hurt. It was Jul. 17, 2012 when this check engine light on issue occurred.

#2 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2005 Nissan Xterra
The car is a 2005 Nissan Xterra. I was driving my car after a long trip, I had about a quarter tank left. I parked my car and when I returned to use it to run an errand I began to drive. My gas tank needle went all the way to below empty then my check engine light turned on as well. I have looked up this issue and found out there were multiple complaints about the exact same thing that happened to me. This is a Nissan issue that should not be taken out of pocket from the consumer. Especially since there is a long history regarding this exact same problem. This check engine light on issue occurred Mon., Jul. 16, 2012.
#3 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2000 Nissan Xterra
The car involved was a 2000 Nissan Xterra. Driving approx. 5 minutes when car warning lights (check engine) and all dash warning lights came on immediately there after, car engine shuts off. Car engine would turn on when started but as soon as you engage the transmission by moving from park to drive, and press the gas pedal, car engine would again cut off. At no other time prior to this did check engine light come on, oil light, or water temperature gage show any malfunction. The professional mechanic that checked my car and ran diagnostic testing can't find any problems. He says he has driven the car but, can't guarantee this will not happen again. This issue happened on 01/17/2012.

#4 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Nissan Xterra
The car involved is a 2007 Nissan Xterra. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5N1AN08U87_. My check engine son light came on, I went to autozone and I was told the error code stated fuel sending unit/sensor. I was told that Nissan recommends you keep a half a tank of gas in the tank. My Xterra guage is very unpredictable 90% of the time even when I fill the tank up the guage doesn't register, and it's stuck on e with the gas light on constantly, which has caused me a single mother of 3 to run out of gas twice. I have done some research and found that there was a voluntary recall, but I've been told that there wasn't. I also live in a city where there is emissions testing which I can't pass because of the check engine light, I cannot receive my vehicle tag, which means I can't work or drive. I would like this sensor replaced at no charge to me because as reading online there has been 53,000 people with the same issue. I would like to know what are my options and the next step I can take to get this resolved. This check engine light on problem happened on December 1, 2011.
