Welp.

Sorry I disappeared.

Found a 2010 xterra, got it for 3800. Thought I was set.

In the first week, the radiator blew, mixing coolant and trans fluid. Saved the trans, bypassed the radiator, got advice and had a test drive from some transmission guys who said I had pulled it off... and then the head gasket blew.

Currently sourcing a new engine and getting ready to pay to have that done.

It's been a rough week. Details here: https://www.thenewx.org/threads/smod-and-more-on-2010-x-starts-30-hours-after-i-bought-it-figured-yalld-want-to-know-want-to-hear-a-story.278120/

I had done my research. Supposedly 2010 was supposed to be a non-SMOD year that was safe, and lots of people report their engines going to 200-300k without any problem. I tried to push the engine while test driving it as much as I could with the dealer in the passenger seat. I also read of people towing heavier loads than I was towing for 20k + miles without problem.

Anyways. Guess **** happens. First time buying from a used car dealer, guess the experience lived up to their reputation.

Back in a couple weeks.


I knew you were in trouble when you were looking a 4.2 fords. Horrible trucks!! Sorry you had troubles. Nissan's are good if maintained.


2019 Chevy 1500 RST 4x4

TT is yet to be decided
