Should I Replace Radiator?
This is my first post on this site, so here goes!
I've had my '07 xterra x for around a year now and I've never had any problems with it. (still don't) I got a letter in the mail from Nissan about participating in the class-action lawsuit xterra owners are filing against Nissan about the radiator leaking engine coolant into the transmission. I've been well-aware of the issue even before they posted a TSB, but it's nice to know the xterra community is trying to "stick it to the man."
Anyway, I was hoping to prevent this problem from happening in the first place to avoid having to pay for a new radiator and tranny once the radiator inevitably switches the fluid. So I was wondering, would replacing the stock radiator with another from Nissan prevent this from happening? I would hate to replace it then find myself out $5000 later if it happens. But if a new $500 radiator would fix the issue, then that would be great!
