            Trade it in at a dealer...let them deal with it. Insurance uses rule 80% of value for a repair is usually a total loss.

                I had a 2006 Xterra, that I drove for 5 years and 100k miles. Luckily, mine was a manual, so it didn't have the problems the autos have. Only thing I ever had to do to it was tires, and brakes one time. I drove that thing hard, and it kept wanting more. One of the best vehicles I've had. So, they're not all junk...you just have to know what to look for in one.

                        I also have an honest mechanic here in Melbourne who told me my Nissan X-trail's cylinder head issue will come back even if we fixed it. So I got rid of it quick. Ahh Nissan!

                          My 2003 Buick LeSabre transmission was going out. I really didn't want a car payment. But I had no choice but to get another car. To fix the trans would be more than it's worth.

                                This is why I wish I wasn't too much of a car buff or wish I'd have the guts to pick something I don't even like that much for a daily driver. At least that way I can't get too emotionally attached to it and will always have no problem doing the logical thing at all times, which would be whatever a true honest mechanic like Scotty would tell me I should do, for my own good, and think nothing of it and move on, honestly.

                                                        Nissan transmission problem? Not surprise at all. People should feel silly if they're not aware of this epidemic on Nissans over the last 15 years especially CVT. The only thing good with Nissans are their puck up trucks, had a 2005 frontier with almost 200k miles, all original. Had murano and xterra both tranny needed replacement, I'm done with Nissan, same goes for Infiniti which hits your pocket the hardest. Scotty is 100% correct when it comes to Nissan.

The first trans ran for 177k, so even if you get only half of that same mileage out of the new trans it's still money fairly well spent.
                                                                  Now of course, I agree with Scotty that in this particular case, with a car known for having transmission failures, it definitely would not be a good idea to repair and keep it. Too risky that it could go out again before you got your money's worth out of it.

An when dealing with dealerships service department they lie through their assessment of your vehicle. The average dealership today employs parts changers Not mechanics.

                                                                            I think you should run for President Scotty of the United States. I'll probably buy a 2020 Outback XT even though the transmissions have issues. As it's the most bang for the buck imho. It'll be my last vehicle n my 99 f250 7.3l still is a beast. I drive slowly but mileage I get 22 mpg on the hwy at 60 mph. Thanks for great insight on vehicle's.

I have 2 of them, a 2008 and 2010, both are PERFECT! AND THEY HAVE EXCELLENT RESALE VALUE!!! FYI, I met a guy in CA, he had a 2002 Xterra with 360K miles and he NEVER CHANGED THE TRANS FLUID!! The truck ran perfect!

The JATCO trans in that is not a bad transmission the problem with ‘05 to about ‘10 was the radiator failing and mixing coolant with the transmission fluid. Nissan dropped the ball in recalling them or fixing them after the fact. Many transmissions don’t get to 177k.....
