  1. I'll get some taken and post them up soon. Cheers, Dave
  2. Thanks guys! Well, I found the problem and it was absolutely nothing. I had done some research and (like adamzan thought) believed it would be the steering stops. But it wasn't. All it turned out to be was that a section of plastic cowling underneath the front bumper and in front of the tire had a slightly out of place support rod, so the lip was hitting the tire slightly when it was turned all the way. It sounded pretty nasty but was nothing. I moved it back in place and because the tires are a bit oversized, trimmed off some of the plastic lip (which can't be seen) on each side to give them some more clearance, and all is good. I'm a happy camper!
  3. Well, I ended up buying it. And I appreciate everyone's help!!! Though I'm thrilled overall, a weird thing started happening this morning that kind of tarnishes the purchase ... When I test drove it, everything was great. I did figure 8's forward and reverse, drove it in all 4WD and transmission ranges, etc. I drove it home no problems. However this AM while backed out of my driveway, with the steering wheel turned all the way to the left, a grinding clunking sound came from (I believe) the pass side front . It was pretty loud. It only does it while backing and with the steering wheel turned all the way to the left. Anyone have any ideas what this could be? And is it just dumb luck that it happened right after I bought it? That seems hard to believe so I wonder if I just didn't turn the wheel all the way during my test drive and the seller was hoping I wouldn't. Not that that matters now I guess.
  4. KBB shows Excellent: $9,195 Good: $8,595 Fair: $7,845 So if it's truly in excellent shape, I'll be getting it at the "good" price. So it seemed pretty good to me. Edit: Edmunds has ... Outstanding: $8,819 , Clean: $7,905
  5. That's good to know. I'll be driving it and inspecting it this evening. So ultimately it will hinge on that.
  6. That's kind of a bummer. Though I suppose if it get's better mileage that way it's a wash as far as the difference in fuel price goes. It almost is making me reconsider if I want it because of that though. It's a yellow 2002 SE Supercharged with 91,000 miles - with tow package and brush guard. 6-Disc Rockford Fosgate Stereo with steering wheel controls, Python Alarm with Remote Start, Brush Guard, Tow Package, Newer BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires. In excellent condition. For $8,200 Does that sound like a good deal?
  7. I found out this is the supercharged model. Does anyone know if it's vital that premium gas be used? I know Nissan recommends it. Would mid grade be OK?
  8. That's a great idea but I don't have access to one. Maybe I'll go buy one. Thanks!
  9. Thanks!! This is great info. And I did look and there were a few recalls on the 2002. I wouldn't have thought to look that up.
  10. Hi all, This Friday I'm going to look at a 2002 Xterra SE. Pretty much loaded including tow package and brush Guard. Great shape from what I can tell in the photos. He is asking around $8,000 with 91,000 miles. Is there anything I should look for with this vehicle in particular that might be a problem area. Any parts that are prone to going bad or rusting, etc? Any guidance will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  11. Thanks guys!! I'll try those things and report back with my results. Cheers!
  12. I hadn't thought about it being the lift gate since it has it's own 'ajar' light. Interesting.
  13. I used the search feature before posting this thread but unfortunately could not find anything. Interestingly though, it has now stopped on it's own. Though I'm expecting it to start again.
  14. I tried that with a wad of duct tape on both front doors to no avail. Maybe it's a different door. It's odd that rolling the window down an inch will stop it.
