    2011 Xterra 55,000 miles. I had an issue in 4wd on the highway, a stutter? Slip? I'm not sure if it's electrical, mechanical? Taking it to the dealer for hopefully warranty work if necessary. Has anyone had anything similar. I'd like some knowledge before going into the belly of the beast.

    Can you deacribe the shudder a little? Did it seem like a transmission slip or a VDC slip? Noise?

    No noise. Tough to describe. A halt? Hesitation. It happened several times. Fortunately or unfortunately we haven't had any snow to recreate it. If say I have 200 miles max in 4wd. Zero off road

    VDC is Nissan's traction control.

    I second this. It still catches me off guard sometimes. Especially in first good snow of the year. Are you sure you saw no light come on looking like this? (Excuse the potatoesque pic.)

    I don't even have that light...or at least I've never seen it. I literally have a light that blinks SLIP if my wheels are spinning.

    Interesting. Mine shows that when vdc kicks in and blinks at me. Turn vdc off and on constant.

    Yeah. I have a VDC light and a slip light. No fancy swerve.
