2007 Xterra (72K), dealer recommends change secondary timing chains, this soon really?

Yes... with that many miles. I would However, DEALERS are famous for scamming customers. Try an independent mechanic that you trust and ask them for their opinion. I wouldnt let the dealer do the work anyway unless you just have that kind of cash to throw around.

It would be wise to follow the dealer's instructions. This might be the best fix for the 2007 Xterra (72K). However, you can always ask for second opinion from another dealer.

Timing chains and belts need to be changed BEFORE they break though. Otherwise the cost of repair will be a LOT higher.

Yeah, I have had good luck with Nissan's... but have seen others that they broke on. One guy just thought it was an irritating noise and kept trying to drive. Kind of retarded anyway... He had to get a new car. Lol
