Pros

Does the Job, Any Job

Cons

Bumpy ride on rough roads, Narrow back door

55

Fun On Wheels — This Litle bad boy as a V6 265 horse power beast inside strong enough to pull my boat. Ride quality is a little bumpy but it's build on a truck frame and it's build to go off road. Very good machine for the price but i would not buy it new , it's $$$$$. Gas Economy is good considering the HP and the size, and compared to my dodge ram well it's easy to beat!!! The interior is great , comfy seat , lots of room ( to carry baby stuff ) and seats fold flat all the way in the front to carry large stuff.A little dificult to get in the back seat very narrow door, great for kids though. Original radio is Excellent with 6 speakers and a sub under the seat, feal like 18 again LOL. I love this vehicule, it does is job very well and as a lot of power to pass does sunday drivers. I rate this vehicule 9/10

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

A Great Suv To Own — It pretty much goes anywhere. It has great interior looks as with exterior looks. It's a smooth ride with great handling. And it gets good gas mileage.

Lots Of Fun! — Very sporty, lively vehicle. Built on a truck frame, which is nice for a mid size SUV if you actually want to take it off road, which I heartily recommend!

nothing gets in its way

Cons

poor gas mileage

Power House — the xterra is a great vehicle. my husband and I purchased it to ensure safety with the crazy minnesota winters and it has not let us down. in fact it is difficult to make this vehichle slip or perform poorly. it handles, drives, and takes turns really well. the only downfall is the poor gas mileage, if only it were a hybrid!

Pros

Off-road abilities, everything you need and nothing you don't. Hauls people, pets, cargo, and surfboards. Surprisingly powerful engine with alot of low-end torque and a 0-60 in the low 7s.

Cons

It got totalled when a lady T-Boned me doing 50 in a Dodge Intrepid.

My First Ride. — Amazing rig. Excellent performance for something of it's size. Plenty of room inside. Lots of little compartments for all your stuff.
