Muddin — One of my favorite cars of all time. Great handling and acceleration. The engine noise is great. One of the best interiors both on comfort and presentation. Horrible gas mileage buyt its a 4 litre so you cant expect more but 16 mpg is so worth the car

Real Utilitiy In Smallish Suv. — Fun, enjoyable, practical, small(ish) SUV. Plenty of power from the 3.7 engine and decent handling. Good ride on highway and off road. Plenty of storage on rooftop for bikes and skis. Throw your dirty sox and muddy clothes in the top bin. Cover your cuts with the first aid kit. Seats can be a little tough after a while and limited quality plastics that can scratch easily. Great sound system in the rockford fosgate with plenty of boom for tailgating. Overall a great car. Have had a for 4 years/50k without any issues.

Fun Family Vehicle Or Great Suv For Off Road And Snow!! — This car has been VERY reliable and has never needed to go into the shop for anything except routine maintenance and oil changes. Decent gas mileage for an SUV 18-20 on average. Plenty of storage room in back and on top!!

Pros

Powerful Engine

Cons

Basic interiors

25

Nissan Xterra — Excellent performance (the engine is 4.0 L and has roughly 280 HP). It's very good to drive into the desert or off road. Fuel consumption is reasonable especially when driving on highway at constant speed (of course do not forget it's a 4.0 L engine!). Interiors are basic. Car price is competitive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Car For Anyone Who Likes Driving A Zippy Car — Excellant acceleration. Handling is really stable. NIce smooth ride. Plenty of room especially in the back! Great interior color scheme and comfortable seats. No rattles or squeaks. easy to clean and love the roof box on top. Sound system is excellant. comfortable driving position with good clear instrument panel; especailly on the steering wheel - useful. It is a really fun car to drive and I am not a young person but feel young in this car!!!
