This vehicle has everything we were looking for and more. 4WD, smooth ride, great cargo area, stylish exterior. A fantastic alternative to the ridiculously priced Jeep options.

Great Little Suv — It handles really good, it's very dependable. It is easy to get into and out of, and for a tight suspension, it rides smoothly. The controls are easy to reach and operate, and it is a really nice little suv all around.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great for going from a to b

Cons: I wish xterras got a little better gas mileage

A Very Solid, Affordable, Dependable And Stylish 4x4 —

I have owned 2 nissan xterras and have been very pleased with both of them. straight from the factory it's a very capable and reliable vehicle. I do not recommend buying a naturally aspirated xterra however as they are extremely underpowered. but the supercharged 3.3L V6 has more than enough power. gas mileage is kind of mediocre, think its about 14 town and 18 highway. so in that aspect i maintain they could stand to improve a little bit. but if you don't have a lead foot, they don't do too bad fuel economy wise. they have plenty of ground clearance, space for hauling cargo, full size spare tire that's easily accessable without taking up interior space,and a first aid kit. the independent suspension makes for a very smooth ride and great handling. my xterra has Warn manual lockouts and slightly oversize tires, can't even tell there's a difference. the disc brakes up front offer plenty of stopping power too, forgot to mention that earlier. the xterra will take everything you can throw at it in stride. these trucks make for fun trail trucks or everyday drivers.and for anyone that enjoys modifying their rig, www.purenissan.com has lots of cool aftermarket parts ranging from suspension upgrades/solid axle conversion kits to roof racks and bumpers. in conclusion, I can honestly say that i have been very satisfied and impressed with my xterra, only thing i would change is a slightly more spacious back seat and lockers in the front and rear differentials. but all in all, i would definitely recommend these trucks to anyone looking to purchase a solid, affordable, low maintenance, reliable 4x4.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: very sharp looking sport utility, plenty of power, 4x4, perfect size not too big or too small, lots of cargo space, seats 5

Cons: the back seat is small. really wish they came from the factory with lockers in the front end and rear.

Great Vehicle — I like the space this car offer along with the reliability and gas milage. The car is not big enough for a large family though. Never has maintenence issues. Normal upkeep and this car was flawless. Great vehicle especially the outdoors type.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: very reliable with good gas mileage

Cons: somewhat rugged drive

Great All Around Suv If You Don't Have One Get One!! — Fun to drive but it still rides like a truck. Not very easy to do a tune up on, but is reliable and fun to drive. Plastic front end is fading but thats S. Florida sun for you. The only thing that i don't like is the headliner is falling down. Otherwise it was a great buy and the whole family likes it!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great to carry everything if you have kids and dont want the soccer mom van. Can use it for work and play. Very adaptable for what you are doing. Can even throw a ladder to a surfboard on top!!

Cons: Genaral wear and tear, I would highly recomend this suv to all my friends and family. One dislike is fuel tank is to small.

Good Suv — It is a great SUV, loaded with all the extras that come in the SE package. Has the 3.3L SOHC Supercharged V6 (VG33ER), performace is great on the vehicle. Great for offroading and 4x4 trips. Draw back is that it is not good on gas.... AT ALL!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, and extra features (SE models only)

Cons: Gas Mileage

Its A Good Strong Vehicle, Would Have Prefered Better Gas Mileage, But It Was Consistant... — the vehicle is good it was reliable,fun to drive, bad on the gas but that can be over-looked, it was comfortable, tons of room for just about anything, I never used it to tow, it had rapid acceleration, I was a Vol. Fire Fighter and it always got me to the station.

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

Pros: good reliable vehicle, only had one problem with this car.

Cons: Brake Faliure (ABS Activation)
