This car is a great vehicle and a great value with a built to last engine. For someone looking for a small but spacious SUV, this is the car for you.

2004 Nissan Xterra Review
Bought! Like style of the hood and lights. Console is nicer. Looks like no other SUV out there. Sporty look. Doesnt look like over grown station wagon or mini van. Good gas mileage

Love My X! — Overall I have a lot of LOVE for this suv ... nothing like blowing pass a huge 4x4 with my little 2004 Nissan Xterra V6 4wd in a blizzard!!!! I have worked on old muscle cars so the layout of my X is new to me, very tight but I keep on trying .... web pages like this one have gotten me out of hot water and shown me ways around those tight areas .... just changed the starter and was lost just how to work in the tight spot ... page saved the day! Words of advice while changing the timing belt you might as well take care of the water pump and harmonic balancer .... LOVE MY X

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has been a GREAT suv to me ... the little engine that could ... in years past Baltimore Double Blizzard she did excellent! I LOVE my X!!!!

Cons: Hard to work on .... tight spots everywhere! Hard to reach

Tank Like Qualites And First And Second Generation Advantages — I spend a considerable amount of time researching vehicles and found a good deal on a 2004. I was familiar with the Frontier and wanted to stay along that lines for a second "play vehicle". I found that the Xterra provided that Nissan familiarity and the over-heard cover I needed. I found one with 120k and all it needed was some tweaking. I found that the power steering "factory" clamps were leaking and that was a very easy fix. After changing air filter to a performance product improved my gas mileage. Regular maintenance and staying away from things that go bump is the night has me thinking I can easily get this X to last quite afew years.

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

Pros: Built like a tank.. Easy to take care of. Parts are readily available.

Cons: Gas Mileage.. There are no remedies for this you just have to drive slower.

Great For Outdoor Lovers — Surprisingly, the blind spot is not horrible. Two wheel drive makes snow driving a little tricky, but sand bags made driving no problem for the three winters I've had it. This car looks fantastic, but the seats get stiff after a few hours of driving. Perfect for camping, outdoor sports, etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Extremely attractive, tow package and roof racks/ brush guard, fuel efficient for its size (20mpg on average), inside space, leather interior, folding seats, easy to do at-home oil change.

Cons: Seats not made for long distance road trips, two wheel drive

Rugged, Well Built — A very well built car that has worked well for our family since 2004. We hate to be selling but want something with more room for more babies! Wish we could keep it! Appearance is older body style and preferred.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Solidly built

Cons: Not a smooth luxury ride

2004 Nissan Xterra SE Supercharged 4WDReview

Overall:

A Great Toy And Practical Run-about For Both Boys And Girls. — I've recently bought a 03 SE S/C. My boys love it for its looks. Wet braking and traction are dangerously poor due to Goodyear SR-A tires. Will be changing them for Hankook or Goodrich soon (Ouch! the price of 17" AT tires). I'm just 6ft tall but my head touches the ceiling, even with the adjustable leather seat at its lowest. Great quiet ride, nice to drive, useful roof-rack, love the sound system. 11mpg average is ok I guess but the 19gal tank is consequently a bit small. Power is a bit weird : V6 S/C 3.3 liter but only 210hp? Good 4wd but not very spritely. Horribly tiny rear-view mirrors.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, quiet & nice drive, roof-rack, 6cd stereo

Cons: Front headroom, tiny rear-view mirrors, small gas tank, slow take-off
