    Suv To Serve As Both A Daily Driver And A Weekend Warrior — This is my third Xterra. I've owned a 2000 and two 2006 Xterras. Two of them were manual transmissions because I used them for my side carpentry work. I needed the X to pull a trailer filled with custom cabinets. My Xterra gets the job done every time I needed it. I currently own a 2006 X model with 150k miles. I expect to get well over 200k miles when its all said and done and will get another after this.

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

    Pros: Solid ride for my commute and weekend fun in the mud!

    Cons: Gas mileage could be better

    Decent, Safe, Reliable, And Sporty — Good vehicle that has a decent resale value, dependable, and maintenance has been very easy. Purchased mine at 88K and now has 126K. Only major repair has been replacement of radiator and coolant bottle. Very powerful engine and drivetrain. 5-disc CD changer was a nice touch. factory remote start and alarm also very nice touches to be considered when making this as a perspective purchase. Bad part is the back seat is fairly narrow. While it will fit 3 fit adults, it will only fit 2 baby seats. There is about 10 inches of space between the baby seats when installed...so not enough for another person.

    Pros: Powerful vehicle with a comfortable ride and plenty of power ports throughout the vehicle.

    Cons: poor fuel economy, small cargo area, and narrow back-seat (only can fir 2 baby seats).

    Aggressive Style — The appearance of the Xterra has a aggressive style look to it. Has the power you need to get through any snow or off road terrain. Amazing in snow with its 4-wheel drive. Lots of room inside for the family and running strong to this day

    Pros: Great room for family, lots a fun to drive, engine is very powerful

    Cons: Fuel Economy

    Excellent 4x4, Will Give The Rest A Run For Their Money. — Nissan's VQ engine has won awards continually from the time it was first introduced, and right up until current. The 4.0 liter VQ engine, used in the Xterra, is just as quick as the VQ used in the Z cars, plus it has a longer throw for more low-end torque. You can't beat this engine. Anyone who drives one will instantly fall in love with the performance.

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

    Pros: Basic part-time 4x4; handles off and on road driving excellently.  Motor Trend Magazines 2005 and 2006 off-road SUV of the Year award

    Cons: Can't think of any.  This is an excellent vehicle

    Wonderful — I loved everything about this car, but it's geting older and it's almost time for a newer model. If I could I would get the same model but newer. Perferably in black or gray also a 4x4 with black interior.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun family car

    Cons: it's old

    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.)

    Pros: Does the Job, Any Job

    Cons: Bumpy ride on rough roads, Narrow back door

    Love The Xterra — Adore it! Love everything about this truck! Interior material holds up against pets and the exterior is sturdy. Has needed no repairs, just regular maintenance. Can absolutely pick up and go when you need/want it to. Love that it has a First Aid kit with it! Perfect vehicle for someone looking for something sized between a pickup and a car.

    Pros: sturdy, great vehicle

    Cons: haven't come across any

    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.

    Pros: goes anywhere, looks great

    Cons: No sun roof like the older models,  could be lifted about 2 inches
