Review of the 2000 Nissan Xterra

  • A truck-based compact ute for those who actually plan to use it like it's featured in Nissan's TV commercials.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rugged looks and capability to match, excellent brakes, lots of room inside, standard ABS.

  • Cons

    Based on a truck, it steers like a truck (read: numb).

  • What's New for 2000

    A truck-based mini-SUV, the athletic new Xterra competes with several smaller vehicles built on car platforms.

My 2000 xterra se 3.3

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Nissan Xterra SE 4dr SUV 4WD

I bought this car almost two years ago and have put 15,000 miles on it. It is great in snow and ice in 4 wheel drive mode. Easy to shift from 2 to 4 wheel drive system. The 3.3 liter V6 is adequate, not fast, but you don't get an SUV for speed. Valve gaskets had to be replaced at 154K. Only complaints; no dashboard clock and dashboard instruments are very dark. On a sunny day if you're wearing sunglasses you can't read them unless dashboard lights are turned on. Vehicle is very rugged. I actually think this 1st generation Xterra looks nicer than the 2nd generation. 4 full doors and great visibility make it more practical than the FJ Cruiser. I would highly recommend this vehicle.
