Bad paint job and rattles
By Honukele on
2000 Nissan Xterra SE 4dr SUV 4WD
The Xterra is perfect for our one-baby,
two-dog, surf-board, and kayak carrying
lifestyle. Even towed out a stuck
Cherokee once. (4WD, no less!) The
paint job (white) was really bad.
Warranty work was done to repair
serious rust below the radiator. Also
look for rust spots wherever there is s
Also, there is a mysterious rattle on
the front passenger side that the
dealer was unable to fix.
Overall, we like the vehicle, however,
I recommend hunkering down and taking a
close look under the grill at the paint
below the radiator and in other hidden
areas for signs of rust.
Can carry just about anything. Easy
access to back and to rear seats.
