My 2000 Xterra SE 3.3 liter V6

2000 Nissan Xterra SE 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

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.
Since last posting my review I had engine overheating repeatedly and thought the vehicle needed a new thermastat. Turned out there was a crack in the head gasket. I was given alternatives of a $2000 repair job or "we can put in some sealant and half the time that works." For thirty dollars I had them put in the sealant and ever since then, about six months ago, the car runs perfectly and no longer overheats.
