I love my Xterra! There is plenty of
room for me in the front and passengers
like the stadium seating in the back.
The rear seats are versatile! But they
rattle when you drive. My airbags
didn't work in an accident. My seatbelt
worked and left a red mark on my neck
and chest. I have had a recurring
problem with the seatbelt light coming
on. I have tried to repair it several
times. The roof rack would smack
against the roof and was really
annoying, after the rubber tabs blew
off. Of course, the gas mileage is not
the best with any SUV, but, since the
gas prices have gone up, I feel like I
spend most of my time at the pump.
I love the Solar Yellow, the body
style, the smooth (not trucky) ride. It
is fun to drive and you can fit alot of
cargo in it.
The seatbelts need work. The rear seats
rattle when you drive. I have had some
staples replaced to recover some of the
seats. The gas mileage could be
improved, but that is apparently an
acceptable part of owning an SUV.
