This SUV's great. Not anything like JD Power's review. Practical, fun, low maintenance. Just do the maintenance and everything works fine. Still a very tight sounding vehicle 5 years and 100k+ miles later. Not too many vehicles can pull that off.
Everything you like if you are drawn to the Xterra look.
The usual - more power, goes through front brakes somewhat faster than normal, better turning radius, air dam on roof vibrates on highway (I took mine off). Mechanically, I replaced two Oxygen sensors and a radiator (small leak) - that's it.
