2001 Nissan Xterra SUV SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is the perfect first car for anyone. The interior is not the nicest, but with a teen, that's usually not a problem. The engine could be improved but it's enough for most people. You can't go wrong with a Nissan.


Favorite Features

The exterior's sport look. This is a nice looking car. The 6 disc CD player is cool as well.


Suggested Improvements

The air conditioning went out once, and Nissan replaced my windows free of charge before they stopped working.

2001 Nissan Xterra SUV XE 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This was my first time owning a SUV. I fell in love until I had to fill the gas tank. The gas mileage on this SUV is very bad for a 4cyl vehicle. There is no get up and go. How could you have a visor without vanity mirrors? Take this SUV and start over from scratch. And next time have a female design it.


Favorite Features

Height of vehicle. I am no longer afraid of driving in front of 18 wheelers or other SUVs with their headlights in my eyes.


Suggested Improvements

GAS, GAS, GAS.

2001 Nissan Xterra SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Well I have had my 2001 Nissan Xterra for about a year and I have to say that this SUV is great to drive. I was very surprised by the fact that the braking response is excellent for an SUV, there is not that much of a delay. In the snow it has been fearless. My only complaint, like every one else, is the gas mileage is horrendous. I get no more then 250 miles on a full tank...and that is a combination of both city and highway driving, but mostly highway miles. But hey any of us who buy an SUV know what we are getting ourselves in to.


Favorite Features

6 cd changer, leather seats, 4WD


Suggested Improvements

gas mileage, it would be a great feature if you could lower the trunk's window like most other SUVs

Review

I think that the seats are fine. I do long highway drives (17 hours straight) often and rarely have to stop except for gas. However, I have to stop too often for gas.... Room inside for two bikes, camping equipment and people. Disappointed at depreciation rate. Seems much higher than comparable vehicles. Even without 4WD it handles great in snow on fairly steep rodes.


Favorite Features

Tight turning radius and overall handling; internal cargo hooks everywhere;


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage could be much better for a small SUV
