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


Review

My Xterra is fun to drive around town, on the highway, and off the pavement. I never have to worry about taking it into poor conidtions. With 4WD and a high clearance, snow, mud, and dirt roads are not an obstacle. There is plenty of room inside for the dog, groceries, or backpacking gear. And if you run out of room inside, there's always the rack up top. The Xterra is designed for adventure down to the last detail. Do not expect luxury here, just functionality. Lots of functionality.


Favorite Features

I love the fact that there is a buit-in first aid kit (which I have used), but no vanity mirror.


Suggested Improvements

My only complaint is that I wish it got better gas mileage.

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


Review

At first I was thrilled, bought it new. But at 37000 all four automatic windows quit working and nissan said it was out of warranty by 1,000 miles so I was stuck paying for them. At 42000 miles the suspension became veryrough and after several trips to the mechanic still cant be fixed. Now at 50000 miles the air conditioning died and the back window wiper quit working. I'm trading in the end of this month for a toyota.


Favorite Features

Back seats pop out so when your children throw up you can pop them out and hose them off. When they dry they pop back in easily. It also takes corners well


Suggested Improvements

Thay need to change the window mechanisms, I was told at the repairing dealership that this is a FREQUENT problem. They definately can improve their Customer service. It was not that helpful.

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


Review

the truck has been great, except for the horrible gas mileage. the engine is nice and quite and the truck handles nice in the city and on the highway.


Favorite Features

exterior style, this is one of the best looking suv's


Suggested Improvements

gas mileage, air leak in the sunroof, a little more power under the hood for steep hills, floors should be offered in something other than carpet to keep clean

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


Review

vehicle has been reliable with the exception of the window motors. i have replaced 3 of the 4. i am willing the last one to fail prior to the warranty running out. fuel mileage is dismal, acceleration is poor, sunroof is useless, and ride over bumps is awful. then again, it is a true SUV based off a truck, not a car dressed as an SUV. other than these few shortcomings and problems, the truck has been easy to live with.


Favorite Features

6 disc, room, exterior styling.


Suggested Improvements

better mileage, improved acceleration, functional sunroof
