I have had nothing but fun with this vehicle. I can't imagine enjoying one of the more expensive SUVs anymore than this one. I drove it from Massachusetts to Texas and had a comfortable trip, the seats get a bad rap, but I find them very comfortable and supportive in all the right places. I recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants a practical vehicle with a different look and nice price tag.
The roof rack adds a lot of character to this vehicle and is very useful to the active person who actually uses their SUV for outdoor activities and sports.
Not crazy about the fabric design, the fabric is durable, but the crazy designs on the 2001 XE model are very busy and don't go to well with the overall appearance of the Xterra.
