At least, not from the beautifully designed Nissan Xterra that I purchased last year. I only wish I could say the same for the dealership that I bought it from. I financed the truck in June 2004 from I am still having problems with my dealership today. After my monthly payment being raised three times and the harrassing phone calls at work for more money I was almost fed up enough to just give up. All it takes though is a short drive in Xterra and the world is a much brighter and more exciting place. So I urge ya'll to proceed w/caution when it comes to Nissan dealers.
This truck has countless cool features from the adjustable height for the seatbelt to the numerous power jacks, strategically placed troughout the vehicle.
I like the fact ther this truck has three seat belts in the back seat, since I have three chilren. The only improvment I would make would be to the ashtray and pop out tent more accessorized.
This SUV is tight. This truck does not
lack power even though it's a 4
cylinder. It's geared for low end
power so it's not too much fun in stop
& go but I've proven it can climb hills
with ease. Excellent control in snow
without 4x4 also. I was already rear
ended and slambed into the car infront
of me. The car behind went under and
only damaged the bumper. This truck is
SAFE! I owned a Nissan truck before
this with the same 2.4 motor for 12
years. 198,000 miles and it was a
performer with no problems. Sold it to
a friend and he loves it.
Gear basket. Great for wet wetsuits,
tire chains & more. Back seats are
easy to break down. Headroom to no
end. Stereo system needs no
Back seats need adjustable headrests.
Back seats are definitely hard. Have
no complaints about the front seats. A
trunk release would be handy. I have
to shut the vehicle off to unlock and
access the back since I don't have auto-
I have thoroughly enjoyed driving my
Xterra over the past year. It is very
sturdy and a reliable mode of
transportation. It's fun to drive at
the same time. The 2002 model has new
front end which I really liked before I
made my decision.
I think the overall picture of my
Xterra is my favorite. There are too
many things to list. I like the new
This is a great buy. I was planning on buying a used Xterra, a 2000 with 45K miles, fully loaded with a V6, but i saw a brand new 2002 XE 4cyl for just over the price of the used one. I opted for the new one, wondering about the power difference. It isn't too bad. It handles very well both on and off-road, and it is a very stylish ride. I enjoy the high clearance, and being so high off the ground. I used to think my old car, a blazer, was high off the ground, but once you sit inside the Xterra, you'll know differently. There is nothing you can't do in it, and it is a great car for teenagers
