2002 Nissan Xterra SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


purchased this 2002 Xterra, 11 months after purchasing the previous years model for my wife. I have driven many miles in this Xterra, shooting photos at race tracks across America. It has has been down some of the roughest roads, and not skipped a beat. The (e)Xterior, when washed, looks as good as the day I drove it off the lot. I even use it to pull a cargo trailer at times. Before the trailer, we amazed ourselves at how much equipment we could fit in the back with the seats folded down. Highway mileage is about 18-19 mpg. Not what I expected when I bought the first Xterra, but actually an improvement over the 2001 model.

Best Features

The raised rear seats, and rounded headlights (vs rectangle in 2000-2001).

Worst Features

My driver's door started making a whistling sound at higher speeds (80 + mph when air somehow gets through). The dealer said he would fix this under warranty, but I haven't been by, as I don't usually drive at that speed.
