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

Review

My 2002 Molten Lava Xterra SC-SE is a cool ride. I test drove an XE and it was quite sluggish compared to the SC. Also, the 17" wheels on the SC really improve an already good look. Spend the extra money and get the SC. BTW, you don't have to use premium fuel in the SC - it is just recommended for maximum performance. Which is important, considering its high (for its size) gas consumption. Also, get the custom neoprene seat covers - great look, and otherwise the interior cloth is a dirt and dog hair magnet.

Favorite Features

looks that make CR-V and Rav4 owners feel inadequate. 6 disc in dash cd and stereo. High seating position. 10 inches of ground clearance. The optional interior bike rack. It is actually still pretty quiet on the highway with the sunroof open.

Suggested Improvements

A major safety issue is the blind spots from the side and front pillars. The dash gauges are hard to read, and the steering wheel doesnt tilt enough. Have to remove the back seat cushions to put the back seats down Can't open the sunroof with the rooftop gear basket installed.
