2002 Nissan Xterra XE-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)
Purchased my Xterra in the summer of 01. It has been a reliable and durable truck. It's suffered the scorching summers of Phoenix, Az and the freezing winters of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and has never left us stranded. All parts still work. With regular maintenance it'll last forever. At 110K still runs strong no big repairs except for a high hose leak in the air conditioner, the power steering pump leaks but was fixed with a $10 additive and the rear main seal (common amongst Nissan trucks) is leaking oil but was fixed with another $10 additive I picked up. Overall been a fantastic vehicle. You can always depend on your Xterra
The plain but pretty interior, the stiff seats, that really powerful feel you get from the driver's seat.
More powerful engine, gas mileage that doesn't rival a tank.
