2003 Nissan Xterra SUV SE S/C 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I Find the Xterra is fun to drive. It outclimbs most other cars on the hills and find the it is a very smooth ride on the freeways... I find one piece of equipment missing in the vehicle though and that would be an oil pressure gauge.. I would much prefer this to the standard idiot light that usually tells you when it is too late. The service through the dealer has been outstanding too. I would buy another one if I ever need too. But I feel that my xterra and I will be together for a long time...


Favorite Features

love the get up and go it has on and off road...


Suggested Improvements

add oil pressure gauge to the interior drivers side gauges..

2003 Nissan Xterra SUV XE Rwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

WATCH THIS TRUCK! PLEASE LOOK ONLINE AT OTHER USERS THAT HAVE HAD THIS SUV OVER A YEAR. BY STATS, MOST PEOPLE DO NOT KEEP THIS SUV OVER TWO YEARS AND SHOW A LOT OF COMPLAINTS AFTER 60K MILES. I HAD TO TAKE MY TRUCK BACK 3 TIMES TO FINALLY GET THE BRAKES TO FEEL NORMAL. I DONT THINK MY ABS IS WORKING ANYMORE AFTER BRAKE FIX TIRES LOCKUP NOW. THE SOUND WHEN I COLD START THE TRUCK, THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS. WINDOWS RATTLE. BAD GAS MILEAGE TOO - 16 TO 17. MY COWORKER AND I ARE BOTH LOOKING FOR A NEW VEHICAL TO WARRANT SOME PC OF MIND. FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO BUY. PLEASE CHECK MY SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENTS!!!!


Favorite Features

STYLE AND COMFORT OF SEATS CAUGHT ME. I THOUGHT AFTER THE POWERFUL ENGINES THEY HAVE IN THERE ALTIMAS THAT THIS ENGINE WOULD BREAK IN.


Suggested Improvements

BRAKE PROBLEMS, WINDOW PROBLEMS, NOISES FROM THE A\C AND LOUD SOUNDS AT STARTUP.

Review

I drove a Jeep Wrangler for the past several years and I was worried about how I would like this type of vehicle since I was used to a small rugid vehicle. I am so happy that I decided to get the Exterra. It is an awsome car with a great ride and it handles beautifully. I would buy this car again in a second.


Favorite Features

The stereo is the best feature on the car. It is great sounding.


Suggested Improvements

The only thing I can complain about is that there is not enough driver leg room.

Review

I like the Xterra, it's a life style choice.


Favorite Features

I love the look..but I am really impressed with the handling, clearance and it's simplicity.


Suggested Improvements

I like tough trucks..and the Xterra is that, but it needs a more reliable and longer lasting bumper. Enough plastic, it's good vehicle..make it better.
