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


We waited for the supercharged version to come out and are very glad we did. We picked up the electric blue, stnadard for the family and to tow my ducati on an open trailer for racing. In texas the roads are fast, so 80mpg is pretty normal and no problem with the trailer and loaded with gear. Gas milage is another issue. I get 120- 140 miles on a tank and 9mpg when towing. Ouch! Price was great for what we were looking for as well.

Best Features

Unique looks with a truck base. Stadium seating for the kids, and sporty drive for a truck. The truck hauls ass, but you can watch the gas tank drain. I've used my track tanks more then once to get me to the next gas station. Nice wheels on the SE as well.

Worst Features

Gas milage please! And, increase the size of the gas tank. Everything else has been excellent. Gas is expensive, and annoying to have to stop twice when others go straight through to the track, but probably still cheaper then excursion which doesn't get that much better gas milage.
