I have owned my 2003 Xterra for 3months
now. I haggled with the salesman and
payed $24,600 for a Silver 4x4 SE, with
floormats, and microcabin filter. The
Xterra has adequate power, great
features, and seems very durable. I
have had no problems and have no
complaints. The ride is very smooth
in the Xterra as the wheels absorb any
potholes or bumps you might hit rather
well. Cabin noise is also very
quiet.The instrument panel is well laid
out an I especially like the radio
controls on the steering wheel. The
Xterra is a solid vehicle and provides
a good view of the road. It also
provides good acceleration and I'm
able to merge and pass traffic easily.
Very smooth, quiet ride.
Great sound system.
Well laid out, functional interior.
Nice looking exterior.
I would like to see the rear seats fold
down, instead of pull out. Gas mileage
is acceptable for an SUV but could see
some improvement. I usually get 15-19
mpg with mixed highway city driving.
