Vehicle2003 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewThis is my first SUV. After looking at several different models, I decided on the Xterra. One of the biggest selling points to me was its off road capabilities (getting up in mountains during ski season can be quite a challenge in a small sedan). The gas mileage could be improved, but so far I am averaging 18.5-19 between city and highway driving. Not to bad, but could be better. Have read several reports on wind noise, but you must realize that whenever you add a rack on top of a vehicle the size of the X, it's going to make some noise. Had a ski rack on top of a Ford Focus - talk about noise!!!!! All in all, I love this SUV.
Best FeaturesExterior styling is great. I like the vehicle hight, the availability of all kinds of racking systems, the sturdy feel of the vehicle, nice sound system.
Worst FeaturesLarger door handles on interior, gas mileage, larger cruise control knobs, a little more power, would like to see navigation system and heated/power seats.
