This is Xterra #2 for me. My first was a 2000 XE V6 which I thoroughly enjoyed. I had it around two years and put around 30,000 miles on it before I needed money for getting married and buying a house. Now a couple of years later I've replaced my lost treasure with a 2003 SE 4x4 V6. There's really no difference inside except for the gauges and radio package. The Fosgate sound system is awesome and the sub really hits nicely. The transfer case shifts nice and smooth with easy transistions between 2 and 4 wheel. This X has really lived up to the expectations and quality that I know to expect from Nissan.
Fosgate sound system rocks! Adding a brush guard and rear light guards really gives the exterior a "tough" look.
Better fuel economy. The guages are too dark due to the "tunnels". Heavier seats with better cushion.
