2003 Nissan Xterra SE S/C Rwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)
I've had my Xterra for just over a week
and I love it so far. Still, I REALLY
wish the steering wheel tilted up
higher. I'm 6'4/300 pounds and the
extra room would come in handy getting
in/out of the car. Other than that, I
have plenty of leg room. Also, my gas
mileage seems to be pretty marginal at
best. I'm hoping that it will get
better as the engine gets broken.
Great exterior styling, sunroof, comfy
seats, awesome stereo(!) and a good
Better gas mileage and acceleration! I
traded in a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited,
which had the best acceleration of any
SUV I've ever owned. The Xterra has
decent pick-up on the highway, but
tends to lag from a full stop. The
engine also tends to rev highly and
shift a bit slowly.
