2003 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Xterra is not too big, but carries everything I need. The 4WD goes through anything. Biggest drawback: gas mileage. EPA projected 17/20 for the 5 speed Xterra is a joke. I get 13 around town and 16 on the hwy. If gas mileage is important, pass on this truck. If it doesn't matter, go ahead and buy it. Other negatives: Heater/AC system doesn't work well, the 4WD gets stuck (requiring one to go into reverse to unlock the hubs), and there are no drip rails to keep rain and snow from falling on the seats when you open a door.

Favorite Features

None.

Suggested Improvements

Lower gears in transaxle to improve performance and gas mileage. Heater/AC needs work, and drip rails would keep rain/snow off seats.
