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

Review

I realize that fuel economy is something you usually trade for the power you get from an SUV, but the Nissan Xterra drinks gas like water, and still has trouble picking up enough speed to merge onto a highway without getting rear ended. This truck is competent to get me to and from work everyday, but I'm hardly impressed by the way the engine races before kicking in everytime I ask it to get me someplace in a hurry. I reccomend going for the supercharged model. Also, why does the steering wheel have to be so close to the seat? There is barely enough room for your legs, even after you adjust it.

Favorite Features

It looks great and the sound system is like being at a concert hall.

Suggested Improvements

This truck needs more power. The frame is too heavy to be moved by a V6. Get the supercharger and next year, offer a V8.
