I have had my Xterra for about a month
now and I am truly in a love hate
relationship with it. I must say that
I do "love it" much more than I hate
it though. The power must be
increased for this monster. The gas
mileage must be worked on too, it
really sucks to have poor mileage from
a vehicle that has weak gittyup! I
have to really step on it to make it
get out of the blocks if I want to
pass another car. Kinda wished I had
waited to get the 05 model coming out
nest year. Leg room is down right
short for rear passengers. Front
driver leg room can be improved too.
I scrape my knees on the wheel each
time I climb in even though the
steering wheel is in the high tilt
Cargo space, stadium seating, big
tires makes it ride high. Rugged
looking. Plenty of AC outlets. Sound
system not pretty to look at but
sounds really good.
Improve the dash with some color
please, very boring gage cluster. Get
rid of the base model radio and make
the "Fosgate" the standard radio if
you really want to target the younger
market! Better gas mileage pleaseeee!
Lord know this thing needs more power
to pull it's big butt up the road!!!
I just bought my Xterra a week ago and
I love it! fuel economy is terrible but
I'm hoping it will get better after
breaking it in. Anybody know why the 5
speed towing capacity is 1500lbs less
than the automatic? Anyways, I'm glad I
bought an Xterra because now my ride
looks much better than my brother's
Jeep Liberty and my mother in-law's
Exterior design, ground clearance and
Gas mileage is not very good for a 3.3L
V6. My brother's 3.7L Jeep Liberty has
better gas mileage
I HAVE ENJOYED MY XTERRA THIS PAST
EIGHT MO. MY WIFE LIKES IT BETTER THAN
ME ,WELL SHE DRIVES IT MORE TO WORK AND
GROCERY STORE ETC. BUT IT HANDELS GOOD
ANDHASA WRAP AROUND FEEL WHEN YOUR
DRIVING ALSO HAS A SPACEIOUS BACKFOR
HAULING PLUS CAN LAY BACK DOWN FOR MORE
ROOM IF NEEDED!
I actually bought my Xterra in January
of 2002, I have always loved the look
of the Xterra. I have been nothing but
pleased with driving this vehicle from
the day I have owned it. Its a great
ride, great in the snow. Its large
enough for my needs such as my business
and for piling in my two labs for a fun
I have only found two things that I
am not very happy with and that is the
horsepower, sluggish on takeoff and the
gas mileage for such a small V6. I
however still give the Xterra my two
thumbs up. Nissan did a great thing
when they came up with the Xterra.
Rugged look, Roof design and basket.
Love the gauges and color at night.
If a fun, off-road worthy vehicle is
what you are after, then The X-terra is
for you. It is built for a purpose and
fills it! Handles capably on the road,
but was designed to be abused. Somewhat
simplistic in it's design (interior
specifically), but most places you take
this the scenery is better outside
anyway. Get an X-terra and USE it!!!
How it handles off-road.
Needs a weather-band radio. It is a
little bit noisey on the road.
