ain't no mountain high enough...........

2004 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)
Great looking exterior. Fit and finish are excellent. Rides like a truck, but that is expected. Gas mileage is sub par, but the 'fun to drive' factor outweighs the gas mileage by far. I bought it for my wife for Christmas, and she loves to get up in the mountains and take her new 'truck' off road over pretty substantial terrain (sand, medium boulders, dry river beds) It keeps on going as long as you can keep gas in it.
Great off-road capabilities. Right on the money styling. It looks like an SUV that is made to go in adverse conditions. Roof rack comes in handy....Great reliability from Nissan.
Gas mileage could be better, but it could always be worse, you could be walking......
