2004 Nissan Xterra XE Rwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


I am a 27-year old male, living in LA. Commute's only a few miles away, never had a new car, always wanted an SUV, so I got the Xterra. Test drove several SUVs and while performance wise this would not be my first pick, for the price and the look I was sold. It fits me to a T this car. I got mine in black, it's rugged looking and compliments have been plenty. However the gas mileage is atrocious! On a 19 gallon tank, I've probably averaged somewhere between 210 - 240 miles before it starts to reach E. They can definitely do better than that. So while I'd recommend this car to the younger, hipster person w/ a short commute, it's not ideal for the practical crowd or folks w/ long commutes.

Best Features

The look. Rook rack. High wheel base. Great price for what you get (although that's probably because it comes out of the gas costs you'll spend on it).

Worst Features

Higher ceiling and longer leg room (although it looks like the 2005 model has this fixed). And for God's sake...improve the gas mileage!!
