Great for price, but...
By burger on
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
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
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!!
