Very happy with this purchase. We drove
numerous SUV's before buying the
Xterra. All others we tested were in
the $30-40k range, but didn't see the
point in paying that kind of money with
the depreciation rate. Rugged design
is nice and performance is very good.
Turning capabilities are excellent and
it handles very well on any type of
road. Rides a little rougher since it's
based on truck chassis. Storage is
ample with the seats folded down.
Handling and turning capability.
Cruise/radio controls in akward
location on steering column and
Illumination would be great, as these
buttons are hard to locate at night.
Would also like auto turn on
headlights. Gas mileage is comparable
to the other SUV we've owned. The radio
could be better.
