If you want a TRUE S.U.V.
By 82BlackShark on
Vehicle2004 Nissan Xterra XE I4 Rwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI compared the Saturn Vue and the Hyundai Sante Fe before making my decision on the Xterra. The Xterra has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. while the others have only 1,200 lbs. The ground clearance and cargo capacity is larger than the others too. Get the 4 cyl 5 speed manual if you want the power. It does seem underpowered at first and it took me three days to get used to the shifts. Now I can make this truck fly fast. It has three regular V belts instead of 1 long serpentine belt so no worries if you run into deep water. Nissan built a real SUV.
Best FeaturesLarge vehicle for the price of a Scion Xb. NO timing belts on the 4 cyl. Styling.
Worst FeaturesFirst gear is somewhat too short almost like a granny gear which IS perfect for off road. A spare Tire cover or shield that is color matched to the SUV.
