2004 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
Review
Super fun to drive and great looking. MPG not the greatest for todays prices but you know that buying it. Inside is comfortable with plenty of room for people and "stuff". The Xterra feels very stable while driving even at high speeds. Acceleration is normal for a truck this size with the six cyl. Although the acceleration is a bit slugglish when going up "steep" roadways or while towing, although you can feel the pulling power. I did some light off roading with mine and had zero complaints, especially with with the 4 wheel drive.
Favorite Features
The sheer coolness of the Xterra. The manual shifting transfer case (for 4wd), no knobs or auto shifting 4wd. Solid rear axle. ALOT of cargo tie down hooks within the truck. Large size tires 265-70-R16. Alot of 12volt access sockets.
Suggested Improvements
A bit stronger engine (already happening on the 2005 model). Forget the independent front suspension and go with a Solid front axle. With 5000 pound pulling capcity the tow hitch should be standard. Lose the fragile plastic front bumber and design something stronger.
