Review

I've never had more fun owning a car/truck. She runs like a sewing machine. Handles on the mountain passes here in CO perfectly. Off road very reliable. The girls wish it had a lighted passenger mirror. I bought 'em a make-up mirror and a flashlight.


Best Features

Handling, looks, utility features.


Worst Features

Navigation is not offered on the Xterra. I would suggest nav and that dang lighted passenger mirror. OK, driver's side mirror too.

Review

I found the truck used on autotrader for $22,000 and i had to have it. i traded in my 2000 dodge ram in to get it, and haven't looked back yet. I would suggest it to anyone who is wanting a larger SUV without the fuel economy of an 8 cyl gas guzzler. It has plenty of power (265 hp) and plenty of ground clearance. I get alot of looks driving my jet black xterra with my xm blairing "the squiz" going down the road. Fantastic truck. Highly recomended!


Best Features

Rockford Fostgate sound system, 265 hp, four spoke wheels, romovable back seat, attention i receive!


Worst Features

some people would say fuel economy, but what can you expect with a 2 1/2 ton vehicle?? i average around 16 in my 4WD, so no suggested improvements

Review

my wife and her female friends really like it...the 265 hp v6 performs strong, it's an odd (unattractive) vehicle, cheap plastic interior, the ride reminds me of a mid 70s cj-5 i had years ago, too high price for as cheap as this X is constructed, would not recommend this vehicle.......
