2005 Nissan Xterra S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Nissan's entire product line has come a long way since it's bland offerings of the late 90s. The new Xterra is no exception. Traded a 2 year old RAV4 with a rattly dashboard and 4 cyl. engine. This is my wife's car. I have an 04 Frontier w/3.3 liter engine (same as 04 Xterra). 4.0 liter in 05 is noticable peppier. We actually went to buy an 04 on clearance and decided to spring for the extra $. My wife loves it and it is a head turner. Test drove a Highlander (nice car, but boring) and a Pilot (surprisely uncomfortable seats) and settled on this cool car and Nissan's reputation for dependability. Similar to Pathfinder in looks, but a lot more affordable.

Favorite Features

Well designed interior, very comfortable seats, fun to drive. New switch to put into 4WD is easier than the old stift handle. Real 4WD like the Xterra is noticably better than the full time AWD, like we had on the RAV4.

Suggested Improvements

After popping the hood from the inside, it was difficult to put your hand under the hood to find the lever to open it.
