The new 05 Xterra is solid in construction and handling. I've only driven it 200 miles so far but I have notice a smoother ride, quiter engine and a decrease in air noise at highway speeds. By far this is the best Xterra I have ever owned!
The new wipe-down cargo area is my favorite feature so far.
With the new power plant under the hood I personaly would like to see Nissan intergrade a new towing package simular to the new Pathfinders avilible on all of its Xterras.
