Very happy with the Exterra
By Richard Gillis on
2005 Nissan Xterra SE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Fun to drive,good performance,extremely reliable,excellent service from dealer,gas mileage a little disappointing but would not trade it for performance. At this point I feel this vehicle will be with us a long time. I am anxious to see how it will hold up. My wife loves the styling and looks. I like it too. We purchased it for her. I have my own vehicle. I enjoy driving it because it has very responsive steering and acceleration. The engine has a good sound to it under acceleration. I would enjoy a stronger engine such as offered in the new one.
Acceleration,drivability,engine sound,looks,construction,cargo room,large wheels and tires,paint job,interior design (those new door pockets would be nice).
Door pockets,larger engine options,cargo net with hooks,standard lock for spare tire (ours was stolen in the first month,$200+ replacement),window/door lock control cluster could be better arranged.
