I love my new Xterra SE! The overall package is a great value (with the rebates), and the design, and quality fit & finish are exceptional. The sporty sound betrays the power and performance, and the ride & handling are outstanding - refined, responsive ride & handling, without any vibrations or rattles. The interior is spacious, and comfortable, and the Rockford-Fosgate Audio system rocks! Fuel economy could be better, but its still good at an overall average of 20 mpg. Consumer Reports reports great reliability. Sure, Id like leather, an automatic climate control system, automatic head lights, 6-way power seats, fully carpeted rear cargo area, etc., but those aren't "deal-breakers."
Great design, fit & finish, power & performance, ride & handling, and audio system.
Few more of the Pathfinder amenities, and even better fuel economy.
