I've put 11,000 miles on my Xterra S model so far with no problems whatsoever. This car is absolutely amazing in almost every aspect. The look and stance of it is obviously rugged and powerful, and the inside lends itself to functionality and practicality quite well. If you've got a lot of stuff to take with you, this is the SUV for you. Fantastic perfomance on and off road - I've taken it four-wheeling in some pretty intense mud multiple times and it doesn't come close to losing traction. Gas mileage is disappointing, with my very best so far 18 mpg on the highway. Plastic material can seem a bit on the cheap side, especially the insides of the doors and the dash. Overall, though, a great buy.
