2007 Nissan Xterra X 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Best way to describe this vehicle. Poor fuel mileage, hurricane winds come through cabin in winter freezing you, need to make a standing date every other week to take in for repairs, trim paint coating is water colors washes off, don't use a car wash even if standing 5 ft away will wash coating off trim, poor warranty coverage regarding such. TPMS is junk. stock tires & brakes are junk wear out way to soon, no not from hard use or poor inflation. Was not my choice but couldn't convince wife much better vehicles on market. Nissan refuses to talk to you if you call them about a problem. Better buy is Hyundai Santa FE by far. Poor drive ratio for engine size, wrong tran. Heat & defrost junk.


Favorite Features

seating height


Suggested Improvements

Better quality & quantity of paint on trim. Change final drive ratio increases fuel mileage. Needs better door seals totally lacking. Better quality brake rotors, pads and tires. increase air intake area for heater etc. Is expensive junk as is. All reviews were way off on quality of this vehicle.

Review

After driving a 00 Durango V8 for four years I didn't know what to expect from the 4.0 6. All I can say is WOW! I drive up a 6000' "hill" twice a week and it just loafs up, hardly ever kicking into low gear. Performance in snow with aftermarket BFG AT T/A's was fantastic. At 6'4" and 300 lbs it's still a very comfortable drive.


Favorite Features

Power, maneuverability. Roof storage is great for snow chains.


Suggested Improvements

Side mirrors don't adjust outward far enough. When making a left lane change you had better be looking over your shoulder! I know it's a SUV, but the seat padding is a little hard for my taste.

Review

My daughter bought a 2007 Xterra brand new in 2007 which I now drive.As far as I am concerned Nissan made a piece of junk.The fcu went out at 29,000 then the battery had to be replaced at 32,000 now the fuel line pops off the fuel pump. This has happened twice.Nissan wants 450.00 to replace a 1.97 plastic piece. You couldn't give me the keys to 20 of them.

Review

I have owned my 2007 xterra for 15 months now, and it's a love/hate relationship. I purchased mine used, with 58k and purchased the (unusually expensive) extended warranty with it. Shortly after purchasing the car, the radiator began leaking and was replaced. Then the rear differential seal began leaking and was replaced. Soon after that the entire rear end basically gave out, and the transfer case, rear differential, and rear axel were all replaced. Now the rear hatch quit locking, and the water outlet on the engine block is leaking coolant.. I love this car but with 74k and already $5400 of maintenance (luckily mostly covered) in 15 months it may not be in my garage much longer.


Favorite Features

Powerful engine, and great off road capability. It's a blast to drive in snow or through the woods, and has a good highway feel to it. Easy to clean rear compartment, and looks great from the outside.


Suggested Improvements

The reliability of this vehicle is really in question. I admit, I baby it for the most part... But use it as intended on weekend outings as well. Unfortunately it sits in the shop as much as it sits in the garage for a constant barrage of maintenance on the coolant system and rear differential.

Review

Just returned from a 3-week Colorado vacation. The S Trim XTerra performed admirably and was a pleasure to drive. Handled easy back roads with some rocks, pot holes, ruts and washboarding well -- was reluctant to try anything seriously challenging due to inexperience. Best gas mileage was 26 mpg. Mileage varies depending on driving technique, etc. Best to have a "light foot" on the accelerator. Had to replace in-cabin air filter upon return -- very dirty from dust. Since purchasing, have added skid plates, fog lamps and wind deflectors. Good investments. Happy XTerra owner.


Favorite Features

Sturdy construction, good handling, fun to drive. Good mechanical reliability so far.


Suggested Improvements

Padded arm rests on the doors. Standard 9-speaker sound system, 6-CD player and volume controls on steering wheel on all trims. Design a hybrid / hydrogen fuel cell version with equal power.
