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