I purchased my Xterra as a dealer demo. Shame on me for not doing more homework on both the Xterra and the dealer. While I have had a great deal of fun when taking the Xterra off road, I drive it mostly on road and have experienced nagging, little issues with the vehicle, that after doing a bit of digging find to be very common in the Nissan line. Fuel sensors and emissions issues seem rather common. Brakes wear is terrible. There are numerous rattles & squeaks as well. If you are in warranty, most of these are a non-issue, out of warranty they are pricey and don't waste your time contacting Nissan for warranty assistance, one of the worst experiences ever.
Plenty of cup holders, great power, excellent 4x4. Fun to off road in.
Fix nagging issues of fuel level sensors, emissions and cheapness of interior.
