My previous car was an 07 Saturn Vue. I looked at Toyota,Honda & Kia before going for the XTERRA. I am so pleased that I did. It is excellent for the money. first Nissan I have ever owned. A day or so after I purchased it we had the worst snow in NJ for many years followed by heavy rain storm and high winds. The X performed excellently in all conditions. It has an excellent heater. Very good visibility all around. Steering a little heavy when maneuvering in 4WD but not an issue really. It provides and excellent feeling of security in bad weather conditions.
Visibility, firm but comfortable seats, excellent acceleration. Good storage for the smaller items. I purchased the floor mat for the cargo area which is a great improvement.It also reduced a bit of noise.
Heated rear view mirrors, exterior temperature gauge, Automatic lights would be an asset I miss them.
