I am very pleased with the Xterra so far.
By johnwaynext on
2012 Nissan Xterra Pro-4X 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have only had my Pro 4X Xterra for a few days but so far so good.
I bought it for $5300 off list over Labor Day at Bommarito Nissan in Hazelwood, MO.
Nissan had some great incentives then.
The Xterra drives great, smooth on the highway and solid when I go off road.
Fit and finish seem to be good. I like the leather seats.
The upgraded sound system is wonderful, much better than the one found on the S and X models.
Too early to tell about gas mileage.
It will probably be comparable to my 98 GMC Jimmy at around 18 overall.
I considered going to a car based CUV for better mileage but none of those seemed to be up to the capabilities of the Xterra.
I will write updates regularly.
Part-time 4 wheel drive, leather seats, sound system, smooth ride on road, off road ability, towing capacity and acceleration.
Better gas mileage would make this truck even better than it is, but I can live with it because of what it can do.
Power seats would also be an improvement.
More choices in interior colors would be nice.
