I'm had the xterra for 5 years, 93K
miles. So far so good. Nothing has
ever broken down, and it still runs
like new. I cant ask for anything
more. Go anywhere capability, good
wear on the brakes. Brakes are awsome.
Changed the oil every 2500 miles, using
castro syntec 5w50. I cant say enough
about the build quality. A little
bouncy on the but upgraded the
suspension with a tokico kit and it
rides well. GREAT CAR111
Go anywhere capability. Great in the
snow, Binghamton winters and now NYC
winters. Never even came close to
getting stuck. ABS is awsome too.
Strong suspension, NYC potholes are no
problem. The reliability and price
when I purchased it 24000 is amazing.
Got all three packages.
Gas milage, good on highway 16-17 on
highway but 12 in the city. But I
guess thats just NYC traffic averaging
10 MPH, or maybe I have a lead foot?
Seats could be more cofortable and I
think this is a problem with most
cars. MORE LEGROOM, you know some
people are over 6 foot.
I have had my Xterra for only a few
years and have hit over 100,000 miles
(yea I drive alot). It has given me
relativly little problems but the
normal wear and tear fixes ( brakes,
batteries and tires). I have taken long
road trips and the gas milage, tho not
ideal is not as bad as I would have
thought. I can drive from LA to SJ on 1
tank of gas.
The only thing I don't like which I
think has been correct in later models
is that when you are driving on the
freeway, air passes between the black
cover over the sunroof and the car
making a loud thapping sound.
Until I hit 100K on the odometer I
thought I owned the best SUV available
for the price. Snapped a timing belt
at 100,300. Nissan has given me no
releif, owners manual calls for
replacement of belt at 105K. Replaced
engine with a 30k used engine. Both
engines had cracks in exhaust
manifold. A lemon of an engine. Some
engine parts a clearly sub-standard
When i got tired of my loud,hard to
deal with jeep wrangler I was looking
at the grand cherokees but fell in love
with the style of the nissan Xterra! I
love my 2000 Xterra. Get one equipped
with V6 and 4WD. Also be sure to get
the power package, I noticed some have
the manual roll up windows (like my
wrangler did) I do not miss my wrangler
like I thought I would. I love my
Nissan Xterra (solar yellow with over
sized tires and greay leather seats
make it my dream vehicle!) Test drove a
2000 jeep grand cherokee which cost
$4,500 more than the Xterra and had
basic cloth seating. Very happy with my
purchase so far!
Leather interior makes for a make nicer
ride. Owned a wrangler for 3 years this
Xterra is a huge step up for me. I love
the design of the exterior this is what
caught my eye. I turn heads everywhere
I go because of the solar yellow paint.
The best part is I only paid $12,000
Use less plastice on exterior and
interior. Two sun roofs(one in front
and one in rear) would be really cool.
There arnt too many flaws so far!
