My 2000 Xterra SE 3.3 liter V6

Vehicle2000 Nissan Xterra SE 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewI bought this car almost two years ago and have put 15,000 miles on it.
It is great in snow and ice in 4 wheel drive mode.
Easy to shift from 2 to 4 wheel drive system. The 3.3 liter V6 is adequate, not fast, but you don't get an SUV for speed.
Valve gaskets had to be replaced at 154K.
Only complaints; no dashboard clock and dashboard instruments are very dark. On a sunny day if you're wearing sunglasses you can't read them unless dashboard lights are turned on.
Vehicle is very rugged.
I actually think this 1st generation Xterra looks nicer than the 2nd generation.
4 full doors and great visibility make it more practical than the FJ Cruiser.
I would highly recommend this vehicle.
Since last posting my review I had engine overheating repeatedly and thought the vehicle needed a new thermastat. Turned out there was a crack in the head gasket. I was given alternatives of a $2000 repair job or "we can put in some sealant and half the time that works." For thirty dollars I had them put in the sealant and ever since then, about six months ago, the car runs perfectly and no longer overheats.
