Used 2001 Nissan Xterra Pricing

Consumer Rating

2001 Highlights

SE models come with titanium interior accents as well as a premium audio system boasting 100 watts of peak power and a six-disc in-dash CD changer. New steering wheel-mounted audio controls can be used to operate this system. The rumored 3.3-liter supercharged V6 is, at this point, MIA, but console yourself with a new color called Gold Rush and restyled 16-inch alloy wheels.


  • Rugged looks and capability to match, excellent brakes, lots of room inside, standard ABS, first-aid kit.


  • Uncomfortable front seats, cheap interior plastics and fabrics, useless sunroof on SE models, weak V6.

100k+ after
I've purchased this car about 2 years ago with 100k miles on it. So far I've had to replace: Timing belt (wore out) Fog lights (burned out) A/C fan (Burned out) Leaf springs (1 snapped) Head gasket (coolant leak) Front grill (plastic pins holding it broke off) 4 small suspension parts, forgot what they were called I maintain the vehicle regularly, but a lot of parts appear to be cheap and fall apart. Especially the plastics, plenty of rattles and squeaks on every bump. Bumpers are also poorly built and fading. In the 2 years I've had the vehicle it has cost me about $3000 in repairs on top of the regular maintenance. Great off road, but poor quality parts make it less appealing.
Love this car!
I have a 2001 SE 4x4. Bought it in 2005 with 64,000 miles. 5 years later and now over 175,000 miles on it, we've had no engine or transmission issues with it. I did have to replace an electrical component in the a/c this summer for about $250 but otherwise it's just been routine maintenance. It's a fun truck to drive and very reliable. Not the best backseat for carseats but it is manageable. We're in the process of selling it only because our 3rd child is on the way and we can't fit the family in this car anymore. But that is the only reason we're selling! It's been a great car.
Great Vehicle
Bought it with 28000 miles in 2003... 370,000 today! I'll probably get another vehicle someday , but I'll keep the Xterra forever! I retired this year and my driving has changed to mostly city, but the Xterra keeps on going.
