Great 4x4, horrible gas mileage.
By Michael K on


2001 Nissan Xterra SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Wow, the gas mileage is horrible. First fill up was 16 mpg and second was 14 mpg. I could get the same in a full size truck. Other than that the suv rides well and for my purposes has plenty of interior room. Driven off road only once so far, but will put it to the test when the snow comes. Does well off road. Very quiet interior, but yes there is some squeaks now and then from the cheap plastic interior. Has decent power to get up the hills, but could use more. Clock could be brighter for use in the day. Over all a great suv, but you would expect it would get better mpg with a 3.3 L motor. Thought it should get around 18-21 mpg hyw. If you can afford the gas buy one.

Best Features

Radio/cd changer, looks of the exterior, solid closing doors, reported reliability.

Worst Features

Better mpg, a little more power, more cushion in the seats. Easier to work on the motor for home mechanics. Turbo or super charger.
