2002 Nissan Xterra SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


My wife and I like our 2002 Xterra. The first thing we did is replace the General tires with Goodyears. The engine could be stronger but it isn't terrible and it is super dependable. I've had to replace a $100 part under the hood in the 3 years we've had it. The one thing I don't like is the cruise control. When I set the speed it takes too long to engage. If I set it for 70 and take my foot off the gas it slows down to 65 or lower and then takes too long to get back up to 70. Very frustrating especially to the guy I just passed. Overall, I like the vehicle and I would recommend it.

Best Features

4WD, dependable engine/tranny, leg room, cargo space, first aid kit... not.

Worst Features

Steering, road noise, trim pieces fade too much, sound system, cruise control.
