2002 Nissan Xterra SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Just bought this car Feb. with 105K miles on it.
Had to change the timming belt and water pump as the previous owner had not changed these items.
I could not ask for a better small SUV.
It is a live axle 2wd truck, so the ride is rough but not a single piece of plastic in the vehicle makes noise.
The cost to purchase these is fairly low due to most people not wanting to change the timming belt.
Don't be affraid if you can do minor car repairs, this one is a breeze.
Great car i would buy another in a heart beat.
Uses a little more gas then expected for a V6 but it is still not bad

Best Features

High Stance, great exterior look, even in the 2wd version it still feels and looks like the 4wd minus the parts that tend to wear out over time.

Worst Features

Fuel mileage needs improvement for a V6, but i knew what i was getting into before i bought the car. Cann't say enough about Sea-Foaming you gas tank and engine. It made a world of difference.
