2003 Nissan Xterra XE Rwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


All my ratings we're based off of the several SUV's and trucks that I've driven from an Explorer, Expedition, Tahoe, Denali XL, Jimmy, Ranger, F150, C1500, and CRV. The Xterra is its own vehicle and that's why it shines. The mileage and highway driving are not fun. I fear merging with this car b/c of the lack of power. But the sheer massive truck presence of the Xterra makes up for it. The hard engine sounds and road noise from crusing at 65mph sometimes does bother me especially when I see my gas tank meter drop. Going w/o a LSD was a big mistake. Interior is shabby but its a truck what do you expect. Overall a good performing truck however, I'm starting to realize I like small cars.

Best Features

Truck driving feel and appearance. simple to use cd player. 4WD. 2WD fish tailing.

Worst Features

better gearing? nicer interior. oh back seat that isn't in the clouds.
