Great small SUV
By jchipp on


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


I bought it in Jan 2004, and have loved it ever since. The "stadium" seating in the back is great for passengers - it lets them see, plus it adds a cool exterior styling, which turned me on to the vehicle in the first place. The interior is pretty basic, but functional. I have had no major issues, with it, just a couple of things: I had a check engine light come on frequently, it ended up being my catalytic converter, which was replaced under warrantee. I also needed a front brake job at 35000 miles, which seemed a bit early. Other than that, the truck has been bulletproof. I only wish it had more power and better gas mileage.

Best Features

Exterior style. The off-road capabilites are awesome for a small SUV. Great in the snow in 4WD. Easy to maintain.

Worst Features

More power and better fuel economy.
