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


This is my first SUV. After looking
at several different models, I decided
on the Xterra. One of the biggest
selling points to me was its off road
capabilities (getting up in mountains
during ski season can be quite a
challenge in a small sedan). The gas
mileage could be improved, but so far
I am averaging 18.5-19 between city
and highway driving. Not to bad, but
could be better. Have read several
reports on wind noise, but you must
realize that whenever you add a rack
on top of a vehicle the size of the X,
it's going to make some noise. Had a
ski rack on top of a Ford Focus - talk
about noise!!!!! All in all, I love
this SUV.

Best Features

Exterior styling is great. I like the vehicle hight, the availability of all kinds of racking systems, the sturdy feel of the vehicle, nice sound system.

Worst Features

Larger door handles on interior, gas mileage, larger cruise control knobs, a little more power, would like to see navigation system and heated/power seats.
