So Far So Good, But...
By tommywo on


2003 Nissan Xterra SE S/C Rwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)


I've had my Xterra for just over a week
and I love it so far. Still, I REALLY
wish the steering wheel tilted up
higher. I'm 6'4/300 pounds and the
extra room would come in handy getting
in/out of the car. Other than that, I
have plenty of leg room. Also, my gas
mileage seems to be pretty marginal at
best. I'm hoping that it will get
better as the engine gets broken.

Best Features

Great exterior styling, sunroof, comfy seats, awesome stereo(!) and a good turn radius.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage and acceleration! I traded in a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited, which had the best acceleration of any SUV I've ever owned. The Xterra has decent pick-up on the highway, but tends to lag from a full stop. The engine also tends to rev highly and shift a bit slowly.
