The Best SUV for the bucks
By Mikey Knows on


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


Before I bought the Xterra I did a lot of research. I needed an SUV with 4wd that was under $30,000 that was big enough for a family of 4. The gas mileage for the V-6 is not the best, but if you want better mileage then you're stuck with a 4 cyl micro SUV with little cargo space.Cargo space kicks butt in the Xterra compared to other SUVs below $30k & the roof rack is SOLID TUBE METAL not flimsy plastic.I strapped lumber, doors, & other big stuff with no problems(Max weight is 20lb) You do have to remove the rear seat bottoms to have the seats fold flat,which is good and bad.The Xterra drives like a 4x4 truck,it is no where as bad as a jeep. But like a jeep you will never get stuck in snow & mud.

Best Features

Vehicle size for the bucks. Roof rack.

Worst Features

Better upholstery and interior. Fix rear seat cushions so that rear seat fold flat. Better 4wd shifter (sometimes hard to shift to 4x4 while driving)
