2004 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 2nd Xterra. First one was
2wheel drive, this one is 4 wheel
drive. Looks like major changes to
exterior of the 2005 models. I don't
know about them, but I have been very
happy with my 2003 and 2004. Its
supposed to be marketed to kids but I'm
50 and lovin it. Don't be afraid to
buy this SUV. Its just as sexy as a
Toyota and more dependable than a
Chevy, and $5000 less than either one.
Shop at the last of the month and add
factory incentives, you could bring one
of these 4X4's home for around $21000.
I did.


Best Features

Big sexy looks, 4wheel drive, longer warranty, dependability. Lots of room. Good field of vision. Back seat passenger stadium seats are cool as they give passengers a great view.


Worst Features

This is built on a truck frame so don't expect a car-like ride. Back seat ride is really kinda rough, front seats not that bad. Engine could be a little bigger but unless you tow a trailer you won't notice.

Review

My first Xterra was a total loss due to a careless driver who pulled out and rolled my truck. This vehicle was incredibly tough. I had a seat belt on and came through the accident without a scratch! I honestly love the Xterra. I feel it safe and reliable. I bought another. I love the look and know I can load up the dog,bikes,camping gear, and a couple of friends! It is a good buy for the 2004 models. I love shifting on the fly, it does well in the snow! This is a well built vehicle! I love it!


Best Features

The turning radius is by far awsome! Ground clearance, durability, safety, extremely bright headlights, versatility of the truck! Color choices, smoothness of shifting into 4wheel drive, and the body style, options for excessories. I love the grill guard and tail light covers!


Worst Features

A bit more power to climb mountain roads, and the seating design in the back, the pop out cushions are not my favorite, (the 2005 I think has addressed that.

Review

The Xterra has damn good looks and is
very capable off-road. The only
downside that I see is the fuel mileage
at about 15 mpg.
