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


Review

I actually bought my Xterra in January
of 2002, I have always loved the look
of the Xterra. I have been nothing but
pleased with driving this vehicle from
the day I have owned it. Its a great
ride, great in the snow. Its large
enough for my needs such as my business
and for piling in my two labs for a fun
drive out.

I have only found two things that I
am not very happy with and that is the
horsepower, sluggish on takeoff and the
gas mileage for such a small V6. I
however still give the Xterra my two
thumbs up. Nissan did a great thing
when they came up with the Xterra.
Thanks Nissan.

2004 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

If a fun, off-road worthy vehicle is
what you are after, then The X-terra is
for you. It is built for a purpose and
fills it! Handles capably on the road,
but was designed to be abused. Somewhat
simplistic in it's design (interior
specifically), but most places you take
this the scenery is better outside
anyway. Get an X-terra and USE it!!!


Best Features

How it handles off-road.


Worst Features

Needs a weather-band radio. It is a little bit noisey on the road.

Review

We brought a brand new Exterra last
year. It was defective . We have taken
it back to be fixed over 10 times. The
customer service is terrible and they
are not willing to work with us. I do
not recommend this vehicle to anyone!!

2004 Nissan Xterra XE I4 Rwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought vehicle used with 39,000 miles.
Now it has 84,000 miles. So far, only
part replaced was thermal sensor for the
fuel injector, A.K.A. "wax kit", which
measures engine heat for the fuel
injector through a radiator hose. Wax
kit, dealer installed, was $230.00.
Covered under accessory warranty
(3yrs/36K miles), not under drivetrain
warranty (5 yrs/60,000 miles). The 4
cyl/5 spd manual is nice and economical
with hwy/city mileage almost always 20
MPG with regular gasoline. It's easy to
work on mechanically, with a lot of
extra room in the engine compartment.
Rides nice and secure on the highway.
The 4 cyl / 5 spd manual is an excellent
value, even if purchased brand new.


Best Features

Body-on-frame construction, weighs almost 2 tons. Lots of metal body/full frame surrounding the passenger compartment, no "unibody" construction (because it is built on a truck chassis, and not a car chassis).


Worst Features

The 4 cylinder engine would be nice with a little wider torque range; at some RPM's, there could be a little more "get-up-and-go", but this can be compensated for through downshifting to a lower gear (like "passing gear" on an autiomatic transmission).
