A Bit Disappointed in Nissan
By Kim on


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


Reliability has been great and it has definitely hauled a lot of items for me. Very easy to steer and turns on a dime. However, I'm very disappointed in Nissan craftmanship. Front grille immediately faded within 6 months. I was told by dealer that this was part of the "rugged" look and they wouldn't replace it. Seats are very hard and uncomfortable for travel. Windows have poor insulation - wind is howling. No mirrors even on the visors! Back seat doors are made for people smaller than a size ten (and younger than 50) to squeeze through to get into the backseat. But I guess you pay for what you get.

Best Features

Reliability, price, steering, hauling capacity (groceries, coolers, etc.).

Worst Features

Passenger doors should open farther, better insulation for windows, better craftmanship on bumper and grille (fade resisitant), mirrors on visors.
