If you want a TRUE S.U.V.

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


I compared the Saturn Vue and the
Hyundai Sante Fe before making my
decision on the Xterra. The Xterra has
a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. while
the others have only 1,200 lbs. The
ground clearance and cargo capacity is
larger than the others too. Get the 4
cyl 5 speed manual if you want the
power. It does seem underpowered at
first and it took me three days to get
used to the shifts. Now I can make
this truck fly fast. It has three
regular V belts instead of 1 long
serpentine belt so no worries if you
run into deep water. Nissan built a
real SUV.

Best Features

Large vehicle for the price of a Scion Xb. NO timing belts on the 4 cyl. Styling.

Worst Features

First gear is somewhat too short almost like a granny gear which IS perfect for off road. A spare Tire cover or shield that is color matched to the SUV.
