Not well-rounded enough
By veljo756 on


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


I bought the Nissan 6 months ago and
have not been disappointed. It
delivered its promise: cool exterior,
great image and capable offroad.
However anyone driving this thing
around town, like I do should think
twice. Ride is uncomfortable, at least
compared to a CR-V fuel milage is poor
and the worst thing is engine
performance. Shortly, this vehicle is
very slow! I'm glad Nissan will
improve on that for 2005, because
while the numbers are impressive on
paper, this is a very heavy SUV and
hence simply slow. Before you buy it,
test drive a Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV-4
and Ford Escape. They cost about the
same and should meet your needs just
fine. Do not spend money on image

Best Features

Styling, high seating position, large tires, brush guard

Worst Features

More power, improved ride, more space in the backseat as the legroom is simply insufficient
