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


I bought my Xterra after carefully researching the vehicle, and scrutinizing the condition of the car itself. For the most part, I agree with most of the reviews. The ride is a bit stiff, which is good for a true SUV. The steering can be a bit squirrely, especially at lower speeds, but it is fine once you adjust to it. One point I wholly agree with is the underpowered engine. A truck like this should have a 4.0 as base, not an upgrade. The interior is comfortable, if a little sparse, save for the power windows and locks. I'd also like more up front storage. So despite it's few shortcomings, it's a great truck. I really, really like it. After all, Dogs love trucks!

Best Features

Roof scoop, ground clearance, full size spare, 4WD

Worst Features

4.0 base engine, more up front storage, flat area on dash, better airflow past drivers window, rather than into backseat
