Xterra makes for love/hate relationship!
By Nothead on


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


I have had my Xterra for about a month
now and I am truly in a love hate
relationship with it. I must say that
I do "love it" much more than I hate
it though. The power must be
increased for this monster. The gas
mileage must be worked on too, it
really sucks to have poor mileage from
a vehicle that has weak gittyup! I
have to really step on it to make it
get out of the blocks if I want to
pass another car. Kinda wished I had
waited to get the 05 model coming out
nest year. Leg room is down right
short for rear passengers. Front
driver leg room can be improved too.
I scrape my knees on the wheel each
time I climb in even though the
steering wheel is in the high tilt

Best Features

Cargo space, stadium seating, big tires makes it ride high. Rugged looking. Plenty of AC outlets. Sound system not pretty to look at but sounds really good.

Worst Features

Improve the dash with some color please, very boring gage cluster. Get rid of the base model radio and make the "Fosgate" the standard radio if you really want to target the younger market! Better gas mileage pleaseeee! Lord know this thing needs more power to pull it's big butt up the road!!!
