A few words about the new Xterra
By PL Muren on


2005 Nissan Xterra SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Having owned and liked the original Xterra; I still had a few things on my wish list. I wanted more power, an easier to use transfer case and better interior design, especially with regard to the folding of the rear seats. All of these things and more were fixed on the new model. The new engine delivers a rush of power one seldom experiences in a vehicle in this class. The new electronic transfer case is a joy to use even especially when the driver is tired. The rear seats fold flat without the need for removing and storing any cushions. While I thought the older model somewhat more attractive, nearly everthing else is better on the new one. The built-in XM radio is a joy to own!

Best Features

Engine Transfer case Serious off road capability XM Radio Improved interior ergonomics Unique quirky appeal Vehicle dynamic control

Worst Features

Wimpy horn Latch and hinge on center console not what one might hope for.
