2005 Nissan Xterra S Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought this a year ago at 67K miles. In that time I've put about 20K on it. This thing is a lot of fun to drive. It will get up and go! Turns on a dime for an SUV. Seats 5 comfortably. The rear and passenger seats fold down easily and allow for a lot of cargo. It rides nicely and is very comfortable both on and off road. By off road I mean actual trails. Mine has VDC and it works great in snow & mud. Great visibility in all directions. The interior is cheap plastic. Things slide around in the “trunk.” Tire Pressure siren goes off a lot. I’m not going to overinflate the tires so I live with it. I check the trans fluid for murkiness often just to be on the safe side. Haven’t had an issue yet.

Best Features

Power! Cargo space, smooth ride, multi-adjusting driver seat, VDC, handling, off road performance

Worst Features

Tire pressure monitor, plastic interior, trunk door closes when its cold (pistons don't keep it open).
