2005 Nissan Xterra S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Traded in 04 Murano. Went from luxury to basic. The X is very simple and rugged. if u get it dirty then leave it there, it looks nice w/ dirt on it. Interior layout is fine. everything is where u would expect it to be. more storage spots than murano. spacious enough to haul things around.

Best Features

6 speed transmission- short shifts make it a joy to drive. accelerates nicely. no need for supercharger-265 horses is more than enough. trunkspace is easy to clean. more spacious than previous Xterra's, esp backseats,not as spacious as the murano but good enuff. doors open wide. shift on the fly 4WD

Worst Features

For dealerships: more Xterra's w/ side/curtain airbag & the 6 speed manual. Had to settle for Night Armor but it would be nice to have more color options. Vehicle: Steering wheel is sensitive. no cargo cover!
