Xterra - best of both worlds
By Natedawgg on


2005 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought a 4x4 Xterra because I wanted something that was fun to go off roading and camping in and was also good around town. I have only one complaint and that's the gas mileage. But what can you expect for a very strong V6 pulling a 4600 lb vehicle around? Other than that it's great. Good around town and great off road. Quite possibly the best composite on/off road vehicle around.

Best Features

Locking rear diff, hands down! Roof rack/basket. Looks muscular and "truck like". Truck frame. Cargo space. The signature rear door.

Worst Features

A little more ground clearance please (1 - 2 " would be perfect). Larger engine (4.6 liter v6 or v8 would be rad). Locking front diff. Inclinometer for the Off-Road package in the dash like the Toyota FJ.
