2006 Nissan Xterra X 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought brand new and this X has never disappointed! Taken it cross country (NC-OR, NC-AZ) 3 times and have never had one issue! Rides like a truck and thats what I wanted. The factory suspension in the rear is lacking and bottoms out fairly easy. Easy fix with some good Timbren bumpstops. Have never had a major issue with it yet, just routine maintenance. Fuel economy is average but thats what is expected from a 265HP 4x4. If you want to wheel your rig hard then expect the front diff to fail since they are weak and you will most likely have warranty issues from the dealer if they know you go wheeling. Overall It is a great truck and I love mine!

Best Features

Easy clean interior, power, well laid out and functional controls, storage galore, steering response

Worst Features

If its an Off-Road then make it Off-Road and back up your warranties, beef up the front Differential (R180), improve the stock rear suspension leaf pack.
