2007 Nissan Xterra S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just returned from a 3-week Colorado vacation. The S Trim XTerra performed admirably and was a pleasure to drive. Handled easy back roads with some rocks, pot holes, ruts and washboarding well -- was reluctant to try anything seriously challenging due to inexperience. Best gas mileage was 26 mpg. Mileage varies depending on driving technique, etc. Best to have a "light foot" on the accelerator. Had to replace in-cabin air filter upon return -- very dirty from dust. Since purchasing, have added skid plates, fog lamps and wind deflectors. Good investments. Happy XTerra owner.


Best Features

Sturdy construction, good handling, fun to drive. Good mechanical reliability so far.


Worst Features

Padded arm rests on the doors. Standard 9-speaker sound system, 6-CD player and volume controls on steering wheel on all trims. Design a hybrid / hydrogen fuel cell version with equal power.

2007 Nissan Xterra S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After driving a 00 Durango V8 for four years I didn't know what to expect from the 4.0 6. All I can say is WOW! I drive up a 6000' "hill" twice a week and it just loafs up, hardly ever kicking into low gear. Performance in snow with aftermarket BFG AT T/A's was fantastic. At 6'4" and 300 lbs it's still a very comfortable drive.


Best Features

Power, maneuverability. Roof storage is great for snow chains.


Worst Features

Side mirrors don't adjust outward far enough. When making a left lane change you had better be looking over your shoulder! I know it's a SUV, but the seat padding is a little hard for my taste.

2007 Nissan Xterra X 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

clutch fails at 16k, nissan refuses to cover it under warranty. i have driven manuals trans for over 40 years, including 2001 xterra, 2003 xterra, and 2007 xterra. i did not haul anything and drove mainly on freeway to work. i have researched this issue and I am not the only one reporting failed clutches on xterra. tellling, dealer rep let slip that perhaps drivetrain cannot accomodate increased power. In that case, the issue is a design defect.


Best Features

power nice. nice size.


Worst Features

transmission/drive train may not be right for added power. BEWARE!!! fuel economy stinks. In summary, reliability in question.

2007 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Purchased my 2007 Xterra back in October 07 and it's been great so far with the exception of the rattling noise comming from the rear cargo cover. I am yet to take the cover back to dealr and have them figure out what is wrong with it. Overall I would say this vehicle will not disappoint you.


Worst Features

Better arm rest for the driver better postioning of controls for power windows etc by door

Review

It's advertised at 18 city/21hwy. Mine has never done better than 17mpg no matter how I drive. I also drove the tacoma before I bought my X. I wanted a 6 speed. The tacoma drives like a car. The X feels like a full size truck. It doesn't have the girly frills of other trucks. It has a ton of power. I slip it in 3rd at highway speed and roar right by people. I got it to haul my mastiffs to shows and it fits that bill great, plenty of room and height for them. Get a cheap rubber mat so your dogs dont slip on the plastic. The only time it doesnt have enough power is in 6th on hills hauling dogs or people. No prob 5th will have you gaining speed on that same hill.


Best Features

Tons of power, drives like a real truck, back seats lay down flat, backend is plastic that is just wiped down to clean, thick steering wheel, smooth shifting, a goat offroad, positrack rear end with a locker, plenty of room with back seats laying flat, no frills, much less money than toyota.


Worst Features

The xterra has a powerful thirst for gas. Maybe drop some ponies in exchange for more MPGs
