2012 Nissan Xterra Pro-4X 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


If I had the need I would buy this truck again and have two of them. That means I like the truck and I am happy I can get a tuck with all its functional capability in this particular size. I feel like I can go anywhere in any condition living in MN. All the professional reviews seem accurate so use those but what they don't say that I don't like is: I think the breaks are touchy and lacking feel. I also think the accelerator is jumpy meaning when you step on the gas get ready to jump and go go go! I find this annoying when trying to get out of a parallel parking spot gracefully without hitting the car in from of me. Especially downtown Seattle on a hill. Yikes!

Best Features

It is a real truck SUV. Looks cool Strong engine I feel safe driving it The stereo is reasonably nice and I didn't replace it like I usually do with a new vehicle.

Worst Features

smoother acceleration from a complete stop Better feel in the breaks
