I love my Xterra.
First off my Xterra looks nice. It's not big and bulky but very chic. It looks as if its ready for off road or a night on the town. I love the room in the back...I show dogs, and there is plenty of room for my equipment and dogs. It has a very smooth ride and best thing is when and if I go off road the 4x4 is amazing. I'm never worried about getting stuck...it not only gets the traction but has the torque to pull me out. I also love the comfort of the seats. Makes those long drives to show much easier. I like the cosmetic roof racks, side steps and the contrast to the sleek body. For an SUV, it gets great gas mileage. Doesn't require a ton of maintenance. I swear it'll go forever with just the basics. I should know. I've put a good 6,000 miles on it in just two weeks time. I also like the four door. I have a family, and we all fit...all five of us. Well eight if you count the dogs...I love that it can pull a medium trailer if needed. Now the only things I don't like are the small leg space in the backseat and the fact that the cargo area seems so high up. I need a ramp to load my dogs...but at least there's space for it. Despite its few flaws, and I do mean just two flaws, I'm hooked and will always look for another Nissan Xterra when this one finally gives up many more years from now.
Great on and off road!
I purchased this car about 5 years ago with 100k miles on it. So far, I've had to replace: timing belt (wore out), fog lights (burned out), A/C fan (burned out), leaf springs (1 snapped), head gasket (coolant leak), front grill (plastic pins holding it broke off), 4 small suspension parts...I forgot what they were called. I maintain the vehicle regularly, but a lot of parts appear to be cheap and fall apart. Especially the plastics, plenty of rattles and squeaks on every bump. Bumpers are also poorly built and fading. In the 2 years I've had the vehicle, it has cost me about $3,000 in repairs on top of the regular maintenance. Great off-road (Can't stress that enough) but poor quality parts make it less appealing.
