A powerhouse with wheels
Our Nissan Xterra is a crimson red model with a 4-wheel drive. We had bought it for about $2000 at the time and felt we got a great deal on it. The thing has a ton of room in the back. It makes it feel like you're driving a truck. You can even put the seats down if you need to make more room for other stuff. We got the automatic and you can barely tell when it's shifting gears. We have yet to have any problems with it in our few years of ownership. It handles very smoothly and is easy to park as well. Normally cars give me a hard time because I'm tall. My legs would hit the dashboard and various issues like that. I have not experienced that with this vehicle.

Great vehicle if you need a rugged suv
The Xterra is a great vehicle but its not for everyone. Its not a soccer mom's SUV but rather a truck based SUV. It is built on a truck frame vs. a car's frame like most midsize SUVs. This thing is great if you want to go off road or drive up a snow bank. It is not great on mileage nor does it come with all the frills of most modern SUVs. This is a vehicle that you buy because you need/want performance of the SUV and don't mind giving up mileage and/or interior frills.
