"Bought this vehicle in spring of 2002. Have put a whole bunch of miles on it and have little or no problem (oh... the window regulators were recalled and the air conditioning had to be repaired about 24 months in to our relationship...). Loved the cd player and manual transmission.. you could pull stumps or climb trees with this thing. It is noisy as can be at highway speeds though and in the winter, she's pretty cold... I do love it though and I'd recommend them to anyone who asked."
"I bought my Xterra new in 2000, the air conditioning quit working in 2002, the electrical began going out in 2004 and I have been through about eight batteries. I think Nissan probably fixed those glitches in recent models, but I would not suggest buying a 2000 model. That being said, the car has carried me all around with virtually no mechanical failure. The electrical system and a/c, however, have not performed as well."
