"This is my 2nd Xterra. My first was a 2000 4wd & I loved it but found it lacking in compartment room just a little.I had a honda passport prior to it & always wanted an Xterra. I upgraded in 05 to the SE & even though not a 4wd-it's great! It handles like a dream, looks sharp, awesome response in tight plsces, LOTS of room for legs & torsos. I have the rockford Fosgate system & it rocks! My husband never owned an suv till he met me & tried my first xterra then bought a Toyota 4-runner for himself. When I got the new xterra he tried it & LOVES it. He is considering an Xterra for his next vehicle!"
"I would recommend this SUV to anyone. I was in a very serious accident with my first Xterra ( I now drive my 3rd) in which I rolled over 3 times. I WALKED AWAY with only a few scratches. Because of the "safety cage" and my seatbelt I am able to write this review today. Besides the safety aspect, this is a stylish and "tough" SUV. The gas mileage is the only down side."
"First SUV for me. The choice was pretty
clear as theres almost no other mid size
SUV with a manual transmission. Thougt
the 6 speed was overkill, but it works, although you may have to shift a bit on the
highway. Congrats to Nissan for giving
us a choice.
Other than that, tows 5000 lbs and
rides ok too. Actually got 20 mpg last week,"
