The 2014 Nissan Xterra receives a few new features including a much needed heated seat on the PRO-4X trim. X and S grades gain Bluetooth and steering-wheel controls, while the X trim gets an audio upgrade. An improved NissanConnect with Apps and new 16-inch alloy wheels round out the changes.

About Nissan Xterra

Aimed at the off-road enthusiast, the 2015 Nissan Xterra is a true body-on-frame SUV designed for rough trails, and it's not afraid to sacrifice some around-town comfort and convenience to do it right. The truck-based design makes it as tough as nails, and the available 4-wheel drive (4WD) system lets it crawl over rocks, boulders, ruts, streams, and just about anything nature can throw its way, without ripping its suspension or getting buried up to both axles. If that sounds like a Jeep Wrangler, you're right, and the Nissan Xterra is one of the few vehicles out there that can legitimately claim to be as rugged as the legendary Jeep, just minus the removable doors and roof, or an advanced off-road package like the Rubicon.

"I really loved this car for the 1st few years I owned it. At around 75,000 miles I began hearing this noise when I accelerate and a rumbling noise intermittently. I brought it to the dealer several times before they finally diagnosed it as a secondary timing chain issue. The very day that I got it back, it was still making one of the noises and they said that the radiator cracked and leaked fluid into the transmission, ruining the transmission as well. I contacted Nissan Consumer Affairs and they stated that it is past warranty and they will not fix the issue even though they clearly caused it through their misdiagnosis and faulty repair. Online research reveals that this prolem is extremely common. Nissan's lack of response to this problem makes me not recommend this otherwise great vehicle to anyone."

My Xterra loves the snow the best!

"I have owned this car from the beginning. Towed a trailer across the country, I go off-roading often, load it up and driving it all over town ever day. I would buy another just like it!"

My 2010 Xterra in the Monongahela National Forest

"The Xterra isn't the fanciest, most comfortable, or most well equipped SUV, but what it does, it does well. I've had mine in a great many different off-road situations, including once when I pushed foot-deep mud with my front bumper. The Xterra never even blinked. I was skeptical about "brake locking" (aka, traction control) for off-roading, but it works surprisingly well. When a wheel spins, that wheel is braked and the power goes to the wheels that have traction. Doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but has the basics to be comfortable in everyday driving. I've pressed mine into service as a vacation hauler and it makes a decent station wagon, with enough room for my 5' 11" son in the back and lots of luggage. Reliability has been good so far. No problems. Great power and handling for a big vehicle. Gas mileage is only so-so (personally haven't gotten more than 20 mpg). Interior space could be better. Upholstery is cheap looking and stains easily. I added seat covers and now don't have to worry so much. Mine developed a squeak somewhere deep in the dash that can occasionally be annoying. The cruise sometimes can't make up its mind at lower speeds, dropping several miles per hour below where I set it, then "waking up" and rushing forward so quickly that soon you're going faster than you want to. On the freeways, though, it's fine. Lots of hauling room with the seats down. Sturdy roof rack with rooftop storage compartment, which is nice for carrying messy stuff outside your vehicle. And of course, the thing looks like it is ready for action. If I had it to do again, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I heard the Xterra is going out of production in the next couple years. I hope that's not true...I'd like to have another one."
