"Bought a new 06' in Feb. 07' and got a great deal. Great power and control. My daughter has a 04' which is a good car but nothing like the 06' for performance. My son wiil get this one in a few years and I'll get a new Xterra. Only complaint is the rear suspension in too soft with moderate cargo in the back. Gas milage 21-22 (70% hwy) if you keep your foot out of it, 18-19 if you don't. Great in the rain."
"I recently purchased a new 07 Xterra S model. It is a nice looking vehicle and its fun to drive. The only issue I have is the bumpy ride. I test drove mine on a smooth patch of interstate. It wasnt until I had taken it out on a long road trip did i realize its not the most comfortable drive. I could compare it to a Jeep Wrangler. Also when taking turns at a normal cruising speed and you hit a rough patch of road it seems the rear end likes to hop around. It is a nice SUV for the money I wouldnt recommend it for taking friends on a long road trip. Not much room in the back seat if you are over 5 feet tall."
