"I bought my Xterra XE about 6 months ago...love love love this truck!!!
Plenty of room to haul around the kids plus the dog, and all the gear that goes with them. Gets pretty decent gas mileage when I'm doing interstate driving, not so bad in town either (better than what I'd expected).
I would recommend this truck to anyone....it's a fantastic truck for the price!!!"
"Awesome SUV. A little tough on gas. After two years the back window began to leak. So far the dealerships have not been able to see a pattern in that years model (2006). However, even with the gas and back window issue, I truly enjoy having this vehicle. One plus... It has amazing giddy-up for a six cylinder"
"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."
