Awesome Vehicle

This vehicle meets all my needs. I had a truck for 19 years and bought this one with only 7300 miles on it in 2015. Meets my purpose hauling my dog, groceries, home repairs, trips, tv's, etc. I'm a single senior female that does a lot of home repairs and it hauls everything I've put in it including a 70"TV. I have all oil changes made every 6 months and today 12-2020 only has 25,000 miles on it. Replaced 2 tires due to nails but it drives beautifully. Added outside black vinyl strips and black window guards and whitewall tires all for looks. Love the power getting on and off freeways. Always had a standard transmission before but do love the automatic transmission on this one. Seats could have been more comfortable, but at my 5'9" frame, they will do. Not looking for frills, just regular car use for a senior that goes only to Bingo and shopping. Love it.

Love it!

Better car than the Jeep Wrangler and the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The Pro-4X is the top of the line Xterra and is available with leather seats, premium stereo, trailer hitch, skid plates, Bilstein gas-filled shocks, locking rear differential, hill descent assist, side bars, a cargo cover, roof mounted off-road lights, and other features.

Reliable & plenty of storage room.

It meets all my needs from having a place for my dog to hauling home shopping treasures. Eight years old & still runs like new. It’s too bad Nissan stop making this model.

Nissan xterra is a good suv

The car met my needs. I need a 4x4 suv for hunting and these cars do well off road and in the snow. Would reccomend this vehicle to others that need good off road performance.

Most reliable car I've owned

This vehicle suits my lifestyle. I can tow my trailer/kayaks. It has the ability to tow much heavier loads. It's a beast in the New England snow and when I ski up north. It has a durable interior and exterior so you don't have to baby it. Perfect for an active lifestyle

Great suv

I love my xterra !!! It?s been a great car. No issues with it at all . I drove it from Louisiana to North Dakota and back and also from Louisiana to Montana and back . No problems with it. We went into the mountains with no problems.

Very reliable! Great A/C! Drives easy.

Only complaint I have is it's tough getting in the rear doors with the fender well so close to the rear seats. Running boards would probably help.
