I had the best experience with Checkered Flag Auto Outlet. This is my second time using Checkered Flag as our dealership. Our salesman, Allen Belanger, was the best salesman I've ever dealt with. He was genuine, answered all of our questions, and never pushed anything on us. He called us as soon as the vehicle we were interested in was ready to be viewed. The whole team at the Auto Outlet made us feel like they were a close knit family, and we became part of it. They even helped entertain my one year old daughter! I will continue to recommend Checkered Flag to all of my family and friends in the area!

Unfortunately we couldn’t make a deal but had a great experience. Gary and Donnie are top notch. I will definitely deal with these guys in the future.

I got this truck as a do all daily driving 4x4. It never had a major issue, maintenance was cheap and easy, i drove it from Texas to Michigan on 3 separate occasions with a roof full of luggage two dogs and my wife. Its comfortable, reliable and is equally capable, commuting, hauling kayaks or navigating offroad terrain. The thing just doesn’t quit. It’s a shame they quit making them because it’s one of, if not the best 4x4 SUV out there. There’s a reason these things are all over African desserts and the Middle East, because they can take the harsh conditions and keep going. Buy one if you get the chance, you won’t be disappointed.
Jacob's service was perfect, He helped me get a safe vehicle and explained everything along the way.
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
I was helping my brother and sister-in-law to purchase a vehicle that they took over a year to choose the best make and model for their family. As I am in Dallas Texas, having a long distance discussion can sometimes be difficult , that's assuming you are even taken seriously. The team at Suttle were professional and informative the entire time. Very helpful and straightforward. Thank you for your help during this buying process!

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.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
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.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.

We were looking for a good vehicle for every day use and camping, after shopping around for awhile we finally found the one we want! We wanted something with roof racks and tow hitch and lots of room. The Xterra offers that. As far as the interior feature, it has a great sound system, multiple plug-ins, a hidden compartment, bottle holders on the side of the door. The trunk is lined with plastic so it will be easy to clean and the seats come down. There is so much room still to add on and make it out own. We are very happy with our purchase.
The sale people were very knowledgeable , and was a pleasure to do business with. She had the service department clean the car prior to delivery and they did not half clean anything. The windows, interior seats, and carpet was not cleaned as good as previous car dealers had done. Overall Sale personnel are fine, Service personnel are not as good.
Loved it but put it through alot

It was enough room for me and my growing kids it had a neat little spot on top of the car where u could store things the first month i had it it took me through a creek
the customer service and the service was excellent but I had a coupon for a $59.99 oil change (synthetic oil) and when I paid my bill it was $74.39. When I asked why was I paying almost $15 more the excuse was that my car didn't require synthetic oil but I requested it so the oil change process required an additional fee (I drive a Toyota Yaris). There was no mention of an additional fee until it was time to pay the bill. I don't like being taken advantage of. Also, the service representative was very nice and professional and I know he's just doing his job, but he tried to sell me additional service repairs. I politely declined each recommendation and he would offer another service repair at a lower rate.

Very rugged with many manual functions, including seat adjustments. I was looking for bright red and it was Crimson red instead. It was designed for off road adventures. I was looking for an all wheel drive that could manage an incline and rock road in the winter. The car is really cool, it just didn't have what I really wanted.
I WAS LOOKING FOR A GOOD USED CAR AND TERRY HAD THE CAR THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR AND AT A GOOD PRICE. I DROVE THE CAR AND IT WAS A VERY NICE CAR SO TERRY HELP ME SO I CAN GET THE CAR .THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE HELP I LOVE MY NEW CAR.

SE 4x4 model. I've owned the Xterra for 4 years. I bought it with a blown transmission, due to the coolant/tranny fluid intermix factory default on the automatics from2005-2010. It was not advertised as having any issues but I caught it before buying it. This is only for automatics. $3600 at AAMCO with 3 year warranty plus the radiator.
THE GOOD: That said, this thing has been awesome! It has good power, good street manors, drives well in the snow (4x4), looks good, and I have done a fair amount of off roading and it has impressed me and my friends. Anything I've had to fix has been super easy compared to prior vehicles I've owned. There are a fair amount of cheap upgrades available and this is a cheaper and more unique alternative to a Jeep Wrangler 4 door. with the seats folded flat it has enough room for most things you need to hall. Also this thing will fit 33" tires with stock suspension but I would stick with 32" if you don't want to deal with getting them to fit or a lift. The factory roof rack can come in handy. It can tow a fair amount of weight but I'd recommend air lift if that's your plan. You can pack all your stuff between the roof rack, room inside and strapping on a cargo carrier to the tow hitch. The Rockford Fosgate stereo is awesome!
THE BAD: Transmission will intermix with coolant and blow auto transmission if the radiator is not upgraded (matter of time). It's suspension doesn't last real long so tasteful upgrades have been a major reason I love this thing off-road (Bilstein 5100 shocks) OME add a leaf. The leaf springs will weaken and need replaced every few years and aren't great for towing if not upgraded. The gas mileage has been 17 in the summer, 16 in the winter with 50/50 mixed driving. 33" MT tires and rims have brought this to 14.6 with the same driving. Brakes are a bit squishy and worth upgrading also. The back seat is high for kids and a dog's, and difficult getting kids into carseats.
OVERALL: outside of the transmission issue, this vehicle would have been good without any upgrades I listed. It's reliable, no engine issues and minimal maintenance costs. It's safe on the road and can drive well in all weather conditions. If you have a little money you want to put into upgrades you can really customize it and make it great!
Jim was very helpful with the car buying experience. Super nice overall great experience!
good but could be better

I bought a 2012 pro4x brand new a few years ago. I have around 11,000 miles on the car.
Things i like:
-ample space throughout
-4x4 ability (definitely better than most competitors)
-acceleration is good
Things i dont like
-gas mileage is terrible. more like 12-13 city and 15-16 highway
-no automatic seats for a top of the line car
-no gps for a top of the line car
-no backup camera for a top of the line car
-no seat warmers for a top of the line car
-rearview mirror tells you what direction you're going but not the outside temperature
in regards to reliability, i have had no issues with the car but i did get the extended warranty. Fixing cars can be expensive, especially on SUVs so I highly recommend people purchase it, it will save money down the road.
Was helped by John Caddy. He was thoughtful and called me back to follow up. I found exactly what I wanted. Audi 4 convertible. So excited. I brought the car!!

I bought this 06 Xterra used and have been driving it for a few months now. It took some getting used to after having drove a car for years. the handling is great for a taller vehicle, the gas mileage could be better, but overall, I'm glad I made the buy.
Professional, polite and efficient. He was fit for the needs of us and anybody who should come walking through the door. I would recommend Mark to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle.

This car meets basic needs but does not offer comfort or much in the way of features. Does not make for a good family car.
