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.
My wife and I went to look at the 2018 Nissan Rogue AWD. Zack was our salesperson and he did a great job, he knew the vehicles and the options with extreme detail. He was able to answer any questions with total confidence.

AS SUV'S GO....VERSATILE, DEPENDABLE, STYLISH. Easy towing...could be better gas mileage.....owned for 7 years...will use in retirement for ride share use soon. see ya soon
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!
I recently purchased a classic car for my wife from this dealer. The salesman I dealt with was Garth. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly, straightforward and honest. Our transaction took place over the phone and Garth went out of his way to assist in the purchase and delivery of the vehicle. The vehicle arrived at our home the next day and it EXCEEDED all of our expectations. The gentleman who delivered the car (Jerry) was a sheer delight to talk to. I would highly recommend these folks and will deal will deal with them again in the future.

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.

This is the best dealership I have ever been to. And that's saying a lot. I have owned many vehicles and I have never been treated as well in my life as safford treated me. Words can't describe the quality of people there. They let me know the status of my vehicle whenever I asked immediately, and we're very professional. I will be buying all my vehicles and having any service I need done there from now on.
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
I had a great experience here at Lovettsville Auto. Everyone here is honest and very welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody searching for a used car.
Best vehicle ever made!

We bought the Xterra in 2002 and it's STILL going strong. This car has made 2 cross country trips and multiple trips from VA to FL. We have had some work done, but nothing major or extremely expensive, which in the course of 16 years is outstanding. It's going to be heartbreaking when I do finally have to replace it.
EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE, GREAT PRICING AND NO PRESSURE SALES CLOSE TO HOME. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE DEALER TO ANYONE. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT CAR. REGARDS, BOB
Very good for reliable used SUV!

I have owned this for over a year and it’s been extremely reliable and just changed the plugs and seals to the intake manifold as you have to remove the manifold to change plugs!
