I have owned my 2005 Xterra for just over 2 years now. I have had not one problem with this vehicle. Gas mileage for city driving may not be the best but I will trade that any day for a vehicle I know I can rely on. The 4.0 V6 engine delivers maximum power and quite honestly still suprises me at times when I find myself passing some sport cars. The Rockford Fosgate 6 disk system sounds amazing in the truck. Room is ample and dials and controls are easy to manage. I would definitely buy another but it seems as if this one will last me for a long while.
I went to the Xterra after trading in a 2005 M3, so I wasn't sure what to expect when looking at mid-sized SUV's. Fact of the matter is that the Xterra is an excellent automobile for the money. The M3 was obviously a completely different vehicle and I needed something a little more cost effective and something that I could use as an everyday drive with my dogs and home improvement... etc. Basically, It was time for a work horse not a sports car. The Xterra is def quick enough that I can do what I need to do. Of course the tail slides and drag races are in the past, but the xterra handles itself very well for what it is. It's a comfortable drive and is responsive to driver demands. I've been very impressed with the braking system in particularly. It is very sensitive and I got it with 17K miles on it. The stereo leaves something to be desired and I don't have an outside thermometer, but they're not really any big deal. I drove the Murano, Vue, 4runner, and highlander before choosing the Xterra. The murano was a beast and it labored through acceleration and had way too much tilt on corners. It would accelerate well enough, but the engine was really working and loud. It was disappointing seeing how it is built on the Altima chassis and because I like the styling (except for that huge, hideous dash board!). The highlander drove like a car, but felt plastic and cheap, seemed much smaller too. The vue was a good drive, but it just didn't fit me right. I did really like the 4runner, but they were harder to find what I wanted and were always a couple grand more. The 4runner had a good drive, but felt a little too much like a truck at times. All-in-all, the Xterra is a great vehicle for the price and I give it a strong recommendation. I love the roof racks and all the internal tie downs. The seats lie down flat and the bottom sections can come out for tons of storage space as well. It is obviously a vehicle of convenience and designed to be used. Great buy
I drove a 2005 for less than a year before I was hit by someone who ran a red light. I loved my Xterra and after seeing how safe I was and my passenger it made me like it even more. I would recommend it to a friend, it has the pick up of a small V8 and the overall durability that will match any SUV.
