The Nissan Xterra is a great suv for the money! I have not had to perform and maintainance other than brakes and oil change. I rated the comfort level as a 4 out of 5 stars because it has a rigid ride like a truck (this being that it is set on a Nissan Frontier chasis). Overall, for the money this is an excellent buy! And no need to go for the SE trim...it's the exact same as a fully loaded XE, but it doesn't have a roof. The roof in an SE proves to be a pain anyways because the basket that sits above it. In addition, the roof is a pop-up roof. Go for the fully loaded XE for a cheaper price!
Best vehicle I have ever owned...

This is a great all around 4WD vehicle. I have had trucks and jeeps (TJ's) and this is the best of both worlds. You have your 4wd and towing capabilities without having to have an overly large truck. It fits the kids in the back perfectly and has the ability to add cargo space when needed by folding down the rear seats. It gets what you would expect for gas mileage. Does it have all of the bells and whistles? Nope but it has everything that I need. My only modification is replacing the factory stereo and speakers with a DVD/Nav unit.
perfect for everything

this SUV is perfect for everything, handles and rides great on the highway and paved roads. Off road is where it is most at home. I took mine to Moab, UT and went over trails like Poison Spider Mesa, I had more looks form people that took custom built off roaders and many wondering how I got this up there without breaking it. it has very long suspension travel for a SUV I was amazed by the amount of travel. to my surprise I had the A/C on the whole time I did not even notice and the engine temp never rose above normal
