Handles like a sports car! Very fast and agile....Stops on a dime and pulls my 22' boat with ease.....Turns on a dime and easy to park in small places....I recently took it camping and slept in the back like a tent.....good ground clearance for these bumpy flood prone Houston streets!
The Versatile Xterra
2014 Nissan XterraBZ Dad - Westminster, CA08/09/2015
This vehicle is just plain useful. From bringing home lumber on the roof rack to the storage under the cargo floor for tools and road side emergency supplies. I have a place for everything so there's nothing rolling around. I love the first aid kit cavity in the hatch. Two glove boxes, an oversized sunglass cubby and this nifty space in front of the shifter that holds a book on CD as if it was meant to. Need more space, just fold down the rear seats. It drives very well considering this is a truck underneath. For one tank of regular fuel I drove like your grandma and got 22 mpg combined city streets and freeway.
The 261hp 4.0 liter engine gets up and moves when you need it too. It does everything I need or expect it to do.
I really like the Xterra. For the money I think its a great buy. Its got good (not great) acceleration, but Im not a hot rodder anyway. Its comfortable, feels solid, and its got a nice and simple design (which I like)--not alot of frills and gadgetry to go wrong and break. I feel really great driving my kids in it, and I like that I feel I can go explore backroads, mountains, etc., without worrying about getting stuck (I have the 4wd version). Gas mileage is not so good, but its not a trade off I mind, considering all you get for it. Overall quite satisfied.
