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!

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.
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!
