Nissan Xterra Overview
The Xterra feels crude in everyday driving, but it is very capable off-road. Although the ride is stiff, handling is relatively responsive. The strong 4.0-liter V6 engine delivers quick acceleration and the five-speed automatic shifts smoothly, but they combine to return overall fuel economy of just 17-mpg. The four-wheel-drive system is a rudimentary, switch-activated part-time type. The basic interior looks rugged and is well-assembled. The Pro-4X off-road trim line has an electronic hill-descent control that maintains a very low speed on slippery downhill grades. Reliability has been above average, but the Xterra scores too low to be recommended.
