I love the look of the vehicle.

2002 Nissan Xterra

I enjoy my Nissan Xterra, SUV. It is roomy and easy to handle for my dog and myself. Going to the market or just running errands gives me the options to run economically as opposed to my Silverado. I can pull the seats down to transport large items, there’s room for people and their luggage when going to the airport. I do not hesitate to take road trips because of the comfort and the mileage I get driving. My dog enjoys the roominess of th3 vehicle as well. I highly recommend the Xterra.

Nissan Xterra, a great and spacious vehicle.

2002 Nissan Xterra

My 2002 Nissan Xterra has been an extremely enjoyable vehicle. I use it as a daily driver and have no complaints at all. There's so many different things to love about this car, such as the interior space, dependability, durability, good looks, plenty of truck space, and reasonable gas mileage for a midsize SUV. I have owned many different vehicles and this is by far my favorite across the board. I highly recommend it if you are looking to buy a midsize SUV.

2002 Nissan Xterra Ripped Off

2002 Nissan Xterra

I think I got ripped off with the one I bought, but I've had nothing but issues with it. There is some sort of electrical issue with it so my windows do not go down and the rear defroster doesn't work. There is also a large hole in the exhaust. It started out as a work vehicle for a few months and now I just drive it to work. Other than the issues I'm having it's great in the snow, is very comfortable to drive, and I love the vehicle.
