My 2005 Nissan Xterra has wonderful mileage, low maintenance and gas lasts!

2005 Nissan Xterra S

I own a 2005 Nissan Xterra! It's a really nice truck to say that I absolutely know nothing about cars and this is my first vehicle. It's a low maintenance vehicle, so there is rarely something wrong with it. The only real problem I've had with this truck with owning it was my driver side window getting stuck, my brakes and my air conditioner! It drives smoothly and has a lot of trunk space! Gas also lasts awhile in my truck!

Fun, but not very well built

2005 Nissan Xterra S

the car is comfortable and safe, but small things have broken on it like the center console, power switch, drivers side window, and also the heat shields. Good gas mileage, but is also loud when driving on freeway. Factory radio went out so replaced it with a third party one that sounds better anyways.

Worth the value, all around great SUV.

2005 Nissan Xterra S

Vehicle fits my needs and is very reliable. Service is not too expensive and easy to perform. High clearance is my preference in vehicles and the Xterra is perfect for off roading and in town use. Performs very well, not the best on gas, but is practical for an SUV.
