Great for a growing family.
We love our Xterra. It is great for our small family. It has been super reliable and comfortable on long road trips. Plenty of room for large grocery trips, car seats fit well, and we always feel safe while driving it. Our Xterra handles really well on ice and snow. This is the second Nissan vehicle we have purchased used (the first a Sentra). Our Nissan vehicles have by far been the most reliable, lasting vehicles that we've owned. Our only reason for selling the Sentra was that we needed something larger to have enough room for two carseats, our 80-lb black lab, and still have room for clothing, etc. When we go on road trips out of state to visit family.
