Xterras are great but can be problematic and expensive to fix/ up keep.

2006 Nissan Xterra X

I really like the height of my xterra. I am tall and I like the spaciousness of the car. It makes me feel safer when I drive as well because the xterra is nice and high off the ground. I have experienced some issues with the axle of the car when I went to check my wheel alignment. I don't normally go off roading or anything so I thought that was kind of weird. It's okay on gas. I believe it is a 6 cylinder vehicle. I have heard from different mechanics that Xterras are difficult to work on because it's 'like they fit a large engine into a smaller vehicle frame,' besides that, I really like my xterra. I love driving it and it has a really good turning radius.

Very Reliable, long lasting family car

2006 Nissan Xterra X

The overall interior is pretty plain, and there's a lack of cup holders which has actually become a pain at points. It is a very reliable car all around, mine is almost at 300,000 miles and still runs smoothly and I think it will last for at least another 2 years. The only recurring issue I've had is the power connection to the battery, the connectors have had to be replaced twice because they rusted and eventually couldn't keep a consistent current from the battery.

Worth the investment. All around reliable vehicle.

2006 Nissan Xterra X

This vehicle is very reliable. It rides very smooth even though it is a four wheel drive vehicle. It gets great gas mileage. The only maintenance has been regular, no big breakdowns. The interior is very comfortable. It has a surround sound system. There is room for five very comfortably. Mine also came with a luggage rack which is very convenient for long trips.

Great first car or learner vehicle.

2006 Nissan Xterra X

This is a great vehicle for learner drivers and as a first car. Only con is the gas mileage, and I have found that little things constantly need fixing. It's very durable and comfortable. The trunk space is very large, and the seats can be folded down to create even more space.
