You'll Like The 2011 Nissan Xterra If...

If a removable hardtop is not a feature you covet, the next best thing to owning a Jeep Wrangler is owning the 2011 Nissan Xterra. The Xterra's interior is more civilized than the Jeep's, not to mention quieter.

A very good and dependable vehicle that was sold at a good value.

My Xterra has performed very well for the 7 years I have owned it. It is very reliable and has required very little maintenance. It has 90,000 miles on it and it is on its second set of tires. I also have changed the battery. Other than that I have had no mechanical problems.

- Dan C

Sporty and reliable SUV with great looks.

This is a fun and reliable suv to drive. I have had only one repair completed. Maintenance is easy. Great in the snow too. Lots of storage for groceries. Comfortable and easy to see the road.

- becky m

It is very reliable and handles very well.

I like the feeling of protection. I like the interior. I like the comfort. I do not like the difficulty I sometimes face while trying to maneuver into a parking spot.
