I own a 2005 Xterra.
I used to have a 2001 it was great except for the lack of power. But after 2005 they have fixed that issue & it has a lot of power.
Take off is quick & strong. Gas isn't bad either, i get around 20MPG on Highway
Both 01,05 have a lot of room compared to any other mid size SUV.
Leg room is great, head room is also great.
Trunk is a lot bigger then any other Mid-Size SUV.
One problem i have seen in the 2005 is that after a while the Hood starts to squeak, the rubber stoppers in the hood tend to get squished, thus making the squeaking noise. Once you change it, it stops. $6 at the dealer.
If i was going to get another SUV i would get an Xterra again.
I have the SE model, i would suggest not to get it.
Off-Road model is the Max trim you should stay with. I kinda regret getting the SE i dont see any difference in SE compared to the S, except for the Radio & Mirror that has a compare on it.
