2015 Nissan Xterra Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
In spite of the fact that this car normally receives a reliability rating of 5/10, I have found that if you perform the required preventive maintenance, the car will provide outstanding reliability. full 2012 Nissan Xterra review
2012 4dr SUV 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Bulletproof. Drive and enjoy. Wear and tear is the only things you will care about. Trust me, I owned 4 of them, and they all are still in the family. This vehicle withstands a real abuse. If you do minimal maintenance - it will serve you for 10 years at least. full 2012 Nissan Xterra review
