Awesome fast car review: 2013 Nissan Xterra On-Road Drive and Review (Part 2)

( ) The 2013 Nissan Xterra PRO-4X is a very off-road worthy traditional SUV. In other words it is not one of those new fangled crossovers. Instead it has a traditional body on frame design with a normally aspirated powerful V6 engine. And since we are testing the top of the line PRO-4X Xterra, we also get all of the good off-road bits like stiffer shocks and underbody protection. In this second (Part 1) fun and informative TFLcar on-road review Nathan gets his take on the 2013 Nissan Xterra as a family road-going family hauling machine. Does the 2013 Nissan Xterra work as a family truckster when the road is smooth and paved? Just watch this video to find out.

  1. I rent this Frankenstein ir is horrible ugly mpg horrible hard plastic is made cheap that’s why nissan took out of the market

  2. If the kid can't reach the door handle then he or she probably has no business opening it themselves anyway in the possibility of banging it into someone else's car parked next to you. I consider it a nice feature.

  3. need to do some reviews on older 4×4 so we know what used cars/trucks/SUV we should buy. Do to this video and MANY others I am loving the xterra. I am looking at the 2000 SE. would like to see one go up these mountains… Thanks for the videos. One more thing would like to see " Top 10 offroad worthy under 5k and 10k. You guys should also do a cheap truck challenge.

  4. I personally own a 2012 Nissan Xterra Pro 4x. I average 18mpg. Through an average tank of gas for me it does get driven like a rally car, it also gets driven 19 miles highway to work. I still average 18mpg. This is coming from some one who traded in a diesel vw jetta for it. In the jetta i averaged 47mpg with an AFE cold air intake. SAME DRIVING(before cold air intake i got 44mpg).

  5. This car is for young men who go camping or outdoors with their friends, that's why the designers didn't take into consideration weather a child can reach the door handle or not. it's not really a family car but even if it was it's not a major flaw

  6. All the utility and offroad capability in the world is useless if you can't afford the fuel to get out of town. And therein lies the problem with this ancient vehicle. No improvement in fuel economy. When the Xterra first came out, gas was in the low one dollar a gallon range. But now it's up in the 3's and 4's and that makes something like this very expensive to own and operate. 

  7. You guys didn't mention one huge benefit that the Xterra has over the competition… Towing capacity is far greater on the Xterra. If you are looking for an off-road play toy you are buying a Jeep. If you are the rest of the 99% of the population looking for a practical mid-sized SUV that can tow a decent amount AND go off road to a camp site, have lots of utility, and have 4 real doors then the Xterra wins easily.

  8. It's a TRUCK … meant for MEN who can hunt, kill ,& field dress a deer , start a fire without a Bic lighter , and keep a woman happy without cable TV – all night long , then be up by sun up and have breakfast ready on the campfire . Shifting gears is part of the game . 

  9. I just got a 2014 Pro 4X for about 34K. For the price I got a lot of goodies like back-up camera, navigation system, all the Pro-4X features, and it has one of the best sound systems I've heard in a car in this price range. These true SUVs are a dying breed but I love it. The ride quality and noise level is really good for a traditional SUV and I highly recommend it to anybody who is tired of all the pansy crossovers out there. 

  10. ignorant? you are statement proves just that about yourself. The Landcrusiers used by many including the UN are not leaf sprung. Neither I believe the last 2 generations of the Nissan patrol. The Mercedes GL doesn't and maybe even the G class. Also I don't think current Pajeros are leaf sprung. Suggesting coils are more than good enough, and its just cost cutting by Nissan, which comes at a cost to on road comfort and drivability

  11. How ignorant, Leaf spring is a must for proper off roading. Much more articulation for much more flex and grip than Independent suspension. There is Independent up front though, Jeeps have both with Leaf.
