4X4 5-Speed: 2001 Nissan Xterra 4wd

The Nissan Xterra was a plus sized compact SUV that was sold from 1999 through 2015 in the US market.  It wasn't the best off roader on the block, but it combined great road manners with decent mud capabilities, Japanese reliability, and available manual gearbox...can't hate that.  Find this 2001 Nissan Xterra 4wd 4x4 5 speed SUV offered for $1800 in Cincinnati, OH via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.


 From the seller:
2001 Nissan Xterra - No trades

3.3 V6 4wd Manual Transmission 226k miles - Heat and AC work fine 

Was my daily driver until February when I got a Cooper, and I still drove the Nissan more. Got a truck two weeks ago and don't really need the Nissan or the Cooper anymore. 

Had a bad clutch line when previously posted, has since been replaced and bled. Runs and drives fine. Needs an alignment from the new suspension parts. Also, no trades, just selling her.

All the extra parts that could be included are due to me wanting to do some preventative MX and have some fun before gifting it to my daughter. Put all the parts on it and have a nice solid ride, or take it off road and make it a toy. 

For the total package $1800. I cannot trade as I was planning previously. Cash only 

I do not need to get rid of this, so I'm not giving it away. It's in good shape and I have tons of money into it. At $1800, you're getting brand new 6-lug wheels and tires and paying $600 for a 4x4 Xterra in decent shape with tons of new parts for it. I can keep this and teach the kid to drive on a manual like we all should, so please refer to the pricing list for options below.

Now, for the list of stuff if anybody would like to read it... 

-Has a brand new set of A/T wheels and tires ($1200 and less than a year/2k miles on them). 
-New brakes front and rear about a year and a half ago. 
-New valve cover and upper and lower intake gaskets (had a slight leak) about a year ago. (Under the covers is extremely clean with no sludge) 
-New passenger side CV axle, shock, a-arm, alignment pins and lower ball joint are already on, which is how I found the leaking clutch line before. Only needed the CV axle, but wanted to do it all for prevention. Not aligned as I had the rest to do beforehand, but still rides okay, pulls a little too the right. 
-Has brand new clear headlights and bulbs, as well as HID driving lights wired into the fog light circuit (very bright). 
-Tuneup including the PITA #6 plug done about a year and a half ago. 
-New distributor installed when I got the truck
-Newer radiator and coolant about a year and a half ago. 
-Interior was removed, cleaned and reinstalled when I got it 2 years ago. 
-New speakers in the rear as well as new $140 components in the front. Had a nice bt touchscreen in it when I stopped driving it, but no longer. It has a factory radio now. I have another touchscreen for $300 more installed if wanted. 
-Power everything with steering wheel controls. Only thing that doesn't work is the rear window washer sprayer. 
-Light clear coat peeling on back quarter panel


-I have about $1k worth of new parts to go with it if the price is right or traded for something worthwhile. (Headers, CV axles, A-arms, alignment pins, lower ball joints, tie rod ends, steering rod, all shocks, sway bar bushings and links, throttle sensor, coolant temp sensor and crankshaft position sensor and a half dozen key blanks.) 

It didn't need the front end parts or sensors as I was already driving it as it was, it really only needed the passenger CV axle, but I was wanting to do preventative mx while possibly giving the truck to my daughter, but I'm not sure she will be comfortable with a manual transmission just yet.

  1. Had one of these the first year they came out. At the time, their styling was considered to be somewhat ahead of the curve. It drove quite well and never had a lick of shit out of it. Never went off roading or anything, but I dug it. Outside of the dated headlights I still think it looks pretty good.

  2. Did they make a supercharged 5 speed version?
    My cousin had a supercharged manual Taco. It was awesome and had mad supercharger whine.

    1. I think they did actually... which would have been very sweet.

  3. This is a pretty good deal if there aren't any rust issues hidden underneath.

    1. Had an '07 FJ as well, and agree, dig the look of it too. More rear room in the XTerra, but the FJ had a more solid ride over the rougher stuff... gas mileage in the FJ was *horrendous*... worse than what was advertised.

  5. Looks great with the mailbox/snorkel option.
