The 2013 Nissan Xterras in this analysis were driven mostly on the highway at an average speed of 80 kilometers per hour about 85 percent of the kilometers driven. I was thinking the same thing for mods, but just didn't want to throw money at it without some proof that it would help. Over 100 miles, that means you arrive about a minute and a half earlier.
Odometer is 28329 miles below market average! If you want the strong chassis and off road performance you will feel it at the pump. I love this truck so much I plan to buy another one when the time comes to replace it. Not sure if I can afford to do either right now, but I'll see what I can do. On the 2001 Nissan Xterra V6 engine you follow the bottom radiator hose and that leads to the thermostat. If you are thinking about buying one do so. Figured someone here would know the answer. There are places that will change the bearings on the shaft and it is… Yes, it is located by the pulley in the front.
The rest of the kilometers were in the city 5 percent , in heavy traffic 2 percent , and in the suburbs 0 percent. Just hoping there might be something I can do to improve the mileage, even if just a bit. The engine is bullet-proof and will not die, though the interior could use some upgrading, as it shows lots of hard plastics. It almost looks like a cell phone car charger. Of course, just like any other high dollar mod, how much to you really save after spending all of that money to begin with? You will never get as good as the number on the window sticker unless you drive like my grandma. About three months later I put a programmer in it and it seems to do a little better on gas on the high way but I havent checked it yet. It's going to be heartbreaking when I do finally have to replace it.
I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra, 2wd, V6 automatic not the super charged version. I previously had the 2002 and got a whopping 14. I am keeping mine for at least another four years. Anonymous Unregistered Hey, as soon as I saw you were getting 17mpg, I was wondering how you managed that! Mine has almost 100,000 miles on it and it still drives great and have never had any problems at all. Anonymous Unregistered I didn't mean to imply that I was going to do the mods. If your windshield… I've only done this on a standard, so hopefully it helps, Step 1: Locate the 2 upside down gray screws above radio.
I get 14 - 15 miles per gallon. I coast whenever I can, and don't race to the next stop knowing it will more than certainly not get me there faster. I've owned it since new. Sadly, 7 years of Xterra ownership - a 2000 and now an '02 - has led to one conclusion: it gets what it gets and I'm not going to worry about it. Mine is an Off Road and I know it carries more weight, than a 4x2, but if I'm really lucky I get 13mpg, and when I'm just driving back in forth in town 11mpg,ouch!

Are you saying that you used the same exact number of gallons of gas? That being said, I love my X and wouldn't trade it for any other vehicle. I open the windows for air when on city roads. I've driven this car up and down the west coast several times, through mountains, deserts, sandy conditions, camping, near water, in monsoons and in bumpy terrain. Regular maintenance has kept our Xterra up to speed, but it is starting to show its age. Problem is, when outfitted with all the goodies it can bear, its price overlaps that of its more sophisticated big brother.
Off road modifications like extra armor, dual spare tires, larger tires, and gear don't help either. Its slightly slower accel than average, but I deal with it just fine. I just took it in and they got me a new one for 20bucks. Who knows, maybe I'm totally wrong and it's all more than worth it. Stone Don't think I've seen it mentioned before, but what about aftermarket rims.
