Hello! I just bought a 2003 Xterra from a mechanic (who replaced the timing belt, water pump, pulleys and hoses before I got there on the train that weekend) near my parents house outside of Philadelphia, and drove it straight home here to my ranch up in Vermont. It was great, but immediately after i got home the radiator cracked. And the brakes stunk. So, I just put a new radiator in it, new pads/rotors/bearings up front, and now I think I am going to do the valve cover gaskets, as they are leaking pretty bad. So far, I love this truck. I used to have a 2000 Frontier, and I had to get rid of it when the kids started popping our of my wife. This is sort of a perfect compromise!
