I've got a first Gen 2002 XE 4WD with 317,000 and still runs/drives perfectly. I need to purchase a vehicle for my 81 year old mother, and was going to buy her another Xterra so that she can get around well in Iowa winters. I'm unfamiliar with the 2nd Gen Xterras, and am wondering if the engines/drivetrains are as good as the experience I've had with my 2002 (if properly maintained)? Are there better years than others, or were there any years that had a lot of issues that I should stay away from?

Honestly, if your 81 mother drives like most other 81 year olds drive (super slow, or super crazy no offense), I probably wouldn't get a top heavy Xterra. I'd go Subaru to deal with the winter conditions.
