I have my 2003 Nissan Xterra for sale. It's a 4x4 with auto transmission and only 83k miles.


-Body is straight and clean, no major dents/dings. No rust.
-Timing belt/water pump were replaced at 75k miles
-New shocks within last 10k miles.
-Tires are in good shape with at 50% tread left.
-NEW windshield this week
-NEW emissions test this week.
-Clean Autocheck report, will provide upon request


-As discovered by a PPI, this Xterra has a cracked exhaust manifold. These are extremely common in this model of Xterra due to a manufacturing defect. This results in a "ticking" sound that increases as the RPMs increase. This has no effect on drivability, reliability, or performance. It also does not affect your emissions, as evidenced by the passing result of the emissions test. I was quoted at ~$425 to fix this at Saul's Automotive in Denver, it may be more or less if you decide to do it somewhere else. Or just drive it like it is, which is what I have been doing.

-There are small imperfections in the paint on the hood. Its not super noticeable, but it is there. No ides what it is from, but it never bothered me and overall the paint is in good condition for a 13 yr old car.

Price is obo, but keep in mind this is one of the lowest mileage 1st gen Xterras within 500 miles, and also has all major maintenance items already completed. 2005+ models have serious transmission issues, which you will not get with this year.

Trade offers welcome, worst I can say is no. I'm looking specifically for a Outback XT or a Volvo V50 AWD with a manual transmission. Car is located in Denver metro area.

Title is clean and in hand. Looking for $7,500
