Hi guys, I recently bought a 2007 XE 4 cyl/5 speed. I'm using it mainly as a commuter vehicle with homeowner hauling duties-I just sold an F150 I'd had for 7 yrs. I prefer driving 4 cylinders with manual transmissions-I feel it's more fun! The 2.5 is a decent revving engine and pulls well at low rpm. The first two tankfulls came in at 23 & 24 mpg driving normally 50/50 city/highway. I'm sure this tank won't do as well because I've been driving it harder & crusing @ 80 mph. The interior is a little plain but at 6'2" and 275 lbs I'm very comfortable in it. I've owned 6 ford pickups in my life (I'm 55) & this is my first Nissan-being built in Tennessee made me more comfortable with buying an "import".
