I'm looking to buy a 2001 Nissan Xterra for my son's first car.

It's a 2.4L 5 Speed Manual, I believe 2WD with 197,000 miles on it. The car appears to have been maintained very well however, I do not have any receipts on the truck.

I do not know much about the Xterra, so I'm hoping for advice as to whether we should make the purchase and/or if there are any parts of this vehicle in particular we should take a look at.

Thank you in advance!
with the a/c off car runs fine all the time
I just bought this vehicle Wednesday from a used dealer. Drove it all the way from the dealer to where I live, different counties. Noticed some smoke but figured from the heat being on, was told that isn't the case. Used a car MD device and the only thing that came up is a code for a replacing the part that stalls the knocking for a engine, nothing major. Please help!
