I've owned my Xterra for 3 years now and
what an all-around no nonsense
performer. I live in the mountains of
Colorado and have had it sideways at
angles that make you think you're
sitting in the passenger's lap. Been
over snowy passes, muddy back-roads,
even bumped a guard rail at a pretty
good clip on a slick, icy road, and it
just knocked it out of alignment a bit.
I've had kayaks, canoes, skis, boards
and other misc. on top of it and I've
been nearly ocean to ocean in it. If
you take care of it, it'll take care of you!
Roof rack is irreplaceable for any
My only improvement would be more power,
which they've already added in later
models. But I still pass more than I'm
passed going over Eisenhower and Vail
