I have not gotten stranded anywhere
I've gone off road. The clearance is
10.3 inches (tallest in it's class).
Xterras have an excellent approach
angle. The fuel mileage is not bad
(18.5)for the weight:engine size
ratio. Get the SE/SC model if you can
cough up the cash. Plenty of leg room
for all 5 (five) passengers and room
for lots of gear (for 2-3 people). Roof
rack is sturdy with lots of optional
attatment available from YAKIMA.com
Audio equipment is awesome. A/C and
heater work great. There is lots of
room in the fender wells for big meats
and turning radius is tight. Test
drive one and see for your self, not
just on the pavement either.
Off road capabilities and interior room
are the two best features of this rig.
Instrument panel lenses that don't
scratch when they are repeatedly
cleaned and an improved MPG.
