Here's one for ya... bought Nitro 6 mo ago, never happy for a number of reasons. Xterra has excellent body fit, more acceleration smooth engine, good front seat legroom and overall is a better built vehicle smooth as a gravy sandwich. It sits higher, has similar gas mileage and low range transfer. Roof rack is a plus. I am much happier with this beautiful SE Xterra.
Build quality, looks, performance, smoothness of engine /drivetrain excellent auto tranny, superior interior, much more 4WD capable and aggressive capabilities. This is one of few affordable actual Colorado jeep trail capable 4WDs.
Off with the old stick antenna, improve and update cabin electronics... that's about it. This is truly one fine built and proven vehicle. It's a keeper.
