2008 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Truck is built very well. Good brakes, handling and performance. Seats are comfortable. Paint and build quality is spot on perfect. After a couple days of ownership noticed a rumble vibration at 35 mph and after a couple of trips back to the dealer service and driving other new ones all xterras 2008 seem to have this noise. Hopefully there will be a TSB soon to address this noise.
Bilstein shocks, wheels/tires, fit and finish, full frame, simple to change oil and general maintenance. Good resale value. Not another car with big tires.
Develop a fix for the rumble vibration problem at 35 mph. Add manual locking hubs to improve gas mileage.
