2008 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Initial impressions - well built, impressive engine. So far so good. Having come from an original 1998 Frontier I realize how many advancements have occurred in 10 years. This vehicle gives confidence on and off road - something my old truck lacked. Looked at the FJ but the Xterra is the better value.
Engine, engine, engine. All hail the VQ.
I am 5'10" and feel there are some strange ergonomics in the armrest and window switches with my current seating position. Also, I have never been a fan of shift on the fly or switch activation. I wish it had a good old fashioned lever. Bring canteen green back.
