2008 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I wanted a vehicle that would not leave me stuck on some remote ranch road and would tow a decent sized trailer. I added mud terrain tires. It has done all I have wanted and I am still pushing the limits.
Drive train with 4 wheel limited slip, hill descent, locking differential. Got the fancy sound system by default but I love it. Nothing like good XM tunes while in the middle of nowhere.
A few minor quibles: no outside temperature display, would like more seat adjustment, particularly up and down and gas mileage is only fair, 15 city, 18 road. I would trade a few horse power for better mileage.
