This is my 4th Nissan, from a BT-10 Datsun, Pathfinders, 280-Z, to my new Xterra, and I am most pleased. I feel so very safe with its remarkable handling and ease in driving.
Its fabulous transmission -- have not wanted anything but a stick shift, but this automatic transmission is okay by me -- I can easily identify what the gears are doing and that extra low is remarkable, as I live in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and offroad is the name of the game.
Just keep in mind short people appreciate your vehicles, too. I've had to attach a lower handle to my rear door in the back in order to pull it down and close it. And of course put on a side step, which is great.
