2009 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Wow, is all I can say about this new Xterra. I just got this 09 Off Road X and I think it was the best decision I could have made. I traded in a 06 Rubicon; the Rubicon was a sweet ride but not travel friendly! Really bad gas mileage; like 9.4 miles per gallon on the highway. I got rid of the jeep and thought I was going to get the Toyota FJ, but ended up coming home with the Xterra. Reasons: I can see out of the X, the X doesn't need premium gas, the X has four doors, and the off road packages for both are the same. After driving each for a whole day the winner was the Xterra.
The looks, and Nissan isn't going to stop making the Xterra any time soon!!
My only complaint is that it does not have an outside temp gauge and some dislike the short arm rest, I can deal with that.
