2009 Nissan Xterra S 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased new 2009. Rockford Fosgate sound system above average, nice technology package. Combined gas mileage (20% city, 80% hwy) is 21-22 mpg. Looks nice, rides comfortably, but I'm having hard time adjusting from previous full-size pickup truck. I am 6' tall, and I feel a little closed-in. Short arm rest is more like an elbow rest... it sucks. Test drive was good, but after a month I'm not so happy. 6 cylinder engine seems to have sufficient if not awesome power. Back seats are nice to have, but not much room for rear passengers unless you scoot front seats up. Plastic console dents easily (don't drop anything on it). Vehicle is shorter than some cars. Mixed feelings, but quality vehicle
Quality, gas mileage, appearance, premium sound system.
Real armrest, longer vehicle, more legroom, tougher plastic inside. Locking console. Perhaps more ground clearance/higher ride. Better brake pads (rims get dirty quickly with break dust, much more so than in any of 6 previous vehicles I've owned). Improve safety (only 3-4 star ratings).
