2010 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

After Telluride last year and Moab this year I decided it was either Big $$ to upgrade the Rubicon or stop and go in another direction. Here in Northern NM mountains, the Xterra has very capable attributes. I've had it on one of the roughest off-roads in the area with no problemes at all. The ground clearance is better than a stock '06 Rubicon and the stock tires are taller. The extra wheel base gives the Xterra an edge over the Rubicon for comfort. Cargo space is a huge winner and the power sealed the deal. The AT takes some getting use to in 4WD as I now drive with the brake rather than the gas/clutch. I'm 6'4" and the fit is perfect. Family's 9th Nissan w/wife's current '09 Pathfinder

Favorite Features

Power, Bilstein shocks, ground clearance, firm seats, quiet ride, cargo space, good 360 degree view.

Suggested Improvements

Needs serious slider bars for the rocker panels. Skid plates are a joke - Wife's cookie sheets just might be thicker. Heated outside mirrors and ext. temp gauge would help. Bulbous front bumper should be replaced with a real bumper and good tow points. Needs a lock for the storage space on top.
