2010 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
When I purchased my off road x. I drove it around town and very little highway. Big mistake. It is not a highway or road trip vehicle. The stiff suspension is great in town and off road but you pay a price for a rough travel car. It's like riding a jack hammer. Like a jeep wrangler, it does poorly on the highway and at high speeds on the snow, it slips very easy! Not the best ski trip vehicle but great in town and off road.
Great off road! Good ground clearance and reliable. If you do a lot of highway driving, especially in the winter, you may consider a second car. Too bad but I can't afford 2 cars!
Have adjustable suspension for highway travel. The gas mileage for the off road is not accurate. It's more like 13city and 15 highway. Disappointed with inaccurate fuel economy!
