2010 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this vehicle wanting to have a multipurpose vehicle that could also pull a boat. I looked at the CRV, ford escape, Rav4, 4runner. The first 3 really couldn't do the job of pulling a boat and are really more of a car dressed as an SUV. The 4 runner is nice, but too big to also have in the city and also expensive. So far the Xterra has been perfect. I have taken it on and off road many times and it handles great. Definitely more of a truck ride, but on any half decent road it feels just like any other modern vehicle.
can pull a boat, fold down seats make for good hauling, comfortable drivers seat, easy to spot in a parking lot!
