the 2011 Nissan Xterra S is our first Nissan. As far as brand we will never buy outside Nissan. The Xterra is a true SUV. Handles great off road and on long road trips. We love the outside design as well as the interior. For the price it is a great buy!!
The Xterra S comes with step-sides, fog lights, top cross bars, and off road tires. The interior is roomy and we love the plastic seat back/storage area. We found it to be one of the selling points of the SUV. We are big into the out doors life style, so it's east for clean up. We also LOVE the stadium back seating and how the back seats are removable for more storage room. This V-6 SUV has great power and tow capability.
For being a 2011 we would have loved to have a temperature gauges in the dash, with an IPOD option or hook up option. Blue-tooth would have also been a nice option.
