2008 Nissan Xterra X 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Well I am a camper, hunter, and an outdoorsmen and this vehicle does it all. I also needed something to tow my two atv's to the sand dunes and with a 5,500 lb. towing capacity it is a breeze. I also considered the fj cruiser but after test driving both this was the clear choice. the xterra has more horsepower more torque and similar features, but is alot cheaper. the fuel economy is bad but for me it is worth the 265 hp and 281 ft. lb. torque. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who needs a daily driver but also spends a considerable amount of time off road.

Best Features

The vq40 is a beast of a motor, absolute best in its class. love the roof rack and step side bumper. On the fly 4wd is easy to use. 4 low is like a tank very impressive. Ground clearance. stiff steering is responsive and great for off road applications. steel wheels are tough and wont damage easy

Worst Features

The ergonomics of the steering wheel seat and peddles are a little off and make for a little discomfort. the break peddle is too soft. rear windshield wiper is kinda lame and doesn't work well.
