Having owned a 2000 Xterra, I had some expectations for this vehicle. Except for one concern, the 2010 Xterra Off Road has pleasantly surprised. The one concern: hard cornering on snow and slush, where I felt I needed to slow down to a crawl as this vehicle tries to go straight at all times. The larger engine has much more power than the 2000 had and moves out with the slightest pressure on the accelerator. The ride is very quiet and comfortable and the interior is well appointed. Lots of head room and leg room in front and back seats. A bit less cargo area until the back seats are dropped, then the updated layout pays off. The Rockford-Fosgate stereo system puts out a full rich sound at any speed and the Bluetooth connection for cell phone is a godsend! No hands needed. A very good upgrade from my 2000.
I wanted a 4X4, not a crossover. All of the 4X4's in the $25,000 price range were crossovers except for the Xterra. As a hunter and fisherman I have occasion to drive off road and the Nissan with a real steel rail chassis versus a stamped sheet metal platform is rugged enough and has the ground clearance to get me where I want to go.
The only trade off is the highway ride which is a little bumpier than say the RAV4 or CRX. Over all a great truck at a reasonable price.
finally got my Xterra!

I was upgraded to an Xterra as a rental car a couple of years ago...it is the only loaner I was ever SAD to give back. I purchased more of a plain Jane model so it was a bit of a donwgrade from my Altima SL...but I need something tough for my moving and packing business.
