Good mid level "off roading" SUV

2010 Nissan Xterra Rybo - Jacksonville, FL 10/10/2012

Simply put, what you see is what you get. It's a beefy SUV designed to carry you and your cargo to wherever you want to go. Unless, of course, your cargo is composed of more than one additional human. Simply put, the back seat is laughably small. With all of the rear cargo space, I can't believe they'd leave only enough room for a medium sized man to sit comfortably in the back seat. Any bigger and your passengers will be splaying their legs out into the middle seat. The front seats are roomier, but, again, they don't leave any room to move the seat forward for the poor souls in the back seat. Non-human cargo, though, will fit fine. It obviously has a ton of interior cargo space and a huge opening for loading and unloading. All models have the gargantuan cargo racks atop the vehicle, but not all come with a trailer hitch (another cargo-related shortcoming). As for performance, it is adequate. It is inexplicably a rear wheel drive vehicle, so I can still spin out a little if I accelerate from a dead stop a little too zealously. At lower speeds, it accelerates admirably, but once I hit 40mph, it tends to want to down shift before accelerating (at which point it, again, accelerates admirably). Unfortunately, this does cause it to have a "dead zone" between maintaining your speed and feeling like you're gunning it; to accelerate at highway speeds, you can either patiently wait for it to get to the new speed in its current gear, or you can give it enough gas to downshift and get there faster than you really want to. By far the biggest downside to this car, though, is the gas mileage. It's not as though they hide it: it says 15-20 mpg right there on the sticker, but that may not hit home until using it on your daily commute. I drive 180 miles to and from work every week. Round it up to 250 miles a week for errands and the like, and I'm still putting 15 gallons into this beast weekly at best (generally close to every 6 days). As for interior amenities, it's got AC, stereo, various levels of steering wheel mounted controls, etc, as well as a few "nice" features like the telescopic adjustable steering wheel, lots of outlets, and lots of little nooks and crannies for you to put your goodies. My model lacks several things I'd like to see in a rugged vehicle such as this: tire pressure sensors, digital compass, and outdoor thermometer. If you want those things, I'm sure this model offers it -- you just have to pay! As I said at the outset, what you see is what you get. If you want a beefy car to carry lots of stuff to exotic places, this car will not disappoint. If you do a lot of highway commuting and carpooling, there are considerably better options out there -- but then again, that's not what this car is trying to be!

finally got my Xterra!

2010 Nissan Xterra Rachel - Houston, TX 05/23/2011

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.

'10 Xterra Off Road - Power Plus

2010 Nissan Xterra Bud - York, PA 01/11/2010

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.
