Nissan Xterra

2008 Nissan Xterra Gailie - Monterey CA 04/01/2012

Iam in love with my Nissan Xterra. It looks great, drives great, enough room inside for my son and I. If I had to say 1 negetive thing about it, it would be that there are no armrests. Neither the driver or passenger has armrests so at times I find myself searching for a place to put my elbow. LOL. Other than that I would highly recommend Nissan.

Great General Purpose Vehicle

2008 Nissan Xterra Road Burner - San Antonio, TX 04/28/2009

This is a very versatile vehicle. Holds 5 passengers comfortably but converts to large cargo capacity. The engine is responsive and the 5 speed automatic transmission operates seamlessly. Transmission kickdown is a nicely controlled event with no extreme reving or jerking. 5000 pound towing capacity is not limited to use of a weight distribution hitch like others in its class. Valley has a hitch that matches this capacity and useage. Power outlet in the rear is nice if you use a 12v fridge. Unless you're really short you have to duck your head to get in the front seats, but it's comfortable once you get settled. The center arm rest is too low and too far back so finding a good position for your right arm is difficult. The previous owner used a plug for a tire repair and it started leaking on the first long trip. The tire monitor caught the problem and a proper repair was done. The tire monitor took a couple of days before it reset. Overall it's a good, solid, useful vehicle if you don't need all the bells and whistles.

Deserves Its Great Reputation

2008 Nissan Xterra Joseph - Greensboro, NC 12/07/2012

If you're looking at an Xterra, chances are you already know that they get incredibly high reviews across the board. Consumer Reports has given glowing endorsements of Xterras from 2008�2011, as well as the older generation (2001�2004). From what we've experienced, this vehicle lives up to those positive reviews, and then some! It's a perfect blend of rugged off road ability, and interior creature comforts. We bought the high end trim, called "SE". That means, in addition to the standard things shared by the "X" and "S" trim lines, it adds on a majorly upgraded sound system by Rockford Fosgate, including all new speakers, better amp, a 6CD in-dash changer, two additional speakers in the front dash, and an added subwoofer under the driver's seat. The "SE" trim also adds bluetooth connectivity for your telephone (but not iPod), voice command recognition (voice memos, controlling the phone), on-steering-wheel audio controls, auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass and outside temperature, the trip odometer gets upgrades, so you can see your average MPG, distance to empty, trip time, etc. The "SE" gets larger aluminum wheels (17" instead of 16"), side step rails, fog lights, an auxilliary input jack for plugging in an iPod/iPad for music, a large removable cargo net in the back (along with the easy-clean rear compartment), and an exterior side strip of rubber to prevent door dings. It's also got window rain guards, which don't come on the low end "X" trim. It's a truck, to be sure, which means the ride is rougher than a Lexus, but compared to other trucks I've owned, this is by far the most comfortable. It's a BLAST to drive, and evidently they last forever.
