Hey, names Kevin. I'm currently in the market for an Xterra. Did some research, and had to stick with Nissan. No other sport utility vehicle seems to really compare to the Xterra for what I want. I currently have a '05 350Z std. and will be buying a '09+ pro 4x as soon as I return from deployment. Planning on doing light upgrades to the X as most of my extra cash goes into the Z.

Originally from Michigan but living in Copperas Cove, TX. I'm only a month in so around beginning of summer next year. Tell you what I would love to have one here in the desert.

good choice. out of the other two in that segement, i also thought the xterra won. i have had....

jeep jk wrangler- excessive interior water leaks that cant be fixed! really? on their flagship vehicle. the 3.6 was a BIG IMPROVEMENT THO.

toyota fj cruiser- steering wheel shimmy at 60-70 mph. right off the lots. new. cant be fixed with balance/tires/alignment. really? nice vehicle, but design flaw. their other suv's built on that platform do this too. i know. test drove them new, right off the lot, same shimmy. toyota is ending the fj in 2014.

xterra- so far i love it. 13,000 miles and no issues to speak of. fun to drive and own. some complain about mileage, but the above two are no better. i get about 17.5-18.

- I have a friend in PA thats in the reserves back home and loves it, I'm Signal.

- The fj was out of the question, just don't like them. I had a 95 yj with a 4 banger during college and I loved it, but the jk is garbage for towing. ha and if I cared about mileage I would buy a prius. When it comes down to it IMO its the best body on frame vehicle offered, and I love the VQ platform. Thanks for the welcomes, glad to be apart of the site!
