Alright, I have been trying to figure this out for some time, and I am still confused, so maybe I can get some assistance here, since this seems like the right place. I am trying to figure out what trim my X is. There is nothing on the X itself that says one way or the other. I have graphics that came with it on the front doors reading "4x4", but that is it. When I bought it, they looked up the CarFax report, and it says "Nissan Xterra Off-Road SE". That doesn't seem right to me. I have the 5-spoke 16" rims, the trip computer, single CD player, and VDC. I am not thinking that I have the OR package, but why would CarFax say that I do. And, if not, do I just have the SE? It's killing me to know. Thanks!

If the 5 spoke wheels came stock then you have an S model.

The SE has 4 spole 17" wheels
The OR has 6 spoke 16" wheels
The S has 5 spoke 16" wheels
The X has 16" steel wheels

The wheels are the simpleast way to tell.

Then, just curious, why would CarFax have it listed as an "Off-Road SE" with my VIN number? Also, I thought I heard/read somewhere that the S did NOT have the trip computer. Could be wrong.

The S does not come stock with the trip computer, but it is an option.

There is no such model as an Off-Road SE, so my guess is that carfax is just confused, or carfax lists all their 05+ X's as Off-Road SE's.

The trip computer is only available in the SE model. I just check on nissan's website.

Did you buy the X used.

I bought my X used. And the trip meter looks like it came that way. It is part of the odometer setup. Also, the inside of my door just says Nissan Xterra. No trim. :(

On your tail gate is there an "SE"?

What is the year. Maybe the S had the computer as an option before 07.

Do you have fog lights? Auto/Manual? Hill descent? Rocksford stereo?

There is nothing on the tailgate. It is an 05 X. No foggies, auto, no hill decent (that I am aware of), apparent regular stereo. No clue.

My 05 Xterra has the trip meter in the odometer, VDC (automatic), no fog lights, no hill desend and the plain stock radio and it is an automatic. This is the "S" model that I have also manual door looks and windows.

Must have been an option to have the trip computer on an S model in 05.

If that is true then that has changed since 05. In the O5 the trip computer was an option in all models (SE and S) except the Off-Road.

my 06 S came with Trip A and Trip B on the odometer. I thought in 06 that was standard for the S

When I talk trip computer it means the computer that calculates the gas mileage, distance to empty, etc...

all X's have the trip A and B on the odometer.

Just looked at the window sticker that came on my "S" model and under standard equipment included at no extra charge is twin trip odometers.

Her eis what it says about the trip computer in the owners manual.

TRIP COMPUTER (if so equipped)
The display of the trip computer is situated in the
speedometer display. When the ignition is turned
to ON, the display scrolls all the modes of the trip
computer and then shows the mode chosen before
the ignition switch was turned OFF.
When the ignition switch is turned to ON, modes
of the trip computer can be selected by pushing
the trip computer change button. The following
modes can be selected:
Distance to empty (dte—mile or km)
The distance to empty (dte) mode provides you
with an estimation of the distance that can be
driven before refueling. The dte is constantly being
calculated, based on the amount of fuel in the
fuel tank and the actual fuel consumption.
The display is updated every 30 seconds.
The dte mode includes a low range warning
feature: when the fuel level is low, the dte mode is
automatically selected and the digits blink in order
to draw the driver’s attention. Press the
change button if you wish to return to the mode
that was selected before the warning occurred.
The dte mark (dte) will remain blinking until the
vehicle is refueled.
When the fuel level drops even lower, the dte
display will change to (----).
NOTE:
c If the amount of fuel added while the
ignition switch is OFF is small, the display
just before the ignition switch is
turned OFF may continue to be displayed.
c When driving uphill or rounding curves,
the fuel in the tank shifts, which may
momentarily change the display.
Average speed (MPH or km/h)
The average speed mode shows the average
vehicle speed since last reset. Resetting is done
by pressing the change button for more than
approximately 1 second. The display is updated
every 30 seconds. The first 30 seconds after a
reset, the display shows (----).
Average fuel consumption (Mpg or
l/100km)
The average fuel consumption mode shows the
average fuel consumption since the last reset.
Resetting is done by pressing the change button
for more than approximately 1 second. The display
is updated every 30 seconds. At about the
first 1/3 miles (500 m) after a reset, the display
shows (----).

Journey time
The journey time mode shows the time since the
last reset. The displayed time can be reset by
pressing the change button for more than approximately
1 second.
Trip computer reset
Pushing the change button for more than 3 seconds
will reset all modes except Trip A and distance
to empty (dte).
