Hey all I just bought my wife a 2007 Nissan Xterra S I got it off the lot it's equipped with 4x4, auto trans, Protection pkg, side steps and towing. And I got the dealer to add Door moldings at no cost. I traded in our 2000 Ford Expedition and walked out the door with the Xterra paying 26.5K. I think I fared all right. I owed 11k on the Expy and they offered me 8.5k for it. Plus I had to have it delivered to the island I live on from the mainland. I bought it primarilly because I really could not find anyone saying anything bad about it. Sure the gas mileage could be a bit better but when you come from a rig that's averaging 12mpg's this is quite the upgrade. I'm looking forward to modding it mildly: cat back, drop in filter etc. Is there any other free- cheap mods I should do? This is my wifes rig but it will be our primary family vehicle so mods need to be subtle. By the way I was looking to buy one with the side curtain air bags but was not upset when I couldn't get it after I found out that the Xterra recieved 5 stars on the front and rear side impact rating without airbags! Good job Nissan.

great board I look forward to contributing.

Welcome aboard! Please also become familiar on how to post pictures as I am a huge fan of the Alaskan wilderness. :faroah:

It is time to put that 4x4 into good use. Congrats on the purchase. :cheers:
