I had asked in an earlier thread (several weeks ago) how do you tell which model (X, S, OR, SE) XTerra you have. If I can remember right, everyone was saying things like, look at the wheels, or look to see if you have this or that on your vehicle. There was no definitive answer given by anyone. UNTIL NOW !!! (Someone can let me know if this is posted somewhere else but I havnt seen it, so forgive me if I think I have an answer to something no one was able to answer with authority).

(inside your door jamb, on the sticker, look down till you see MODEL, you'll see a 10 digit alpha code (Some years have an extra N25 or N48 = XTerra). That code will tell you what model you have. Real handy if your buying a used XTerra and their selling it as an "S" when its actually an "X".

Hope this information will help people when out buying an XTerra somewhere other than a new one at a dealer (even they FU used XTerras) and they want to know what they're really buying. People change wheels, add options, etc. and what your looking at may not be what your getting.

To the op, u might want to change the thread title to "how-to tell which x model you have". Otherwise this is going to turn into a 300 page list of everyone listing their x models, which I'm thinking wasn't the point of the thread.

I went and checked because I was curious.
I have a 2010 and it actually says the trim on it.
It has the
model, color (k12), and trim (x).

yet, i checked my sisters and hers doesn't say what trim it is, and hers is an 08. So maybe they added in the trim information with the newer ones (09+)?
Just a heads up.

Just a heads up back at you, they all say trim "X" even if it is an S or an SE, and the OR models say trim "T".

Reason for my never ending search for this information is my knowledge being a Corvette man and 99.99% of Corvette owners know all these little details. I wish I had known this prior to buying the XTerra I have now as it was sold by a dealer as an "S" model but after finding this information it turns out to really be an "X" model. I'm sure I paid a couple hundred dollars more because of their blue book appraisal at an "S" level rather than a "X" level. I'm still totally satisified with my XTerra and am glad I bought it. I just wished I had this info first and saved a couple hundred in the process. Hope it help someone else............

If anyone has a 2008 and 2011 factory service manual this information is in the beginning under vehicle information and I'm sure everyone would appreciate you provide those two model years to this thread.....:headbang:
