Gas mileage like a V8
"I had concerns when I saw the transmission reviews after the purchase so I did a trans service right away.., no issues. Changing the radiator as a precaution and then leaving it up to the car Gods. Car rides well enough for a truck and is really solid. Gas mileage estimates are very optimistic, expect 17 on the hwy. Probably not a good for an everyday driver but not a terrible value for the money. "

"This is a manual transmission. We use it as a 4-down tow behind our RV...Love it. Easy to drive, good visibility, plenty of room for us."

For our use it does well. We need off-road capability combined with in-town ease of use.

2010 Nissan Xterra Off-Road w Manual Transmission
"I absolutely love this vehicle! The gas mileage is a big change from my old Honda Pilot, however I think it's totally worth it! The handling and steering radius is much better in regards to off road capabilities. The interior is very standard though. The only thing I would consider any kind of "upgrade" is the steering wheel radio controls and power windows. The seats fold completely flat, but you do have wheel wells to contend with as far as cargo room. Since I have the manual transmission, I also will not have to deal with a common transmission issue in this year with the automatics. Overall I'm thrilled with this vehicle and it's my new hobby. My only real complaint is that there is no latch on the gas door, so I would highly suggest buying a locking gas cap. "

Seats have actual lumbar support, although it is non-adjustable. Interior is fairly basic, no upgrades. I'm fine with this, but someone coming from a loaded interior would probably find it lacking.
Exterior

Since mine is the off road model, it comes with off road lights in the lower front bumper as well as the ones mounted up top. It also comes with a factory skid plate, which is thin but better than nothing. Roof rack also comes with the package! Only complaint is there is not a latch on the gas door, so I bought a locking gas cap.

The engine in this is fairly small, but since I have a manual I do have more control in how it drives. The engine is only a 4.0 L in a 6 cyl engine, however it has quite a bit of torque in first gear, which helps with the off roading capabilities. It also has a clutch start button which I doubt I'll ever be brave enough off roading to need, but it's nice to have it just in case.

You could fit 2 car seats in the back, but there is no third row, so I would suggest the pathfinder if you need more room. Over all it's easy and durable inside so even having the dog in the back isn't going to effect anything one way or another.
Cost

3.0

I wouldn't say this gets very great gas mileage, but you don't usually buy a SUV when that's the goal. I would say that this is average cost for this size and type of vehicle. Maybe cost effective in the sense that they are good vehicles if treated right, there's Xterras driving around that have 300k miles on them.
