After looking at early 2000s 4Runners, Cherokees, Monteros, Explorers, etc., Xterra is my #1. They seem to be currently undervalued when compared to the competition. My question is what should I look out for? I'm new to Nissan and I've done a few hours of searching and can't quite find what I'm looking for.
I'm looking at a 2002, 2003, 2004 XTerra for around $9k. It will be the primary vehicle for my wife and myself, used for trips to Denver (3 hours west) and into the Rockies.
- SE vs XE - Is there any practical reason to seek out the SE other than coloring?
- We would prefer the 5spd, but is the 4spd auto trans solid?
- What do you get with the factory tow package?
- Lockers, Off Road package? What should I look for?
