    Well I am up for a new vehicle, just took a new job with a pay cut (good for long term career goals). So I'm not looking to spend to much. There is a 07 4x4 xterra with 154000 miles on it for $6900, I'll get around 500 for my current vehicle on a trade in, if I can talk them down to around 5500 I may go for it. I know about the tranny cooler issues and if that hasn't been done on this rig yet I will do the bypass asap. Any experience with higher mileage xterras? From the carfax the previous owners seem to have taken it to a Nissan dealership for nearly everything.

    My wife's got an '09. The air sensor valve stems in the tires are junk, seams like she ends up with a flat tire every few months because they start leaking. Other than that, no major issues.

    Cool, been looking at them for a while and the conclusion seems to be if you can get over the gas milage and take care of them they will run forever. Going to look at a 2011 with just over a 100k today.
