It looks like it's time for a newer vehicle as my trusty old Pathfinder is getting on in years and she's had her share of dances.
Taking into consideration my actual vehicle needs, the things I do for fun that require a specific type of vehicle, and personal tastes; I've pretty well decided that the Nissan Xterra suits my requirements the best.
Xterra specific criteria - Manual transmission (very important haha) 4X4 (M/T tires are a definite bonus but not much of a deal maker), kayak-carrying capeability, I'm not 16, Philipino, nor a chick so no solar yellow or bright red paint, and I don't want a supercharged model (If I end up buying something that old)
I'm looking for personal experiences with these things and problem areas I should watch out for with my hunt.
Specifically looking at no older than 2003 but my budget is pretty well capping me at 2007
