Don't let me get an Xterra!!

Hi all,

I need some help...

I've had my heart set on buying a Wrangler Unlimited S now for at least the past 2 years, but have waited for my current lease to expire...now that it has, I'm having some kind of sick case of buyer's remorse...let me s'plain...

I do mostly city driving, but will be doing occasional easy to moderate recreational offroading...and some possible 4wheeling up a muddy driveway in the wintertime.

I test drove the Xterra, and it was nice...drove well, plenty of power, etc.
It comes in about 4-5 Gs cheaper with a few more creature comforts...and if I just go with the S (no bilstein shocks, no roof mounted offroad lights) its more like 6 grand less...not to mention, I feel going with a 2010 or 2011 could be an option b/c it hasn't changed at all, where as with the Jeep, I would definitely want the power and mpg the 2012 provides.

Basically, I'm trying to avoid working simply to pay for my vehicle, but at the same time, I've always been a car guy who cares about what he drives...and I'll probably be hanging onto this thing for a while...

I think I just need a couple slaps in the mouth and then, a few months from now when I see you on the trail, you can break my balls for almost making a big mistake...and I'll buy you a beer for setting me straight!

Hey, I hear ya on the tops and doors...a buddy of mine who I used to ride motorcycles with (who cannot ride anymore) got one and likens driving with the doors off to the days he used to ride.

I'm just not able to get too excited about that right now because I currently live in an apt. and cannot easily store them...which is temporary, but it is what it is.

And, for the record...I've not joined any Xtrerra forums... ;-)

ehhh I enjoy the wrangler. Its a uniquely american vehicle, and its an eye-catcher. I can't tell the difference between xterra and a lot of other vehicles, for example.

If the nostalgia, fun, and just plain coolness factors are not enough reason to buy the Wrangler, then I guess you might consider the manufacturing jobs created or not for you fellow Americans. In which case, they are close- but not if you buy a manual...

Nissan Xterra
Engine: U.S.
Transmission: Japan
U.S.-Canadian content: 55%

Jeep Wrangler
Engine: U.S.
Transmission: Brazil (manual)
U.S. (automatic)
U.S.-Canadian content*: 56%

I am about 10 minutes away from the Wrangler's engine plant here in MI and 30 minutes away from the assembly plant in Toledo, OH so, in addition to Wranglers being the most well-round vehicle suited to me, I am all good with my neighbors having a means to feed their families. JEEP!!!

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the welcomes and the slaps...I'm leaving now to go order a Sahara...can't seem to find one with the tow hitch and without leather.

I don't think I'm gonna have the balls to go red or crush...but I think black will do just fine...I'll throw some skulls on it or something...

Welcome. Drive down the road or off road and see how many Jeeps you see, and how many Jeeps stand out. Now look for any Xteras. Enough said.
