Who doesn’t remember the Xterra commercial before it came out? Lenny Kravitz, lots of mud, a first aid kit in the back wheel well. It made you want to buy an SUV just so that you could go drive around in the wilderness and try to get lost. Fast forward to today, we are nearing the end of the year of the sheep (seriously). It’s time to escape from the flock and check out the last 2015 Nissan Xterra. While the 2015 Nissan Xterra reviews are coming to an end, let’s have a little encore with some top-flight thoughts from the biggest stars in the automotive industry:
“The 2015 Nissan Xterra is one of the last truly capable off-road SUVs.”
Kelley Blue Book
“The 2015 Nissan Xterra makes a good alternative to the Jeep Wrangler, offering just as much off-road capability as the Jeep, but with the fixed roof and doors that make living in the city or suburbs more tolerable.”
“With its only real competition being the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Toyota FJ, the Xterra continues to sell well, catering to those who need their SUV to serve as both a daily driver and a weekend warrior.”
Once you’re all set with one of the top-ranking 4×4 vehicles of all time, you’ll be eligible to take your off-road game to the next level. If you’re not already, consider joining the Kentucky Krawlers, a Kentucky based four-wheeling club.
According to Rock Addict on the forum:
“Try to have your rig in operational order with no disrepair that will certainly break and slow the entire group on the trail. Or at least be good/fast at repairing it.”
The forum also recommends that new members read the following rules before joining:
1. Tow hooks, or a tow point available (front and rear).
2. Minimum of liability insurance on your vehicle.
3. No alcohol at any club ride (it is allowed at functions).
4. Seatbelts for all passengers.
5. No chains for tow straps. No metal hooks on ends of straps.
6. Full-size or close size spare tire.
Strongly Recommended Vehicle Requirements
1. Fire extinguisher
2. CB radio
3. First aid kit
Don’t quite meet all the requirements to take your Xterra off-roading? The Kentucky Krawlers don’t mind, and they’ve got a few tidbits of helpful advice, too:
“You will not be turned away for your first time with us if you do not have all of the above required list. But, understand that it makes the ride more enjoyable for everyone when you try to follow the guidelines. If you don’t have a tow point on either end of your vehicle, then we may not take you to the more difficult places. Once again, everything refers back to the safety issue for everyone.”
“Also, bring whatever makes your day more comfortable. If we are riding all day then bring a lunch, water, bug spray, tylenol, toilet paper, etc. Whatever you need to make your ride with us as enjoyable and safe as possible.”
For all of your off-road needs, consider Glenn Nissan, the #1 Xterra dealership in Kentucky. There is no substitute for traditional wisdom and expertise when it comes to buying an SUV at your Lexington Nissan dealership. You might be a risk taker, but don’t leave your Xterra dealer up to chance; make sure that it’s from Glenn Nissan.
