I'm a long time owner of a 2002 Xterra. I bought it brand new and as of February it will turn 11 years old. Hard to believe it has been that long. My X is a fairly rare breed, it is a 02 SE with Gold Rush paint and a manual tranny, imho the best looking X ever made ;-). It has about 112k on the odometer. Runs great and will probably do another 100k without breaking a sweat.
