They are good machines. I'm 20 and it's also my first vehicle just had my anniversary with her a few days ago and made 10k miles on her so far making 120k miles. Let m tell you one big important thing about these xterras. If you ever have horrible misfires and wants to stall, look no further than the distributor. They are not very reliable. they tend to go at 100k miles or more. Also if you want to get a new distributor you need to cross refference it's cast number to the new one. I had that problem and it was my only issue with her. Have fun with her.
