    The time has come to sell my Xterra; a 2004 XE 4x4 in Thermal Red.

    I am the second owner - I bought it when it was ~14 months old with less than 15K on the odometer. It’s at ~172K miles and still running as strong as ever – it has been my daily driver and weekend warrior for over 13 years. I was active in the Xterra community for quite some time, took it many memorable trips, including a NXM(#1) and a WENT(#3), but the past couple years have primarily been road travel and regular maintenance. I will list all of the pros and cons below.

    I am selling it as-is; no plans to part it out. Those in the community who have seen it can vouch that it has been used, but never abused. It is clean inside, the seats have been covered with seat covers since I bought it, and it does not stink. It is very capable offroad but it has been my daily driver and I have kept it relatively clean over the years (sans adventure times). The only thing that is broken the rear seat cupholder (RIP, flimsy little guy).

    Asking $4,100.
    Reasoning: It runs strong, no mechanical issues, clean inside, lots of extras, tons of armor, a 10K lb winch, etc. See the list below for details.
