Hello all. My name is Leon and this is the story of how I became an Xterra owner. My GF always talked about how she wanted an old Land Rover or Jeep or older off road style vehicle. I'm not a Jeep guy!!! So about a week ago we saw an Xterra in a parking and she says...."I've always like the Xterra's", to which I replied, "I know where there is one that has been sitting in someone's driveway for months and hasn't moved. I drive by it everyday on my way to work." The next day I stopped by the house on my way home, after a short conversation and $400, I now own a 2004 Xterra. Pictures are as it sat when I bought it. The good... 1. It's not a Jeep 3. Minimal rust. And for upstate NY that's a huge plus!! 4. The GF is excited about this project and even offered to put money into the fix it "budget". The bad... 1. Doesn't run. Don't know why yet. Guy said "It turns over but won't start. No idea why and didn't want to mess with it." 2. Interior is rough in spots. Someone spilled a bunch of paint in front passenger seat, shift knob is all apart and rear cargo mat is stained badly and stereo area is all apart. I have yet to turn the engine over in this thing. All I did was pull onto a trailer and unload it in my driveway. I had another "project" in the garage that I am going to move out and get the X in there before I start messing with it.
