Payback, looking to trade my 911

As some of you may remember, I recently bought a tent trailer. My wife has a mini van but it has a lot of miles on it and we don't really want to pull the camper with it. She has been wanting another vehicle for awhile but we don't want to finance a new vehicle so I am going to sell my 911 or trade it for what she wants. My wife has mentioned in the past that she would like a Nissan Xterra. Does anyone here have a 2003 or newer Xterra that they would consider trading for my 911? When we were first married, she sold a car that she loved so I could buy a new Ducati. I want to pay her back for the sacrifice she made at that time. Though I love my 911, I want something that will be more
useful to the family. Our kids are 5,7,& 8 years old and we want to spend time camping, hiking, and
exploring while they are still young. I am going to put my car in the for sale section but wanted to post here to see if anyone was interested. She wants a 4x4 with an auto transmission. I will send pics and info to interested parties. Thanks

Has she ever driven an Xterra? My daughter wanted one (I think she thought they were cool or cute or something) so I went to look at them. The one I drove was a 6 cyl with a manual trans, and it was horrible. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

With the kids age ranges you mentioned I doubt an Xterra would have the room you need to be honest. I had one for a while and the rear seating just isn't great for more than normal sized people. 3 children are going to be all over each other and I'd hate to be the one in the middle.

If I still had mine - I probably do the trade...

Not a 4 wd, but I'll cut you a good deal on a 2004 Toyota Highlander V6 3.3 liter engine, same as the Lexus RX330, with 80K on the clock, factory towing package with larger trannie cooler, heavier suspension, etc. Its in pretty decent shape. Cloth seats which are like new (almost) , sun roof, roof rack, JBL sound, cruise, tint, extremely clean inside. Its a dark grey color. It will pull my 2,000 plus lbs trailer to Shaver Lake, CA (elev. 5,500 ft) no problem. Oil changed every 5K. Seats 7

I have both a 78 911 SC and an Xterra, and I paid about the same for both used at similar mileages (~$11k @ 90k miles). For an Xterra, try to get a 2005 or earlier. The newer 4.0L V6 engines gives you 265 hp, much better than the 170 hp 3.3L V6 in the earlier models, and same gas mileage (18-20 mpg). I owned and liked both, but the 2005 was a big improvement.

Hugh R, Thank you for the offer but we want 4wd and she wants an Xterra. Aurel, thank you for the advice on the model year. We found a nice 05 for sale locally that we are interested in looking at but need to sell the 911 first.

Another vote for the 2005 and newer models, I"ve owned a 2000, 2005, and now a 2008 Pathfinder (same truck doors forward) and they have been great, but the 2nd generation is a huge improvement in both power and ride.

The 4.0 does really well towing our camper in the Mountains.

Today was a sad day for me as I sold the 911. I am going to miss it. It's back in Phoenix which is where I bought it from 3 years ago. I am going to continue being a member here at Pelican. I really enjoy the forum and you guys are a pretty good group of people. Thanks

We bought a 2003 Xterra over the weekend. It's a supercharged SE 4x4. We looked at a few here in Tucson but didn't see anything we liked so we drove 4 hours to look at this one. It has 78000 miles and came with all the maintenance records. It's like new inside and out and the tires are only 2 months old. We made the day into a mini adventure with a picnic stop along the way. The kids had a blast. Now we are ready for our first camping adventure. I'm still sad to have sold the 911 but the kids are going to have a lot of fun with the new family toy!

Great job. You'll be a lot happier knowing the kids are happier. You can always get another 911 later, but you can't get the kids younger, later. Have fun.
