Pros: getting rid of it
Cons: all of itI leased this xterra to pull my boat - and it was the worst idea I have ever had. I will never buy another Nissan ever! From the shady sales tactics, the 'take every drop of blood' lease contract, the shoddy & expensive servicing, the astronomically poor gas mileage (11mpg if that), to the cheap metal and finish. This truck offers absolutely no comfort or peace of mind. I was constantly staring at the gas gauge every minute as $30 flew out of my wallet almost daily. It was insane. I took the truck back to nissan a week after I leased it hoping to trade for a different vehicle - needless to say they wouldn't do it. I posted it on leasetrade.. still no luck. I have now grinned and bared it for 3 years.. waiting for the day to turn it in. NOW they want $500 just to return it, PLUS $$$ for normal wear & tear!! Before this I leased an Audi.. they made me feel like a king. Free service for 3 years, a loaner car any time it was needed.. I was in 7th heaven. I guess I must have done someone wrong to be throw directly into Nissan HELL this time. word to the wise... don't do it. There is NOTHING sporty about this suv. no sunroof, no nothing.. just a big stinky gas gussling tin can.
