Oh how nice, a 'Speical' thread for quitters.   
After just a quarter million miles, you want to through in the towel.
"I'm tired of lousy mileage, stupid codes, faulty chain tensioners and strawberry milkshakes :'("
So what, you'd rather spend your weekends burning expensive fossil fuel, driving overland to God knows where.
When you could be enjoying your rig right at home, up on jacks, in the comfort of your own garage.  No worries about where to find gas, beer or a place to poo.
Your new Toyotas will be like a second marrage, all fun and games at first, but soon she too will age and show her flaws.  One day you will find yourself sitting along some empty road with your head in your hands, wondering, why did I ever leave my X.

This is f**king awesome.  ;D ;D

I don't know Randy, resale value on my 230,000 mile 2003 Tacoma was a little higher than for my 2005 Xterra with about the same mileage.

$8400 compared to $3250...so while I agree that second marriages aren't all fun & games, I know I "learned" a lot from both of my X's, and during this chapter I have a lot more fossil fuel burnin' funds for those head out of hands weekends.  ;)

Wow!  That $5150 difference more than makes up for the $10-15k higher initial cost for for the Toyota over the Nissan.   ::)

Haha, I suppose you're right.

I did neglect to mention the over $10K in maintenance costs we incurred during the six years of Nissan ownership...so I still maintain the fact that we would have never met had it not been for my Xterra's voracious appetite for catalytic converters, IPDM relays, cam timing sensors, ABS sensors, MAF sensors, ECU's, P0240 codes, strawberry milkshakes, etc. (see Randy's list above)...  ::)

Anyone who stoops, to quoting the Duffman, has already lost the argument :D

I just saw a great Tacoma website with a thread about Taco owners who switched to an Xterra.

I just spotted this tonight.  Funny thing, I just test drove a Honda Pilot and Honda Passport tonight too.  I'm sort of thinking of trading in the Xterra.  I don't know if I can actually bring myself to do it though.  The Pilot and Passport are a long way from an Xterra, but they do drive nicely I have to say.  And I hardly ever get very far off the pavement these days.

At least you spelled sphincter correctly.  :D

We could never have this much fun if we were...well...Chevy owners who switched to Fords.  :D
