In any event I managed to take 19 years off my real age by driving a 2001 Nissan Xterra.
The Xterra "casts a rugged strong look, like a weathered face that has snowboarded down many mountains." The "age" of someone driving an Xterra? 28. Perhaps it's really 20, but that whole "snowboarded down many mountains" thing may have "weathered" the face a bit too much. In any event for a week or so, I went from 47 to 28.
However, after driving the Xterra to Wyoming and back, it became very obvious to me that I was not 28, and I didn't have the body of a 28 year old, and I didn't like bouncing down the road like a ping pong ball. Sorry, it may be rugged and tough and all that, but it sure isn't comfortable on 47 year old bones. Not to mention I like my cars to actually have power. When I push on the accelerator, it should accelerate. The Xterra just made a lot of noise to give you the impression you were actually moving. Maybe that's their way of making it "fuel efficient."
So, I traded the Xterra in and gained six years back. I bought a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited.
