Nissan Xterra 2004 Or Lexus Rx 300 - Please Help Me Decide by Dillusionist(m): 5:22pm On Aug 08, 2020
Without wasting much time, I intend getting any of these cars for my old man to remain mobile.

The terrain he lives is quite bad, so I want to know which of them would be a good choice.

If none, can you recommend any good SUV between 1.5 million to 2 million budget.

Thanks.

Please lalasticlala, help me abeg.

No contest, Lexus all the way.

Run far from the Nissan Xterra or any Nissan product for that matter (Nissan needs premium fuel but naija fuel is the worst you can think of as no standard!).

we have a Nissan xterra that has been going strong since the past 8 years now. never visited a mechanic since the past 2 years.
the only thing is that the fuel consumption is high, but the car has served and is still serving.

Xterra is by far more rugged that rx 300. Nissan xterra is an all time off roader and has no basis for comparison with rx 300. Rx 300 is a luxury car.

From your requirement, I can see the terrain where your father stays is very bad, then go for the 2004 xterra. Don't compare Xterra with RX when you're talking of off-road. RX is not meant for that, it's just an elevated saloon car, xterra is a true offroader. The parts and mechanics are available.

A 4runner, 2000-2002, Pathfinder 2000-2004, infinity QX4 could be in same price range but are out of fashion now. If you can see a way of increasing budget, get 2003 4runner for him too.

Since you are buying for an old man who needs comfort, a Honda pilot of 2004 to 2006 can be purchased at that price and is very good too. Get foreign used.

Is Honda not notorious for having faults with the leg breaking.

I mean the front tire side.

What do you think?

in addition, Pilots are better offroaders than the Lexus Rx. The Vtm-4 affords the pilot the desired 'low range' found in standard 4wds.

Op the 2007 Ford Escape suits your budget.
Considering the terrain he lives in the escape will perform well.. Parts are affordable too, compared to the Lexus.
N1.7m will get you a good one.

That's exactly what it is. The first gen RX was based on the ES300 and Camry.

Very true, that helps it to send torque to the correct wheels in cases of slippage, so that the car doesn't get stuck. I am quite familiar with the VTM-4 system on an Acura MDX which shares the same platform with the Pilot.
