I found myself on Turo after recently benefiting from the service on a trip to Austin and, by some act of divine intervention, winning a raffle prize at a work holiday party for a brand new car . Go figure, right?
In the meantime while using the new car, the goal is to keep the Xterra and rent it out - I bought it at the end of the summer in 2014 and it's been a joy to own. With the ability to power through inclement weather, effectively bring home items from Lowes or Target with passengers, move my girlfriend in, lug our two dogs or kayaks around, the Xterra is the most practical car you can drum up.
It would be ideal of visitors to the city with lots of luggage in need of a spacious ride to and from attractions, anyone looking for a cost effective way to move items from one apartment to another, or car-less city dwellers looking to take Fido to nearby Wissahickon or Ridley park for some hiking.
The car is not all-wheel drive, rather it is rear wheel with the option for 4-wheel drive in snowy or slippery conditions.
Car needs to remain in rear-wheel drive (2WD) for normal usage. Only switch to 4WD High when snow conditions are present. Driving 4WD High or 4WD Low for normal usage is not good for the gas mileage or the front axle.
Pets are more than welcome but please vacuum or wipe down the car afterwards.
Often times same-day weekday reservations are more of a challenge to accept and turnover the keys to a renter if I have left to work for the day. We have a lockbox and if given enough notice, can arrange for a seamless pick-up and drop-off. I will almost always accept reservations for the following day and beyond.
Does the 2008 Xterra have an auxiliary?
Unfortunately not. An FM transmitter can be used.

First time using Turo, Brett made it an easy and seamless process. Car behaved fantastically the whole trip
Brett made the experience go nice and smooth and was very flexible with any request I had. So easy. The car was exactly as described and worked perfectly. I would highly recommend and use again anytime. A+
Brett was beyond fantastic for my short trip. Car was clean and worked well - no issues whatsoever. Brett communicated very clearly & timely which made the whole trip a breeze. Would absolutely rent from Brett again 10/10.
Even though there was a mechanical issue during my trip, Brett was awesome with keeping in contact and making sure the remainder of my trip went smoothly. Pickup and drop off was quick and easy. I'll definitely rent from Brett again, hopefully without any incidents next time
Brett's Xterra was great! Was extremely convenient and close by, the car itself was great too! There was quite an awesome selection of throwback cd's, since I had forgotten to bring music it made my travels much more enjoyable. Brett was great with communicating for the pick up and drop off situation. Would definitely rent again!
Brett is very helpful, the car is very clean. Is an economic car, didn't spent so much gas in my trip to Virginia. I really enjoy driving the Xterra. For sure next time I need to rent a car will not have to look for one.
Brett was very easy to work with. The Xterra is clean, handles well and gets reasonably good gas mileage for its size. I needed to pick up some furniture and the rear seats folded down to create more than enough room for my purchases. Overall, a 5 star trip and I would absolutely recommend using Brett's Xterra.
Bret and his Nissan were fantastic! This was our first experience with Turo, and it was truly terrific. Bret answered all our questions before even booking his car; he was prompt, friendly, and informative. He made pick-up and drop-off a breeze, and his car was lovely - just perfect for a long weekend trip with a baby and two dogs. It is very roomy, comfortable, and drove nicely. Thank you, Bret!
I had a great trip in Brett's Xterra! It was the perfect size car to start moving out in, was fun to drive (had the windows down all weekend), and was comfortable. Brett responded quickly to messages and was flexible and accommodating. Would definitely rent from Brett again!
This is my second time renting from Brett and he and his car are awesome. Pickup and drop-off were both easy. I extend my trip by a full day and there were no issues. Brett responded to my request instantly.
Brett and his Xterra are the best. The car was impeccably clean and was a a breeze to drive. When the rode changed from smooth to rough terrain the Xterra went to 4 wheel drive with no issues. Brett was very accommodating with the time and he was understanding of my slight fear of parking his car on to his tiny street. I will definitely rent from Brett again.
