I have an 08 Xterra with 35k on it, I started hearing a vibration noise coming from the front of the vehicle mainly when accelarating or changing gear.
What I found to be the problem with mine was the exhaust rattling. There are several points where there is an exhaust shielld above the exhaust pipe and the pipe is attached to the shield with a steel band. The In two of these places the steel bands had rusted away causing the exhaust pipe to rattle against the upper shield.
I just bought a couple of hose clamps from the hardware store and tightened swapped them for the rusted steel bands. I hope this is the same problem some of you are having, because it is a quick fix.

Exactly the same problem with my 08 Xterra (45k) - found a broken steel band (rust) this morning. I guess the pipe rattles against the metal shield (pretty noisy)
Do you know - do I need to put some damp material between the shield and the pipe before I tighten the pipe with the hose clamp? Anyone else did this? Thanks -
