2001 Isuzu VehiCROSS SUV 4WD 2dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased my VX in early 2002 and have been in love ever since. It handles more like a sports car than an SUV. In the snow it is a beast, never got stuck one time. Drove it on the beach in NC and all I got was turning heads. Put simply, it is like owning an exotic car. Only 5000 were ever produced, so you almost NEVER see another one, wherever you go, not like so many other mass production vehicles (1 every 3 blocks!). The stiff ride allows you to feel the road, and corner without yaw. Good luck getting a used one, because I will probably NEVER sell mine. :) Simply the best experience I have ever had with a vehicle.
Favorite feature is the styling of the car. Heads still turning in 2007. Nowhere will you get the feeling of driving an exotic car for the cost of a VehiCross. When she is shiny clean, it's like wearing a new tuxedo!
Install the rear view camera, extend the passenger seat and throw an after market muffler/intake on it. I put chrome mirror covers and windflectors also. This is just one blast of a car to own.
