Still happy 4 years later

I bought my XT used in 05. Had 24K on it at the time, and I've since added another 70K. It has been very dependable, and I've only has to deal with general maintenance issues so far. I also find it funny that people are complaining about the fuel mileage. What did you expect? It's a big box sitting on a truck chassis. If you're worried about fuel economy, buy a sedan. I've actually found it to get decent mileage for what it is. There's a ton of space, it tows well, and looks good.
dependability, looks, storage capacity
The trim is pretty cheap, which is to be expected somewhat, however I'd wish it was a bit more durable. All the grey rubberized trim has faded a good bit. Also the seats are not comfortable, esp over long distances.
