I've owned a number of SUV's over the years (4-runner, explorer, cherokee) and I'm quite pleased with the new Xterra - the 265hp V6 provides more than enough power. It's quite roomy inside for a 6' 7" guy like myself. The styling is simple and functional, but still looks quite good.
The Capability to play MP3 CD's in the stock stereo would be nice
