2006 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
The Nissan Xterra is clearly the best buy in the mid-size SUV segment. You can get out the door with a fully loaded vehicle for under $28k and feel really good about it. Performance from the 265hp V-6 leaves nothing to be desired, and has the sporty handling of an extrememly well built truck. Don't believe the EPA fuel economy figures though, 21 mpg is difficult to acheieve unless driving 55 mph . . . and I don't.
