Xterra S 4x2 with autmatic. This truck is the most fun to drive out of any I have ever driven. The throttle response is excellent. The engine outperforms any SUV I've driven. It's not a bad gas guzzler, although it burns more fuel than a Ford Escape or Jeep Liberty. it pays off from the Fords and the Jeeps when it comes to reliability. If you buy any truck like one of those, it'll be in the shop more, and you'll pay for it there. Besides, the Xterra is much more versatile for any type of driving than those are. the fold flat seats have been perfect for me. This SUV is exactly what I need. It's got all the basics, organized so that its design is effective for a daily driver.
All the places to store things that don't stick out. The multiple 12V adapters. Wipe clean cargo area (including fold down seats).
The interior plastic is prone to minor scratches if you're not careful, but it's not a huge problem.
