I love my X! I've always driven SUV's and love them. My last SUV was a Trailblazer, which was ok but it was an automatic. I love the 6 speed X. It drives like a truck (I'm told it's a full frame not a sub frame which i'm sure makes it drive a little more like a truck), but it hugs the curves. It drives real tight, it's firm. I didn't like all the play in the steering that the trailblazer had. All I can say is test drive one and you'll fall in love. I never thought I'd drive anything other than General Motors, but purchasing the XTerra X was the best move i've made so far. Give it a try....see what you think.
You're up high. And it's a Manual transmission. It's tough to come by a SUV of that size in a manual transmission.
Day time running lamps and automatic headlights. But over all.....A great buy for the money. I LOVE MY XTERRA X!
