Replaced our 2 year old Sante Fe piece of #$%@! Get a lot of car for your money. Had to get an all decked out Xterra since that is all the dealership could find for us in our region and still only paid $26500. Lots of power, good turning radius, great brakes, the ride is not as bad as I thought it would be and it is GREAT IN THE SNOW. I have 2 kids, 2 big dogs and this suv was made for families like mine. So many useful features in this suv. We even used the roof bin for my daughter's nasty soccer cleats after her practice. Gas mileage was on par with the Santa Fe it replaced, which is surprising since the Xterra has 60 more horsepower. 3 words for you "JUST BUY IT" you wont regret it.
power, brakes, the option cargo organizer, all the little storage spots, stereo, 2 glove boxes, all the internal hooks to hold cargo down, cool factor....
optional navigation system would be nice, outside temperature gauge in mirror along with the compass, heated mirrors, side air bags standard. dealer installed brush guard that doesn't need to have the bumper to have 2 holes drilled into it. little more leg room in back.
