Wanted the best of both worlds - hauling / towing power, decent fuel economy & off-road ability. Looked at the Toyota FJ which is not a vehicle for a family. Went back to Edmunds and saw the xterra FJ comparison. Bought the X manual 6 spd. It drives very well, it's comfortable, great visibility & a fun ride. Interior is more than sufficient for our needs. Not sure what the "cheap plastic" complaint means. I can't see anything wrong with the vehicle - I really like everything about it.
All this truck under $20K with incentives is a great deal! Cruise, keyless entry on a bare bones model. This is a lot of truck!
Have roof crossbars included on the X package? I'll think about the improvements, but for now, it's looking hard to find any.
