Decided on the Xterra after looking at Honda CR-V, Acura RDX, Toyota Highlander, etc. The Xterra may seem not fancy enough for some folks, but seriously it's got everything you need. I've been extremely pleased with this Xterra, it's such a great all round vehicle, easy to drive and not a ginormous vehicle. It's straightforward, drives great and has not given me one moment's trouble in 5 months of daily driving.
Exterior design, radio controls on steering wheel and very comfortable seats. Satellite Radio is awesome too.
Well, since I drive in the city only, I will say I'd like to have better gas mileage!
