While on business in Fort Lauderdale, the rental company gave me a 2010 Xterra because they we're out of Town Cars. I LOVE driving it. I have a Mercury Mountaineer back home and am considering trading it for an Xterra. Its high up (which helps in Miami traffic) and sporty and very comfortable. I would recommend it to any executive traveling. Definitely not your typical "soccer mom car".
the switch on the fly 4WD system helped while trudging through the Florida Everglades.
through all the options in the the Pathfinder/Armada has. would make an excellent economical alternative without sacrifice.
