We love our new Xterra. We have a Ford Escape and were going to get another one but after one drive in the Xterra we couldn't go back. I still grin when I have to load cargo into the massive trunk or crawl over rocks effortlessly. The huge windows all around offer a wonderful view and safer lane-changing. I spend the week commuting and this bulky SUV is surprisingly comfortable. On the weekends, it dominates off-road and I've never doubted if it could take me where I want to go. This is a great all-around vehicle for me and my growing family.
360 degree views, rubber lined cargo space for easy clean-up, tons of neat manly gadgets like rooftop storage, hidden storage in the trunk and impressive tow-rating.
A sunroof would make things sportier. The interior is a bit bland and easy to scratch. Also, no power seats in anything but the SE is tough for multiple drivers of different heights. Otherwise, impressed every day by my Xterra.
