    if i was to get a mid-size SUV i would be checking into a GMC Envoy... one of my co-workers has one, i've driven it before and it's really nice and has a good amount of power also!

    those envoys are a little to much. i think she is looking to spend under 40kCAN. how about the pathfinder chinook edition? i like the styling better on the Xterra but the pathfinder has much more HP and torque

    although I really like the look of the Xterra, I have heard nothing but bad bad bad about it.. supposedly handles like crap, can't accelerate very well even with the S/C'd engine.. etc... I'd stay away from it for now..

    well its really not going to be used for hard core off-roading if any. i know they didn't make it for that, but that still sucks that they would throw that in

    The part I dont like is how do you use the tranny to brake going down a long ass hill? Like coming down from a ski hill if you just use the brakes you will fry them for sure...
