for me it is the S-mode sequential shift on the automatic transmission - i really like being able to manually shift w/o a clutch when i want to. it really utilizes the engines power better when a boost of speed is needed or wanted :D

it is also great for hill / mountain driving as it will help to use the engine to keep the vehicle in control on steep grades [up or down] by being in the proper gear...

MMMM....where do I start! (I got mine in May 07, I have 14,500 miles on it as of today) As some one who traded an Infiniti M for the 2 Gen (08) xB, there are many things that were (are) very appealing about it's body style, size and power. Particularly the ease with which I can make it distincively (personal) mine. When I'm traveling, I can pull into a rest area and lye down in the back very comfortably.

I can carry a get deal more (than the M could) when needed. The Mods are relatively inexpensive, there are many choices which makes it uniquely mine, though I have noticed that several in town are adding some of the same features that I have.

I also own a Honda Element, I think the xB is more responsive and fun to drive, but let us not compare apples and oranges.

Each of us likes the 2 Gen xB for many of the same reasons; 1) Oddly and Uniquely Different, 2) Personalizaion, 3) Utlility (not the same old SUV), 4) Economy (this one is tough to see, since the fuel tank is small) and 5) Economics (Cost vs Value vs Resale).

I could go on, I think it's clear why this Generation will be even more popular than the last.
