I was looking for a very specific car since I was going to be doing a motor/drivetrain swap- so for my needs the car had to have the ms45.1 dme (engine computer/harness)
As for the xit- the only thing I know is that the suspension and anything awd related can get pricey, but I dint have much personal experience.
If you decide not to get an xit, then I would recommend avoiding the SULEV 325s... They are super ultra low emissions vehicles which means anything in the emissions system is
Covered under warranty until 100k miles but after that you are on your own... And they have VERY expensive replacement parts as almost every piece of the fuel delivery to the exhaust was SULEV specific.
