The Nissan Pathfinder has excellent power and acceleration for a V-6. I find the ride and seats about average, better than a Kia SUV, but not as good as a Ford SUV or even F-150. This truck is very noisy for the price Nissan wants. I find it to be the noisiest SUV in it class. The gas mileage is really bad for a 4.0L V-6, much worse than the 4.0L Ford Explorer, but more power than the Ford, or even the Toyots 4-Runner or Highlander. With gas at $3-$4, a gallon, or more, this SUV can hurt you like a Chevy Suburban. Towing is better than most of the other mid-sized SUVs. It "heels over" in the turns, but doesn't give the feeling it will roll over. It could use a wider track. This is a good looking SUV, but it really needs to be updated, the design is several years old. It does give the feeling of a Frontier with an enclosed bed. Overall, I would recommend buying it, if you can get it for a fair price.
The Nissan Pathfinder was our way of getting somewhere close to the luxury of the Armada (what we wanted) without the extra leg room or the higher price tag....we knew there would be trade-offs with not paying for the Armada, but it's just not worth what we got. One of my boys (10 yrs old) gets car sick every time he gets in the car. We paid to have a DVD system put into the vehicle which won't actually work the way it should. The USB port won't read the movies we have on it at all. I have tried to adjust myself in the front seat and bonked my head more times than I can count just trying to sit up. There is a severe tremble during idle when the A/C is running which drives my husband nutty.
Good value for the money at this level ( SL ) ride is very good,cabin is much quieter than Murano. Love the additional space inside. Gas mileage avg 20 mph in town, 23/24 highway, not bad at 75 mph. Over all car handles well.
