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.
This car is large and the ride is okay, but it is missing so much of the basics that a luxury car should have, It does not remind you to put on your seat belt, it doesn't lock automatically, the rear view mirrors to not adjust, the back door does not open and close must of the time like it should, the remote does not start the car unless it is close to the no key entry most of the time, if you heat the driver's seat you also heat the passenger's seat as well, the nagivation system doesn't work in all states. It doesn't give information for MS and I live 15 minutes from MS in TN. I can go on and on.
I do like the inside of the car with the leather seats, the Sirius radio but the control panel is impossible to work unless you read every thing in the manual and even then it's impossible to figure out how to change the Sirius radio back to FM. The other thing I am a total Pathfinder person-my previous Pathfinder was a 2008 and I loved the body style and that's what I wanted but could not get it with the newer car which is irritating., Every car I see on the road is exactly like my Pathfinder now and there's no distinction, looks more like a luxury vehicle than a real SUV even though I like things about the the car if I could exchange it for the older model for body style, I would. Why make a good car so unoriginal as far as style goes?
