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.
We love this car. It holds my family with room to spare. And there's room left over. Lots of storage. We often gold down back row when we go shopping or to the beach. My three children fit with room to spare in the middle row. And one is still in a car seat.
I wanted an SUV w/4 wheel drive and offroad capability - this SUV has delivered superbly. The gas mileage is quite good (~20), the handling is steady, the ride comfortable w/many seat positions. Plenty of power for easy accelaration and the cargo area is huge - never run out of room. Mechanically, it has been very reliable- I am very pleased w/this vehicle.
