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.
I love Pathfinders but this body style is got to go-otherwise I would give it five stars
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?
Small enough to not feel like a tank, large enough to roll down the 3rd row and haul anything! Air conditioned seats in the South are clutch! Backup cameras are super helpful when parking in tight spots. Bluetooth capability makes traveling with technology easy without all the cords. Smooth ride!!! Push button start makes digging through my purse for keys a thing of the past.
