Good truck

BaltimoreDan - Baltimore, MD 11/08/2012

If you want a truck with the benefits of an SUV, this is the vehicle for you -- but remember that it is a truck at the core. It's a rough ride, even on the highway, so plan on getting tossed around a little on rougher city streets. Handling is truck-like and you can feel the idling engine throughout the body of the truck. The tradeoff is that it has terrific off road capability and a high fun factor. Personally, I love the truck feel and don't mind a little bit of unrefined-ness. Gas mileage is better than most in its class while performance is excellent. I got the V8 and get about 19-20 MPG average on the highway. Stop-and-go depends on how heavy your foot is but my mileage hovers around 16-17 MPG. The interior is extremely bland unless you're getting the LE, which is quite nicely equipped. Fit and finish is very decent. Every car has its particular issues and the Pathfinder is no exception. When buying a used one, be prepared to replace a few minor sensors (speed sensor, tire pressure sensors if equipped) and bushings (stabilizer bar bushings, hood stops, body mount bushings). Some bigger issues common to the Pathfinder to watch out for are a commonly defective radiator which causes transmission failure, corrosion of rear A/C lines, and engine timing chain guide failure. Overall, this is a great truck and I've been quite happy with mine.

I absolutely love this vehicle! The price was right for all the extras; the seat heaters rock! I am not used to such luxury, but I can definitely get used to this horsepower. The only complaint I have is a slight rocking from side to side when I hit bumps in the road. Other than that, I love this car for our family of four.

2008 Nissan Pathfinder

hgconrad - Montgomery Village, MD 12/13/2010

I'm very pleased with this automobile. I did a lot of research and it came down to a Toyota Highlander or a Nissan Pathfinder. Both were about the same price and rating. The Pathfinder is more of a truck ride then the highlander but I bought it for towing and the Pathfinder hauled a bigger load. Needless to say I like the car a lot. What I don't like is the 18 MPG average and the need of premium fuel but a small price to pay for performance.
