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.
Love, love, love this car! Transitioning from a van and I couldn't be happier. Although not quite as roomie, the space and third row seating is very functional for my needs...not to mention that it is so much more sporty. After test driving this vehicle the Infinity JX35 was the next one to try. I didn't even get off the lot...I preferred the smooth ride and the interior comfort of the Pathfinder that much. I've never had all the bells and whistles that are part of this model and I'm really enjoying them.
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.
