2008 Nissan PathfinderWannabe Car Guy - Rock Hill, SC11/10/2008
I bought the Pathfinder as a replacement for a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer that had become unreliable. The Pathfinder offers a 3rd row of seats and ventilation controls in the ceiling for passenger comfort. Access to the 3rd row is very easy. All you have to do is pull a lever on one of the second row seats and they tumble forward and out of the way. The 3rd row seats are rather small and should only be used for children, but it is a nice feature when visiting family. It allows my sister's family and us to travel in one vehicle rather than two. The cargo area is covered in a plastic material that holds up well to abuse. Just be careful when sliding materials inside that can scratch the plastic. The driving experience is much better than it was in the trailblazer. The steering is much more communicative and precise. The suspension is much tighter and respondes well to road imperfections. The 4.0L V6 has plenty of power for hauling around a car full of passengers or a weekends worth projects in a trailer. The four wheel driver system has worked perfectly with no problems. The vehicle is just right for people looking for something that is a little more robust and can handle so medium duty towing than your typical crossover.
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.
