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.
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.
Feels safe, powerful, gets average MPG for size
2007 Nissan PathfinderGearsgirl - San Diego, CA03/29/2011
After driving for several weeks, my 2007 Pathfinder has performed well mechanically. I'm 5'3" and find it easy to adjust for my size; the foot pedals also adjust and seats are comfortable. Power and breaking are impressive and I've found it gets about 15 MPG on average. The undercarriage has an annoying squeak when going over minor bumps in the road, but I love the Bose sound system and minimize the squeak by turning up the stereo ;) The rear door assembly for the first aid kit was missing and the hatch for the spare tire and tools is nearly impossible to open. I give low ratings for interior finish quality; fabric on doors appears faded/mismatched, should be charcoal gray or black but has a purple tint; floor mats do not match and fit poorly; a thin plastic coating around shift assembly trim is peeling badly (looks like skin after a bad sunburn). It's great to drive; smooth, roomy and seats 7 in a pinch. Rear seats fold flat to configure to your needs. I can't wait to take it on trips with bikes or a trailer as long as gas prices don't make it impossible.
