Pros: "Dependability and traction on bad roads."

Cons: "Gas mileage 19-20 average...."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Very dependable, and low maintenance. The only downfall is the gas mileage. We get 18 in town, 24 on the highway (not exceeding 60mph) and 20 on the freeway (over 70mph). It is great in the snow and handles very well."

"I have had my Pathfinder since new. LE package. Very dependable over the years. Only a couple things have needed attention. The brake rotors are thin and tend to warp. The VDC had an issue that Nissan had a hard time trying to get a REAL answer to. The BOSE system had an issue on one of the speakers that sounded like aliens. So for 7 years it has been a pretty good SUV."

"This is my third Pathfinder. All of them have been great cars. Super reliable and a great car for the money. I have owned Chevy trucks, suburban and vans (good), Ford Explorer,Aerostar and Truck(bad), Honda Accord (okay), Volvo sedan (okay), Nissan Frontier (great), Dodge Van,Vista and Truck(okay), Jeep cherokee (okay), etc. Lots of Cars and the Pathfinder has been the best. I have had the 2008 Pathfinder bought used for about three years and not one bit of trouble. It has lots of get up and go, great in the snow. My only complaint are where the seat belts clip in-in the back seats. Probably changed in the new models."

"I bout the car new November 2006, It has served my family well until recently. The radiator is leaking fluid into the transmission and like so many, I have found out there is no recall. I am stuck with the decision to place $6K to repair or get rid of it. The vehicle was serviced during the regular cycle and has turned out to be a piece of trash. Will never suggest anyone buy Nissan."

"I purchased this truck as a Lease return. I has been the best vehicle to own. I have only had normal wear and tear items to attend to. I does great both on pavement and on off-road (running Grapplers). I have taken this vehicle cross country and have many compliments on the comfort of the leather seats and lumbar support. Running Premium gas I actually average close to 28 miles to the gallon highway (not kidding!). My mechanic shop is always impressed with the quality of the parts used on this vehicle, they say it is heavy built and designed to last. The third room is roomy compared to the other comps I looked at and has reasonable access. I love that when I do not have my trailer I can still load 20 bags of mulch thanks to the fact the back two rows lay completely flat. I would love to get a newer version, but can't part with this truck (thanks for all the offers I get to buy it from me though ) :). Love that this is on the truck frame and not the uni-body like so many now have. Sadly this wonderful design was only produced until 2012 or I would have considered another one. But If you are looking at a 2007 they are great! However,they often rare to find, as most owners keep them, like me."
