About Nissan Pathfinder

With its rough and rugged off-roading ways in the past, the latest-generation Nissan Pathfinder is a sensible, economical and versatile family vehicle. Now based on a sedan-like platform vs. a truck chassis, the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder crossover SUV is more comfortable and more efficient than past iterations. Now in its 30th year, the Pathfinder becomes more appealing for 2017 with a freshening that grants more power and safety features. The Pathfinder competes well against other 3-row midsize SUVs like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Chevrolet Traverse, but at seven passengers max the Nissan holds one less than those rivals. That factor aside, the Pathfinder remains a roomy, easy-to-drive family SUV that still boasts light off-road chops and the ability to tow 6,000 pounds.

"Bought a new 2013 Pathfinder in August 2013. In November 2013 took it to the dealer due to shaking/shuddering and was told that it needed a new transmission. At that time, the mileage was 2361. Well, that one lasted until last week. Another transmission was required and was installed at 26,600 miles. So, I have a 3 year old vehicle with 26,700 miles which is on its third transmission. Yes, there have been far too many recalls on various items on this vehicle. I recently received two recall notices, one was taken care of at the same time the transmission was replaced. The other recall advises that I will receive another letter when the parts are available. This vehicle is not long for my garage. We are researching other SUVs but the problem is that I am 6'5" tall and do not fit in most vehicles. My wife will not even go look at vehicles until I go and "try them on". I have work to do."

"I am driving my Platinum Hybrid Pathfinder for now 2 years and I have absolutely only enjoyment. Gas mileage reached 39.9 MPG with an average of 27 in city area, I was expecting less than that reading several comments prior purchase, but I do save gas over my previous non-hybrid SUV by watching my driving and interacting with the other users on the road differently (cautious acceleration and earlier use of the breaks). The car has all the options a car should have (DVD player with 3 zones playing, bluetooth for phone but also all connections for music and video: Xbox, videos, internet youtube via the phone and netfix...), just missing the 4 x 4 option which I knew I will never use in Georgia. All in all it is a dream car, I will buy another of those when this one will die, expecting in 7+ more years."

"I'd been looking for an SUV with a 3rd row for over 6 months that was under $30K and was not having any luck. But after I saw the new design of the Pathfinder, and that a local dealer had a used 2013 in stock I went and test drove it (March 2014). I instantly loved the feel of the drive, and the look of the dash and interior, the gas mileage and most of all price ($28K for the SV model with 25K miles). My husband and I both really wanted a Highlander but could not find an affordable used one. We also considered the Pilot but did not like the boxy look or feel of the interior. So the Pathfinder seemed like a good mix of price and style. However, after I bought it I saw all the negative reviews with multiple recalls and issues with the transmission. Needless to say I had major buyers remorse and seriously considered returning it. But my husband insisted he thought the transmission was fine since it already had 25K miles on it and we did not feel/hear any similar issues with jerking, etc. We also confirmed with the dealer that it had a 100K drivetrain warranty that included the transmission. It's been 2 months since we've owned it. We still love the feel of the seats and roominess of the interior. It's definitely bigger in size to the Highlander. However, there are a few annoyances. The cloth interior is almost like suede, and so it looks kind of dirty all the time. I also noticed on the driver/front passenger door handles some of the cloth is wearing off already. I've wiped it down and it seems to clear it up a little. I also agree with previous reviewers now that the dash computer screen looks a little outdated. Kinda 80'sish with these diagonal lines. However, it drives super smooth, has a good turn radius and looks decent on the exterior (I still prefer the look to the Highlander though). I don't think it'll be a car that I own forever. But based on it being a Nissan, I'm hoping it can last us a good 10 years. I drive approximately 20 miles a day to/from work/daycare and average 21 mpg with about 60-70 of that in town and the rest highway. So I'm very happy with the gas mileage. I also wanted to say that there are companies that pay people to write "fake" reviews. So please make sure you read all of the reviews with that caveat in mind. I can't help but wonder if the true overall rating of the Pathfinder would be lower. I normally would not write a review on something I'm still undecided on. But I wanted to provide a true consumer review, and my opinion on the SUV."
