Review

I waited to submit a review until after I had my Pathfinder for almost a year, and I have nothing by great things to say. The Pathfinder, much more than any other mid-size SUV, drives like a car. Handling is impeccible and accelleration is smooth and responsive. Plus, the 4WD performance is very capable for the typical SUV owner. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that it'd be nice to have a little more shoulder room in the driver's seat. I'm a broad-shouldered guy, so the roomier the better. But I'm being picky because everything else about the Pathfinder is wonderful!

Review

I'm still enjoying my ride like I did when I purchased it. Leather interior is great. Real wood would be great but the plastic wood still warms up the interior. Put some quality floor mats in and a cargo mat, you're ready to go. I put on the front brush and rear taillight guards and it LOOKS a bit more rugged. I wouldn't count on them for protection. The new 17" rims are a good improvement but are really easy to scratch on the curb. People complain about the rear seat, but I'm driving so I don't care, and my passengers never complain. I also like the styling inside and out, even if it is a bit dated on the outside. Still a good-looking vehicle.


Favorite Features

leather interior, smooth drivetrain and acceleration, 17" rims, overall utility, All/4WD selection and performance, looks


Suggested Improvements

better audio (Bose is too muddy IMHO), stronger air conditioning, gas mileage although I knew how bad it was before I bought it, more forward center console, garage remote is a bit weak in range, 4 wheel disc brakes
