Mother and Dog owner POV
By Happy Nissan Owner on
2008 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Pros: Rugged interior makes for a easier clean when you have dogs in the back. The whole back cargo area of my SE has a rubber/plastic type floor and walls that make dog hair in the vehical a lot more manageable. Doors open really wide and the doorway is nice and wide/tall (great for loading and unloading kids from car seats! Two sets of rear vents that help keep your kids/dogs at the same temperature as you (I hated in my Jeep GC SUV that I would be boiling in the front with the heat and my daughter would be freezing in the second row with no vents). 3 rows of seats are real handy if you ever are in a bind and need to move some extra kids. Backup camera is great with kids/dog
Rugged interior. Rear heat/air vents. Nice wide and tall doors. Backup camera on the SE model. Better gas mileage then my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Better ride then my Jeep (if you are complaining about the truck like ride on this SUV then do not buy a SUV. Buy a car! Quiet, can barely hear the engine.
Why the heck does the SE model not come standard with automatic lights?! Needs heated mirrors. Move the stinking dash radio on/off/volume control. My husband hits it every time he tries to turn off the engine resulting in the radio blasting Need more room for 3rd row. Only good for small kids
