Nice contrast to a Toyota 4Runner

2008 Nissan Pathfinder SE-V8 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
Traded in an '04 T4R Sport with a V8 for this and I'm very happy. Having two T4Rs ('00 + '04) I was wary getting a Nissan but it's been a blast (so far). The V8 is extremely powerful yet is very thirsty (13-14 mpg in mixed driving) and likes premium fuel. Thankfully I have a very short commute. Interior is nicely laid out. Love the premium package features (back-up cam), stereo sounds good, iPod hook-up, automatic 4x4, dual-zone AC, etc. However, heated side mirrors should not be only for the leather pkg. Lame. Handles well but the T4R with X-REAS handled much better in turns. I too have the problems w/ the power seat controls getting touched while exiting the truck. It's a p.i.t.a.
Premium package and the Information Center, back-up camera, dual-zone climate control, stereo, fold-flat 3rd row seats, plastic trunk lining, acceleration, selectable/automatic 4x4, comfortable ride, payload capacity... the list could go on. I really like this vehicle.
Dual lamps (per side) for the headlights. Single lamps per side don't cut it and it's somewhat hard to see on dark roads even w/ brights on. Add heated side mirrors to all models regardless of pkg. Suspension that's not so 'shimmery' over rough pavement.
