2013 Nissan Pathfinder SL 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Bought this car to accommodate children, and have regretted it for the past 3 years. The gas mileage is 25% lower than advertised, the doors slam on my legs constantly (as a result, I never let my kid climb in or out without me holding the door open). The third row seat is useless if you need to have even a load of groceries at the time - no legroom, hard to get back there to put carseats if you want to give teens/adults the 2nd row. The technology/entertainment was outdated in 2013 and even more noticeably so now. And constant repairs, including the most recent left hand door handle but in the past it's been the lift gate, airbag sensors, just issue after issue. Poor value, I would associate this poor level of quality with a much less costly vehicle.

Review

Owned this vehicle for two months having the transmission replaced for the second time. The vehicle will randomly lose power under acceleration. Pull off the road put the vehicle in park and hope it starts working and your not hit in the mean time. This is issue appears to be extremely prevalent in the vehicle. Nissan and the dealerships have done an excellent job keeping this information out of the review and ratings for this vehicle. I relied on Edmunds review of the vehicle in error as they do not mention this pervasive, expensive and dangerous condition in one of the vehicles major systems the transmission. After the vehicles warranty runs out at 60k you can expect a $4900.00 bill for repair. They keep the transmission in stock and are happy to see you for this expensive repair. Nissan offers no explanation or repair for this issue so your new transmission will be the same unreliable design. Do not believe anything the dealer says out this issue as Nissan has not been able to correct this issue but continues to sell the vehicle. Even if your under warranty the fact this lose of power may happen to you in a critical driving situation should dissuade you from a purchase, not to mention the lose of use during repair. Steer clear of this vehicle. I hope this review helps others avoid my mistake.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Rather fun to drive. HOWEVER-- I just learned today that the roof rack is not adjustable, which should be sort of a no-brainer for any suv. This is because the rails are not parallel, unlike my GMC Yukon which has an easily-adjustable roof rack. In addition, the vehicle has quite a bit of road noise including the "whistling windshield" which had to be replaced soon after purchase. Gas mileage is not impressive, and the CVT is a distraction. Our biggest concern has been the defective passenger-side airbag which has been recalled. When we asked the dealer last year (before recall) why it remained off when the seat is occupied the technician said that my wife "might not be sitting on it properly". Would not recommend.
