At least until the transmission issues with stuttering and surging are sorted out, avoid this one. The storage spaces are poorly thought out, can't get the glove compartment open if there's a passenger in the front. The center console screen is confusing and low quality. No Bluetooth music connectivity unless you spring for navigation, and the Bluetooth phone is really noisy.
V6 with the CVT has tons of instant torque. 3.5L engine has been very reliable in my Altima, so I expect it to last. Good headroom in 3rd row.
Fix the transmission already!! Have a factory running board option... too tall for little kids to climb in unassisted. Better layout, especially in the dash and center console with the storage. Upgrade the center console screen. Make Bluetooth music streaming available without nav, or even standard (bought a $30 adapter on Amazon to add it to my car).
