Purchased on 2-18-13 the suv drives and handles well.
The vehicle is roomy inside and not too large on the outside. Averages about 25 mpg at 70 mph and over 26 at 55-60 mph.
Expect 20-21 mpg in local driving.
Well pleased with the Pathfinder except for transmission problems.
On slow acceleration, 20 to 25 mph,the transmission will shutter/shake.
The problem repeats at about 40 mph.
On 4-17-13, the Nissan dealer, who was very helpful, advised Nissan is aware of the problem but has no fix at this time.
A Nissan Service Bulletin, dated Jan '13, did NOT fix the transmission! Hope the repair comes soon as I fear the transmission will fail while traveling.
Good handling, brakes, smooth ride, OK gas mileage for a SUV.
Looks good in Cayenne red.
