Review

Traded in Pathfinder for more quiet and something easier to get in and out of. Surprised to find XC wider and longer than PF when going into garage for the first time. Steering takes getting used to. Tranny rough at slow speeds in neighborhood (auto and manual). Excellent hiway car. Adequate power. Still playing with driving position - comfortable/heated seats a boon to a bad back. Getting 21 to 23 mpg.

Review

A good practical car with much improved exterior design from earlier models. The lack of standard transmission is a serious mistake. The geartronic works but the lag in shifting and the difficulty in knowing what gear you are in is disorienting and limits performance. Driving is very civilized and secure, but suffers from lack of feedback to driver. The feeling is of a refined car being driven in accord with your commands by someone else, rather than a sense of the car being an extension of oneself.

I can not report on reliability I have only owned the car for a week. The care screams quality through and through.You fell like you are driving a tank its so solid Do your homework ahead of time to help get the best price. The demand for this car and their SUV is so steep they don't like to haggle. Thanks to Edmunds I paid $500 over invoice with 2.9% financing
