Pathfinder Platinum

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


Absolutely Love this vehicle.
Bought 3 weeks ago, I average 25K miles a year, and so far it is wonderful with no problems.
Does not have the power of my previous Titan V8, but for a V6 with a CVT Transmission, it does great for my needs.
Researched Ford Explorer Limited and Pathfinder, mulled over all the blogs, comments and bottom line for me, the Price for the vehicle & all the Premium Platinum features verses the Ford Explorer Limited, along with the "trade Value" three years from now, Nissan won this buyer over again.
Especially love the remote start and heated/cooled seats.
So Far So Good!!

Update: Traded it in July of 2015 for a 2015 Chevy Truck. Only thing wrong with the Pathfinder was in the winter, SNOW would build up in the wheel wells since they went straight through from outside to inside, and once you parked for any length of time the upper sections of the wheel wells would MELT and re-freeze lower thus when you drove again all the wheels would be out of balance and it shook like a earthquake at 40MPH or higher, UNTIL I would go to a car wash and melt them off with a hot water rinse which took 20-30 minutes each time.
360 camera view also a neat feature!!
