What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Nissan Pathfinder

Nissan Pathfinder Personal Experiences: Pros
2013 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 3.5L V6
Over the past 20 years I have owned a Sentra, Maxima, Titan and Altima. The main reason I purchased the Pathfinder was because of my previous experience with Nissan. Their cars have been very reliable, with my Maxima having over 200,000 miles on it before it was traded in. full 2013 Nissan Pathfinder review
2006 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Great four wheel drive, reasonable price, very good features. I also like the looks of the 3rd gen. full 2006 Nissan Pathfinder review
