2008 Nissan Pathfinder
There are 5 user reviews for the S 4X2 trim shown below
- Exterior Style, Comfortable front seats, a lot of storage
- Rough ride, minimal features, vibration above 60 mph, loud
If it wasn't for the Nissan Sales Event (I got $10,500 off the sticker) I would have never bought this vehicle.
Rough ride, noisy cabin, cheaply appointed, no side curtain airbags as standard equipment, vibration above 60 mph, sways above 60mph.
I also have a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. I am no spokesman for Hyundai, but the Santa Fe is the absolute best SUV for the value. It rides like a lexus at half the price, plus the warranty is great....read morehide

- Roomy, Rides good, Affordable, Looks Good
- Gas milage of course!!
My husband and I bought this vehicle for our growing family. We have one child right now and anohter one on the way. With two car seats and the baggage that come with two kids, you need all the space you can get. This vehicle really has it. Its not too big and its not too small. We looked at several other SUV'S and by far we got the better deal with this one. The V6 is great!! I dont feel like the vehicle is gonna get away from me as I would if I had the V8 and I dont feel like I am driving a bus!! We will defiantly keep this vehicle until the kids are out of the car seats and in booster seats. The ride is also a plus. Handles great on the road. The suspension is just right. Not bumpy at all. Just glides on the road. The third row seating is a blessing also. Easy to get in and out. Just a pull of a handle and there you go. EASY!!!! I would defiantly buy this vehicle again....read morehide

- Plenty of room inside, Easy access to 3rd row, Lots of cargo room
- Ride some what rough, Premium fuel recommended, Bad gas milage
Just bought the Pathfinder before our second child was born and I will have to say that it is a pretty good deal. There is plenty of room for your average guy. I find it very easy to get in and out of with no trouble and there is plenty of leg and head room inside. My only qualm with the truck is the gas milage. I have an 05 Toyota Tacoma with the same size engine, 4.0 liter V6 and I average a good 5-6 mpg better than the Pathfinder and that is on Regular unleaded fuel. The Pathfinder is a great family car and looks great all cleaned up. If you are considering purchasing I would definitely make sure you are ready for the gas costs before buying....read morehide

- Plenty of Room, Best HP TQ in class, Better Value than Honda/Toyota
- Brakes and Steering Kinda sensitive, Wind Buffering with rear windows down
I needed an upgrade from my Honde CR-V wich was very uncomfortable, small, no power, my wife hated the car.Researched over the net and it came down to three options; Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder, or Toyota 4Runner. I test drove a Pilot and it was just as uncomfortable as my CR-V(seats felt like I was sitting in a chair not a seat), power was better(244hp 244tq) but still seemed to lack, was very bland and bare inside and out(CHEAP). Toyota just seemed to be overpriced in my research for what you get so I didn't even bother.
Test drove the Pathfinder and was sold almost instantly the ride is very smooth for an SUV, seats are very comfortable, great power(266hp 288tq), great turn radius(Better than my smaller CR-V's turn radius), very clean look inside and out. I purchased just the base model (added floormats) but came with some nice stock goodies (tow hitch, digital display for DTE,MPG,trip timer, tire pressure monitor indicator, little bit better tire SBRP245/75R16 Grabber vice honda SBRP235/70R16 all season) A few little things that are a little different is the steering and brakes takes a little bit to get use to (kinda sensitive), and we found that with the rear widows down there is a buffering sound. Other than, my wife and I both enjoy driving our Pathfinder and would recommend it to anyone!!!...read morehide

- Fuel Economy (4L), Ride, Seating for 7, Quality
- No second row captain chairs cost Nissan the deal
Probably best SUV on the market but the bright minds at Nissan forgot a relatively simple solution consumer want, easy kid access to third raw. Adults seldom occupy the "kid raw" as I call it and unless you want your kids to wait out in the heat or cold and watch you wrestle with the second raw seat, it makes so much more sense to just open the door and let the youngsters in first. This way they don't wander off onto the parking lot and risk getting by another car while you back is turned on them and you're playing around with the second raw seat. The youngsters easily slip in betweent he captain chairs and lock themselves in the booster chairs. What a great feature that cost any car maker probably nothing but helps sell cars, especially for people with kids who, like my wife, refuse to buy a mini van. After all not every wife wants to be labled a socker mom. At the end of the day, we went with the new Acadia. Good luck shoping for your perfect ride, hope this review helped a bit....read morehide
