We looked at every single car in this market segment. Hands down the Nissan Pathfinder came out on top in just about all of our criteria.It is a ton of value for the money and the fuel mileage is great. great family car for the money by JNL family from Bristol CT on August 9, 2016 Great family car ...Like the additional 7 passenger seats for additional riders. I will attempt to review this new car while also comparing to Explorer.
The car operates in 2 wheel drive but can be put into intelligent mode which sends power to the rear wheels if slippage occurs or locked mode which keeps all four wheels turning continuously for those treacherous snowy/heavy rain situations. I think this car drives and handles very much like a car -a good thing.
It soaks up bumps well, turns and corners with little body roll and keeps most of the noise out.
The interior seats conform to your body, making it a much smoother ride.
The pure size of the vehicle make the gas mileage not that great.
My wife's 2010' Taurus has projector beams but my 16' Pathfinder doesn't? Still, it's a very well put together car with tight gap-tolerances and a high build quality to the body.
Inside, the interior shows where all the true thought and attention went. I was able to sync my phone, program stations and work the Nav system while the financing department was still working on the deal!
The large grill flanked by expansive chrome pieces underpinned by a chrome bar in the lower dam are all nice.
The sides also get accented by the chrome along the rocker panels and then onto the lift gate.
Great vehicle for a growing family by Nate from Yoakum, TX on September 25, 2016 We were in the market for a new grand cherokee when we found out that we were expecting our 2nd child.
Since we are going to now have 2 car seats plus all the extra stuff that goes along with it we needed more room.
The seats are very supportive, supremely comfortable and the first 2 rows are heated with the driver and passenger are also cooled. The way the 2nd row folds, you do not have to remove the car seat to access the third row.
