Plenty of storage and hiding spots.

This vehicle is one of the best vehicles that I have ever owned. It is spacious, rides smooth, and has plenty of storage. There is a cargo cover in the back and it is awesome. I have never had one before. It also has four cup holders and even an ashtray. They are no longer put in cars anymore and even though I don't smoke I can still use it for a change holder.

- Crystal S

Mechanically sound and very sturdy.

Reliable vehicle, no major mechanical problems. Its comfortable and has good cargo space for small family four or five members. Not very good for families bigger than that. Plenty of engine power for towing or going up a mountain and the four wheel drive is great. The seats are decent but not much legroom for the second and third rows.

- Jose E

Great to drive, not great gas mileage.

My pathfinder is very comfortable and has a lot of extra amenities. I wish it got a bit better gas mileage though. I like that it is four wheel drive and drives really well. It is quite comfortable and has a good bit of seating. I have had a lot of mechanical problems with it, but part of that probably comes from it being already used.
