You'll Like The 2009 Nissan Pathfinder If...

Even if you seldom go off-road, you might still appreciate the Pathfinder's ability to give the most accomplished nameplates a mud-run for their money. And if you're looking for a people-mover that comes across as more mountain man and less soccer mom, the Pathfinder should more than suffice.

The Nissan Pathfinder is a very reliable suv with highly positive reviews.

I love my Nissan Pathfinder, it's roomy and has a lot of power! I've hardly had to make any repairs and Nissan is a highly trustable company. The only complaint I have is it gets poor gas mileage...

- Tanda r

A great thing about this car is that it has a folding third row seat so you can have a full car or more room for items in the back!

it's a really great car. great heating and cooling great on gas! doesn't cost much to maintain at all! i recommend buying a pathfinder today they are great family friendly cars with plenty of room!

- denise p

that it gets great gas mileage, rides comfortably and is probably one of the best cars we have ever had

My pathfinder has enough room to sit 8 comfortably. It handles like a breeze. This vehicle has really had no major problems and has taught us what a good vehicle is all about
