overall, the Nissan pathfinder is a great car, with lots of stuff to be good.

2012 Nissan Pathfinder Silver Edition

overall, the Nissan pathfinder is a great car with little to no flaws. The only bad part about it is its make. You have to be careful with it to make sure it doesn't touch anything, as it is somewhat weak. The performance on the car is amazing, allowing you focus on the road while doing everything else to make sure you and everyone else is safe and having fun, because it also has a music player. New and old users of Nissan will get used to this cars comfort very quickly, as the sleek design and softness of the seats will make you feel like you're driving a car from heaven. The car has so many other features and storage compartments so that having being a parent or a single driver will still help you into your comfort zone.

Great mid-size SUV with great flexibility of the interior space.

2012 Nissan Pathfinder

Love the size. Get the SUV space and feel without it being so large that it is hard to park. Love the space in the back and the way the seats can fold down independently. Do not love the console though, no open space to put small items except the enclosed arm rest and a whole/space in the dash that things fall out of when you make turns. Cup holders in the door are not useful - they are small and hard to get drinks in and out of. Gas mileage is not great. These are the small details that I wish I could improve, however, when it comes to the important details - reliability, comfort, space - I love the pathfinder.

They did a good job with the TV.

2012 Nissan Pathfinder S

It originally had cotton seats, but I wanted leather. They did a terrible job of putting the leather in, they left the seats in the car while they replaced them, and the seat belts are very hard to buckle in the back because they fall down in between the seats if they are not buckled. The back panels of the two back rows of seats are all falling off and they didn't do a very good job of trying to fix it. Also, the side trim on the doors are still the cotton so it just throws the whole thing off with cotton on the sides with leather seats. There is also a hole in my roof that they made and didn't bother to fix.
