Editor's Overview

For 2013, the all-new Nissan Pathfinder transforms from a rugged, truck-based layout to a car-derived modern crossover with a unitized body, competing directly against such mainstream 7-passenger big-sellers as the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Traverse.

Best midsize SUV for its class.

This is an overall great SUV. The handling is great. The best part is even though Nissan seemed to have a lot of trouble I haven't had any issues with my car outside of regular maintenance. Surprisingly for a mid size SUV the vehicle also gets really good gas mileage. I am able to get from California to Las Vegas nevada on one tank of gas. Another great feature the car is having a DVD player in it built on to the back of the headsets so kids can watched their movies on road trips. The ecossaise comes equipped with GPS navigation and rear camera so you are backing up you do not run into things.

Love my Nissan! Perfect family SUV, but it is also good for a couple.

No problems! Absolutely love my car! It is the premium package with the video players for our grandchildren. The color is mocha! I think it was the first year they made that color. It has a Bose sound system that is to die for. The back up camera is the best I have ever seen in any car, especially at night. I use the ‘camera ‘ feature on the car every time I park in a parking lot. It is awesome. You can see exactly where you are in the parking space and how close to the other vehicles you are.

SUV style vehicle with plenty of room but still manages to get great gas mileage.

The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is an excellent family vehicle. With one young child and another on the way our family is not worried about finding space or having to buy a new vehicle to make room. For how large this SUV is, it still provides excellent mileage both on the highway and in the city. This year of Pathfinder has also proven to hold up well on gravel and rough terrain that we Traverse on our property. Overall a great vehicle for everyone.
