Editor's Overview

The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder remains a smart choice among 3-row family haulers thanks to its sedan-like ride quality and nifty features such as the Around View bird's-eye monitor and easy-access rear-seat entry system. But unlike the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Chevy Traverse, the Pathfinder seats only seven rather than up to eight like its rivals.

If you want a reliable car. I would recommend, getting a 2016 Nissan Pathfinder.

This 2016 Nissan Pathfinder is all wheel drive. It's a gas saver, although its a 6 cyl. Rides and performs well. Seats seven adults comfortably. Gets me from point A to point B and c and so forth. Has keyless start up. . Haven't had any problems, or issues with this Nissan. I recommend this Nissan to all my friends and any one who wants to seat 7 adults comfortably.

The pathfinder is great for families due to its reliability, comfort, and size.

I love the cameras, there is a backup camera and a birds eye view in addition to side cameras, I really have a 360 degree view. This makes backing up and parking a breeze. The leather seats are comfortable for long trips. I have two children and a dog and have plenty of room for them and a double stroller and even some cargo room. Gas mileage on average is 19-23.

We have had zero issues with our Nissan pathfinder.

Our Nissan is black with a leather tan interior. It rides great, has 3 seats which is great for hauling our grandchildren. The mileage was great when we bought it new but seems to be getting less miles to the gallon. We have excellent service on our Nissan pathfinder at lupine Nissan in Rochester MN. This is our second Nissan. We have had zero problems with it.
