Affordable three row midsize SUV.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

This vehicle is overall pretty mediocre. In the pros category are its affordability and that it has plenty of back and third row seating space as compared to other midsize three row SUVs. In the cons category I would put that the heater blows like the low setting on a cheap hair dryer, the clock goes away when you use hands free calling, and the little hubcap things with the Nissan logo on the wheels fell off within 9 months of purchasing this vehicle new and I was told I'd have to pay $120 each to replace them.

Nissan Pathfinder - Great for Families without diminished performance!

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

Vehicle has great power and is very comfortable inside. Features are pretty basic, the interactive screen is more basic than some of the newer tablet-like interfaces, but still performs all necessary functions. Seats are easy to reconfigure, and it has good room in the middle seats (I can fit in between 2 kids car seats in the back without having to use the 3rd row for passengers).

Review of Nissan pathfinder.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

Drives very smooth, comfortable for long drives. Very good handling. Fits plenty of people and is very spacious. It has nice looks, nice design, and a stylish inside. Problems would include the slow acceleration which is behind many of its competitors. Another problem is an infotainment and UI system that is non intuitive, has problems, and needs a lot of improvement.

- Brad B

Perfect SUV for the family.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

I absolutely love my pathfinder. It is very comfortable and roomy on trips. I love the third row of seats that are easy up and down. I decided to opt outs of navigation on this vehicle because so many people at dealership said it was a waste of money. I have only had 1 problem that was not a recall and was a faulty part. Warranty covered it and the fix was very fast.

What I like about my pathfinder.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

My 2017 Nissan pathfinder is fabulous. It has everything I could ask for. I love the dual air conditioning and heater controls. Heated seats and steering wheel great in winter. The backup camera is no doubt a must. Easy fold down seats open up a very large back trunk like area for a lot of cargo room. I also like the fact all my maintenance has reminders.

- Colleen B

Comfortable seats and no blind spot.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

Love the options that I have. There is not a blind spot in this car. The seating is very comfortable both in the front and middle, the back seat is a little tight. I have remote start but do not use it that often. I wish it had the apple car play app. It is annoying to have to have a GPS on the dashboard or have to use my smartphone as is for navigation.

First Impressions: 2017 Pathfinder

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

My 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is extremely comfortable. The seats are cushioned and just right. It is easy to drive, with a wide windshield and reliable blind spot indicators. The ride is quiet, even on the highway. We love being able to have the third row for when my kids take friends along, or fold it down when our two huge dogs are on the road with us.

- Rebecca W

Nissan pathfinder - room for all.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

I absolutely love this vehicle - spacious backseat and cargo area. Third row is a bit tight but the adjustable middle row helps to add leg room. Heated seats and steering wheel are amazing in the cold weather. My only issue with my vehicle is that the pearl white requires a lot of coats if there are paint touch ups needed which means expensive.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder; impression after 18,000 miles.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

My Pathfinder with leather interior/seats is comfortable to drive. I average just under 24 mpg with a combination of city and highway driving. I have not had any reliability issues or repairs, just routine oil changes and tire rotations. Sound system is good but not great. Map update is overpriced at $129 plus tax and shipping.

- Rob H

Quiet Ride, great for family trips!

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

The only issue I have is the Drive is so close L on the transmission that at times I don't realize my car isn't in drive but in L. Overall I really do like the ride of the Pathfinder, it is very quiet and I don't get much noise on the interstate. I would definitely recommend the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder.

Pathfinder-Powerful yet Smooth

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

I love the Pathfinder. I've had it for a little over a year and It has never broken down. The car is very smooth and it looks great. Sometimes at high speeds the car will slightly stall. For the most part the vehicle is very dependable and safe. I'd recommend a pathfinder to anyone who wants a SUV

- Bradley L

It has a screen that shows you the tire pressure in each tire.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

It is very spacious inside, plenty of legroom even in the second row. It has third row seating that is very easy to pull up or fold down. The seats are comfortable. It also gets very good gas mileage. It has lots of cargo space in the back when the third row is down. The ride is very smooth.

- Norma M

Problems with handles secondary to cheap materials.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

The only complaint was the interior door handle cable has a tendency to break which an be expensive to fix and almost impossible to fix yourself because the panels break when you try to open to expose the cable. The rear door outside handle also is plastic and breaks under cold temperature.

- Vladimir K

everything you need and want

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

easy to drive, the seats are very comfortable, love my heated steering wheel, second row seats move easily and allow extra legroom, on board navigation is easy to use, heated back seats and individual climate controls, third row is comfortable and fold flat for more cargo storage

- tammy N

Perfect for a family of 4.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

- Monica D

Drives well and comfortable.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

No problems with the pathfinder. Handles well and it's comfortable. Great for long trips and is roomy. Perfect for taking trips with the grandchildren.Rear cameras and screen is fantastic to add to safety of vehicle. Factory radio is very nice with good sound.

- Lynn E

This is a great SUV for the family. Comfort with reclining seats 3rd row.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL

Nissan pathfinder is a very dependable, well riding vehicle. It has 4 wheel drive to get in tough places. It is a great SUV with plenty of room. Great on gas. It is able to ride smoothly on any terrain. It is able to get up and go in a hurry. I love it.
