Vehicle runs good, good on gas

The car is reliable, a few features are different of what I'm used to... I owned a Ford Explorer before and most features are different( non folding mirrors) my ford has a button and you can fold mirror from the inside of the vehicle vs. folding it from the inside.... cooling seats is not a feature on this vehicle... automatic folding rear seat( 3rd row) is simple things that make a working mother with kids life easier

- Sahudie D

Comfort and ride with economical gas mileage.

This is a very sturdy, comfortable vehicle. Seats are very comfortable. Gas mileage is good. Average 26. 1 in town. Rides well. Second row seats are very comfortable and have ample leg room. Second seat has its own heating and air conditioning control. . Can see out windows well. Has blind spot light and braking if you get too close to another car.

- Barb R

The best car ride of my life.

I am a proud owner of a Nissan pathfinder 2018, very pleased with the cars performance, gas mileage, safest features. And I must say. It is great for family outings, comfortable ride, the pathfinder is very dependable for my family. I would most definitely purchase me another one. Even the Nissan salesperson was very professional as well.
