The reliability of this car so far has been fantastic.

I have had this pathfinder since January. The ride is fantastic and it handles really well. The gas mileage is good for a mid size SUV and it has good performance as well. It has multiple USB charging outlets as well as a 110 outlet in the rear. I really love the power liftgate as well as the auto liftgate. The adaptive cruise is amazing and I use it all the time as I drive a lot. The backup camera is nice as well as the blind spot warning system. The only thing that I have an issue is with the doors. They close very easily and sometimes don't want to stay open. I had a 2016 pathfinder and had this same issue. On an incline or with a good breeze the door will close back on your legs. I have put 11, 000 miles on my 2018 so far and it is wonderful.

Good value for what you pay, great for a growing family. Windshield wipers need to go faster for safety purposes in intense rain.

I like the third row seat. It is roomy and comfy compared to other similar vehicles. I like that it came with more "bells and whistles" for its price than other similar SUVs. It has pretty decent gas mileage. I dislike that the driver's seat moves forward and back when turning on and off the vehicle. I dislike the look of the outside of it. I also have already had a couple lights come on even though it's brand new. It turned out to be a minor computer error within the vehicle. I dislike the windshield wipers because they do not go fast enough when it's raining incredibly hard. Makes me very nervous for safety.

Great family vehicle with third row seating option

We absolutely love our pathfinder! We have a third row with two seats in the back perfect for older kids. Our only concern with the third row is the amount of space for legs. Big kids will quickly outgrow the third row seating. We currently have 2 car seats comfortably in the second row. The backup camera is a great safety feature that helps those not comfortable with backing up or parallel parking. Seats are all spacious and very comfortable. Extra under storage in trunk space is great!
