Bought 2014 Pathfinder in Oct. '13 & have not been disappointed. My wife and I are very pleased with this SUV. It is comfortable, handles well & the controls are laid out perfectly. We have had no issues with this car what so ever! We reviewed & test drove many models when shopping to include Highlander, MDX, CX9 & Explorer & the Pathfinder which is hands down #1 in our opinions.

We have owned our 2014 Pathfinder for 14 months and 26,000 miles. Great fun Suv to drive. Tows the boat great. Only issue has been rear parking sensor in below zero weather, or road salt coating on sensor. Avg mpg 21-23 combined, and 24-25 on hwy trips. We have loaded it up with 2 adults, 4 kids, and 3 hockey bags. It is comfortable, handles well and rides nice. Winter driving has been very good. Love the 4x4 capability. Great price for 7 passengers and fits great in the garage. Comfortable size for both of us to drive, and good size for both hwy and city traffic. Third row great for kids, easy access. Tail gate height is great for shorter adults to be able to reach.

360 degree backup camera is so cool. This car is basically a infinity JX35 but for much less money. Gas mileage is accurate after the first 1,500 miles I was getting 28 hwy and 19 city. I like this car more each day! Never owned a Nissan and wish I had owned on earlier.

POOR CVT DESIGN

LOOK ELSEWHERE !! CVT TRANSMISSIONS ARE STILL HAVING ISSUES!! I have had 2 2014 nissan pathfinders this year, Our platnum 4x4 has 7214 miles on it and nissan is replacing the transmission due to a "shudder" problem in the cvt. DO you research BEFORE you buy cvt nissan. i WILL NEVER buy another cvt transmisssion again!! our sales guy toni at midway nissan assured me that the transmission issue that the 2012 and 2013 models had has been corrected, WRONG!! too bad nissan cant figure out the issue :( othe little things have been replaced (rear diff axle seal (Leaking out of factory) a/c smells like mildew, Nissan says to turn the a/c on fresh air then wait till evaperator dries out then turn it on re circulate. and the Gas Mileage is POOR i get 16-18 in town and im supposed to get 19-25. and i dont have a lead foot either. BOTTOM LINE DO YOUR RESEARCH before buying into the nossan CVT!!

Do not buy a Nissan

by from Oklahoma on April 16, 2015

Worst car I have ever owned. Its been in the shop 4 times and has only 12,00 miles. It rattles and has more road noise than my 87 Chevy Truck. MPG is around 13-14, not at all what they claim.

I own a 2014 SV US based Model in Qatar only 12000 Kms driven in a year. Its a beautiful mid range SUV with excellent interior and good exterior and smooth drive. However, I noticed few things 1. The Black molding on the roof is coming out. The issue was there since beginning. When I reported the dealer said, its a design issue. 2. The front bumper both edges under the indicator have poor alignment, its a bit outwards. The dealer said the same for this. 3. Is the common issue on this forum: Shuddering on 40Kms speed and 1000 RPM since the very beginning. When I reported they replaced the CVT but with the new one, It happened again and they changed it again. So far, I have driven it around 100 kms.. didnt notice it happening again. Lets See... Otherwise... Its the best Family Size vehicle and I recommend it.

I love my Pathfinder except for the issues I had and currently have. To begin, the panoramic moon roof leaked. Needless to say there were water stains in the interior. I must admit, the dealer and Nissan handled this issue well. I'm very lucky to say I have not experienced transmission trouble. However, I do have a faulty passenger side air bag. I have read several others have this problem with their Pathfinders (and other models). Unfortunately, Nissan's standard responses seem to be "cannot duplicate the problem", "it works properly", "bring your car to another Nissan dealer to see if they can correct the problem". Hello...Nissan, this is a very big safety issue. Fix the problem!

Purchased this car new about a month ago. So far it has been great and driving is fun again. Here are the primary reasons we purchased: 1. Interior head room. I am 6'6". It has the most front head room, both on paper in and reality, though I will say some of the competitors were pretty good too even though on paper you wouldn't have thought so. Even the driver's backmost position is almost too far even for my height but 2nd row does not get impacted. 2. 4WD - we were looking for something with optional 4WD, not all the time AWD. 3. Ride - the ride is fantastic. The perfect blend of comfort and sport. We have gone on two out of state trips already and it makes long trips a breeze. 4. Sliding 2nd row - not a class exclusive feature but Nissan's implementation is about perfect. Getting into 3rd row is easier than a minivan. 5. MPG/horsepower - We so far have been getting about 23mpg combined. I am not the most aggressive driver but when you need it the power is there. Recently hauled 5 adults and two kids easily. Noticeable impact on power but as expected really. 6. CVT - This is possibly the controversial item both from perception and reliability. I don't miss the shifting personally and would say I now prefer it over an automatic. Too soon to speak about reliability but so far none of the shuddering and other problems some of reported with the CVT. Overall, we are very pleased so far.

I noticed a vibration when applying my brakes and took it back to the dealership with 1900 miles,with less than one month of owning the vehicle,was told that the rotors would have to be turned/shaved.I was not in anyway happy about this having to be done at such a early interval,i asked why they were worn at such a short term and did not receive a clear answer,then I asked why not replace rotors with new ones and I was told that was the first task to perform per Nissan specifications.I hope this is not the beginning of a recurring problem.Other wise I like the pathfinder.
