2019 Nissan Pathfinder review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

The Pathfinder is a roomy SUV with seating for seven in three rows. All models come with a 284-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that teams with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

What’s New on the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

Rear parking sensors and two USB type-C ports are now standard, and SV trim levels add adaptive cruise control and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. SL and Platinum models gain LED headlights.

What Features in the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder Are Most Important?

All models have standard automatic emergency braking, and all but the base S trim now have blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. SL and Platinum models feature a 360-degree camera system. Nissan also gives shoppers the choice of front- or all-wheel drive on all versions, which also have a roomy, easily accessible third row.

Should I Buy the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

Despite several strong points, the Pathfinder competes with a flock of three-row SUVs that offer as much or more in the way of features. The Pathfinder also suffers from a loud engine and a rough ride that's unrefined compared with other SUVs. Moreover, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto still aren’t available.

Disappointed Pathfinder Owner

Our car is only a 2019 and I have had to tow it once because a false sensor was causing it not to start, I got a flat tire on the road because the tire sensor didn’t pop on until the tire was flat and now I have an issue with the rear differential coupling device which is not covered because I have $64,000 miles so just over the 60,000 mile mark and it will cost $2,300 to fix. I thought Nisdon’s were reliable which is why we bought this car and brand. I’m going back to Toyota where I can drive my car for 200,000 miles without any major issues.

I Love My Pathfinder

I bought my Pathfinder Nov. 2019, I've had no problem with the way the truck runs, smooth ride, the only problem I've is my backup camera doesn't always work, it's just a black screen, so I just judge my back my the sensor beeps. That's my only problem so it get a thumbs up from me.

2019 Pathfinder SL Rock Creek Edition “Rocks”

I’ve had the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder SL Rock Creek Special Edition since October 2019 and I’ve loved it since the day I bought it. The Rock Creek Edition’s design is unique, attractive, and allot of bang for my buck. It is perfectly powered, and has better tow capacity than the Explorer, Pilot, and almost every other vehicle in this class I compared. -Only complaints: No apple Carplay navigation is useless without a Sirius subscription and having map data chip updated. -Leg room is what you expect from a truck tight
