Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

Following on the Pathfinder's redesign last year, Nissan has a new hybrid version of the seven-seat crossover for the 2014 model year. The Pathfinder Hybrid's drivetrain consists of a supercharged four-cylinder, electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, and Nissan cites fuel economy of 25/27 mpg city/highway. It competes with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid and hits dealerships in late summer 2013.

ExteriorThe Pathfinder Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gas-only sibling. Look closely and you'll notice that the hybrid version has unique LED taillights and some badges on the front doors and liftgate, but otherwise it carries forward the Pathfinder's now-familiar design cues. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 18-inch alloy wheels; 20-inch wheels available
  • Chrome treatments including the grille and door handles
  • Power-operated side mirrors; available heated mirrors
  • Available fog lights
  • Available dual-pane panoramic moonroof
  • Available power liftgate with position memory

Interior The design of the Pathfinder Hybrid's interior mirrors the regular model. To achieve its seven-occupant capacity it has two front bucket seats, a three-person second-row bench seat and a two-person third row. Both the second and third rows recline, and the second-row seat slides too. Interior features include:

  • Power-operated driver's seat; available leather upholstery and heated and cooled front seats
  • Information screen measures 7 inches; 8-in...

We love our Pathfinder

by xgeoff from bothell, wa on July 30, 2018

So we do love our Pathfinder, but there are some caveats to be aware of. First off, on the positive, the car gets good gas mileage. We regularly get about 23MPG. What is weird is that the mileage for ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
