2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid Reviews

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-inch screen available
  • Push-button start
  • Tri-zone automatic air conditioning
  • Available heated steering wheel
  • Available navigation system, Bluetooth streaming audio
  • Available Bose premium audio
  • Available rear-seat entertainment system
  • Available remote start

Under the HoodA supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor combine to produce 250 horsepower. Power is sent to the wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:

  • Lithium-ion battery pack located under the third-row seat
  • Front- or all-wheel drive
  • 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped

SafetySafety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Three-row side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system
  • Traction control
  • Antilock brakes

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

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.

Powertrain

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.

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).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

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.
