10K mile review
October 23, 2018
Also own 2015 Infiniti QX 60 for 30K miles. Given price difference, I'd own the Pathfinder Platinum. Can't put finger on it, but enjoy driving it more, guess if its going to be a truck, Pathfinder does better job of it. But, differences in interior plushness and thinner hood and door panels on Pathfinder definitely favor the QX60 (yes, the hood does flex at highway speeds on the Pathfinder).
The Nissan Tows well, I like the dual sunroof, good Bose stereo, though needs to be broken in. For the money, and I mean real out the door price, it is very hard to beat. Super comfortable seating, handling is neither sporty or cumbersome. The reviews regarding the liner under the roof rails are all true, I have to stuff mine back in every time I go through the car wash. But no rattles to date, and getting almost 22MPG with alot of city driving, which I find astounding. My M35X on premium fuel, never got close. I haven't noticed paint issues yet on this car, however I HAVE on the Infiniti, so I believe the paint concerns as well. I always wonder why reviewers rate certain dealerships well or poorly on a car review site, but I will say that the dealer didn't impress me as a general review as what to expect at a Nissan dealer, it wasn't an Infiniti experience for sure. Bottom line, though, I got a smoking deal on this vehicle. If it holds up as it has so far, I will be very pleased.
