When we decided to buy a car for our large family we were thinking about a minivan. But then we found Nissan Pathfinder with seven seats. We loved to have a whole family together plus to have SUV comfort.
Traded my 2013 Pathfinder at 66,000 miles for new 2018 model. Prior to purchase of my 2013 model, I test drove Pilot, Highlander, Traverse, Mazda CX-5, Cherokee and Sorrento. Pathfinder was best value for ride, room and overall performance for this class SUV.
Very easy to get to 3rd row seats, with just as much room as the others (ignore experts’ comment about the room. 3rd row seats are always for small kids for this class vehicle).
Was pleased with my first Pathfinder; even more pleased with second Pathfinder.
My 3rd vehicle with CVT; love that smooth "no-shift" transmission.
Great SUV. However, two main problems to date at 48,000 and at 50,000 miles:
1) Hot/cold temperature extremes cause multiple small cracks (20) when headlights on in 20 degree temps. 48,000 and 50,000. One small became one large. No manufacturer recall. $540 each.
2) Cooling fan fails at 50,000. Known problem. No manufacturer recall. $850.
My car was serviced promptly and all work reviewed in detail. They also showed me the quiet working area to wait while I could work on my laptop during service and with complimentary coffee! Really appreciated!
It drives great.

Great car with plenty of legroom, spacious and comfy. Very pleased with it so far and my family loves this car. Its my second Nissan car.
After 6 Nissans I have to say this one one of the better experiences if not the best.
Excellent SUV for my family

This car is very comfortable, spacious, robust with plenty of safety features..
We loved the 2 moon roofs, the third row for my 7yo. The Bose System is amazing..and driving it feels very classy on the road and reliable.
The engine is strong a quite!
We loved the heated seats front and second row, we wished if third row was also heated.
Navi System is easy and the infotainment System is very advanced. All is all, we found the car we want and we are happy with it :)
Upon arrival until pick up, I was treated like I was only customer there! igot One on one care! Mgr even walked me to my car

Ongoing issues. Lots. Under 3000km lost the heater, computer, navigation, and the transmission. Around the 9000 km mark now. Nissan Canada advised me they "Cannot do anything because each dealer is independent ". UNBELIEVABLE. Thanks for nothing
Take the money and run. 6 Dec, lost the audio, stereo, heater, centre console again today. Stay away from Timmins Nissan.
Santiago and Cody did a great job, but we couldn't make a deal. Competitive vehicle had higher trim level, leather seating, lower miles, and good tires at only $200 difference.
Love my Pathfinder

This car is a pleasure to drive. It handles very well, the 360 view cameras are hands down one of the best features. I wish it has speakers in the 3rd row. Also, updating the navigation system is not free.
I usually despise the entire process of buying a car! The day before we went to Toyota & the salesman drove us crazy with his non stop persistence. Even when we stated they didn't have what we were looking for, he kept getting us to wait and wait and wait! Finally, exasperated my husband left while I hid in the car because I knew it was going to be a hard sell. I'd rather lose a toe than buy a car like that! The next day we went to Galloway Direct. Rich Festa, the salesman was as pleasant as he could be. No hard sell, no harassing, no long horrible wait. Also, the closing agent was extremely nice. The overall experience was a nice surprise! We felt like we got a good fair deal and got a great used 2011 Ford Edge with low miles! It was pristine. We got an extended warranty and free oil changes for 2 years! The facility was pleasant with some great antique Fords inside. I would absolutely recommend them for a great experience!

The Pathfinder has a very smooth ride and very quiet. Ours is a Platinum, so it has all the bells and whistles. Lots of cargo room with the 3rd seat folded. The memory settings for two are a favorite feature. We each set the seat, steering wheel, and outside mirrors to suit us and it will automatically reset when we use our individual key fobs or the buttons inside. Only minor complaints are the tiny seat heater knobs. They are impossible to read in the daytime. And the button to change radio settings is too easy to hit by accident in normal driving. Other than those little things, the interior is very nice.
Performance is adequate., it is a big vehicle. I do wish it had a regular transmission as the CTV seems to rod some power. Highway mileage is excellent returning 28+ MPG. In town has been in the low 20's. This is as good or a little better than the Murano we had previously. That car gave us over 10 tears of trouble-free service.
Kevin worked extremely hard to get me the price I was looking for. The car was ready as promised and all the options were as specified. Kevin had the car ready on time, took the time to review all the options with me, set up my iPhone and Called me that very afternoon to make sure everything was OK. I wouldn???t hesitate to use Kevin again for another vehicle purchase or lease.
We are very satisfied with the car.

We immediately liked the car when we went to the dealership. After two years of driving it we have noted some issues that could be improved upon. Many of the controls (seat heating and cooling), steering wheel heating controls are difficult to see-is it on or off?? I realize that space is at a minimum for these controls but some upgrades could be made. We also love the head lights although we are frequently flashed by oncoming drivers because they must be too bright or too high. Curious if any other owners have experienced this issue. On a recent recall, the dealer loaned us an Altima and we found the headlights to be just the opposite--needed more light.
From the inside out, love this car. Love the quality and the space. The style and features are perfect. The third row is spacious and comfortable. Zero complaints so far!
