Pros

Fun for an SUV, handled everything we've thrown at it so far

Cons

Just the year due to the recalls, but they are easily fixed

I Love It But Wish It Were Slightly Bigger On The Inside — Performance- acceleration is good, braking works well, handling is good for an SUV Build Quality-there have been a couple recalls on it but other than that not bad Appearance-it keeps looking smaller and smaller every day haha Cost of Ownership-not the best gas mileage, maintenance is not a problem Fun Factor-Once you slam the pedal down once its really fun

Perfect! — The best SUV that I have had yet! It has a smooth ride for a large SUV and makes you feel great driving it! I paid the same for a Grand Cherokee in the past and it doesnt even compare to my new Pathfinder. What great quality.

Awesome Suv — This is a very good SUV. For a used car, it's actually pretty good. It runs good, it's good on gas, and it's really smooth. I also love that it has a lot of pep So it can run. I Love it. It's a great SUV and it performs well.
