Overall:

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: makes you feel great driving it!

Cons: no factory dvd, but thats what books are for!

Great Suv — The handling of this vehicle for its size is amazing. It handles itself great on U turns. Just acquired Pathfinder and was just concerned with AC fan issues. Appearance and style is the max. Fun for long road trips. Gas depends on fuel prices !

Pros: Handles on and off road like a Gem

Cons: Too many A/C controls

Overall:

Would Love To Drive This Pf For The Next 280k Miles, Family Just Out Grew It... — The PF is a well thought out, properly engineered machine. There is not a lot in the way of frills here, but there is plenty of strength and reliability to go around. It has a very attractive body, the interior is surprisingly roomy and convenient (ignoring the third row), it has a good deal of power for a 4.0L V6. It can get through unexpected weather or terrain but would not be the ideal off-roader. Gas milage is ok...I truly believe that there is a lot of over emphasis on milage. Many people are paying higher prices for less reliable, less capable vehicles that will need replacement much sooner. Here is a 17mpg 2005 PF (yes lame milage rating). But it will run forever with minimal maintenance cost. Certainly past 300,000 if proper maintenance is continued.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Basically it's an SUV with the space to compete with larger SUVs that seat 7-8 but much easier to drive in the city or park in smaller spots. The interior is easy to configure between massive cargo space and 3 rows of seats.

Cons: The compact size (built on a small track chassis) results in having to pick between the full seating capacity and large cargo space. With the third row down there is a sizable trunk. But with the third row up, there is only about 1 foot between the gate and the seat. The gas milage leaves quite a bit to be desired. About 17mpg avg. Milage though, is the price you pay for having a truly reliable engine.
