Loved It Enough To Buy Another — The pathfinder LE provides interior luxury and features combined with off-road capability for thousands less than the competition. I think the interior looks better than the 4 runner. I've owned two from 2009-2015 and have had no issues with either. One was a 2005 and the current one is a 2010. I have changed the oil, replaced brakes and battery on the '05 and changed oil on the '10. No problems at all. Other people have had issues with the coolant leaking into the radiator so that's something to be aware of. Nissan has extended the warranty for certain model years. For example, my 2010 pathfinder LE has 41K mi and is warrantied up to 8 years/80K (here is the link) http://www.nissanassist.com/web/Radiator/faqs.php?menu=22 I researched vehicles forever trying to find the best value in a 7 passenger vehicle with good looks and off-road capability. The two best (IMO) are the Nissan Pathfinder and the Land Rover LR3. The pathfinder is my wife's and I'm now looking for an LR3.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Best balance between off-road capability and family transport.  LE provides a lot of luxury with rugged exterior looks.

Cons: Third row seats are a little cramped

Good Value For What You Buy, Not Ideal For City Driving — Purchased this 2 years ago, put about 20k miles on it, including many road trips (Pittsburgh to Florida, Virginia, Niagara Falls New York, Washington DC...). Used to pull my dirtbike on a trailer and a rail, no issues. I would say the biggest disappointment is the gas mileage...Highway is 18.4 at best, and in town can dip into the 11's...horrible. On the plus side, it's been very reliable, stops very well, packs a ton of stuff (3rd row down or up), and has a nice sound system.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tons of room, tows a 5x8 trailer with ease, can hold 7 people (including some little kids) in comfort, roof rack

Cons: horrible handling in choppy corners, missing a sixth gear, can't stream music through bluetooth, noisy engine, 4x4 makes tight steering difficult

I Just Love The Look Of The Pathfinder And Love Driving It — I had a bad experience with the dealer who sold it to me, otherwise, had owned a 2005 pathfinder that I gave to my son and his new family - and we both love them - the cargo area is great - back seats are good for kids - love that the 2010 has a backseat air conditioner - which is much needed in Texas in summer

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: High seat - feels like driving a truck - can put all of the seats down so can haul a lot if you're a home depot do-it-yourselfer like I am

Cons: a little bit of a rough ride -

Love It — I can haul a ton of stuff around, it has great pickup and go. We mainly use it as our long trip car for its great feel when driving. A little hard to maneuver into small parking stalls, but great for traveling.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great for hauling things, I've fit some amazing things in the cargo area!

Cons: A Little hard to maneuver.

2010 Nissan Pathfinder LE V6 Review

The sturdier feel of the Pathfinder ride gives me confidence in rugged terrain. Compared to other SUVs Ive owned, I find it not as comfortable and more tiring on longer trips. However its responsiveness and handling is well suited for Sports activities, hauling and city like driving.

Love the vehicle but the design needs a refresh and for a one year old car 50000 miles is a lot. Read More

Smooth drive, steering wheel feels “small” though and I wasn’t hip on how the seat comes forward to get to the third row. Not convenient for moms who have kids that go in the back seat daily. If the ... Read More
