    Nice Looking "suv" And Not The Crossover/minivan Look — Overall this is a great SUV. I wanted the 2012 since the 2013 changed bodystyles to the crossover and I wasn't impressed with its look so I took advantage of the huge rebates and price markdowns on the 2012 and got it on the last day of the year for almost half the price it would have been. The only complaint I have thus far is the gas mileage isn't very good, averaging 13-15 in the city and only 17-18 on the highway. Also this wouldn't be a good vehicle for adult children, go with the Armada. The second row leg room is lacking but all my children are 8 and under so it isn't an issue for me. If you want sunroof and navigation you'll have to step up to the LE but if that isn't important to you save your money and get the silver edition. It's perfect for our family. I traded in my tacoma so the gas mileage isn't any better or worse as far as that goes. Overall I am happy with my Pathfinder.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nice SUV look.  Pretty powerful for V6 and very comfortable interior

    Cons: Gas Mileage and small fuel capacity
