2009 Pathfinder or 2009 Traverse?
Flip a coin?
Based on Consumer Reports info, given the choice and the fact that you're looking at the 2009 model year...I'd go with the Pathfinder. 2009 Traverse was NOT a good year for that SUV. There were Major Engine and Fuel System problems, so probably best to avoid. 2010 and above Traverse is rated better though.
