Nissan Pathfinder - What the Auto Press Says

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder ranks 21 out of 23 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 41 published reviews and test drives of the Nissan Pathfinder, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

First introduced in 1986, the long-running Nissan Pathfinder is a good choice for those who want a versatile cabin and decent off-road capabilities. However, this SUV lags behind competitors in on-pavement handling and interior refinement, so it may not work as a daily driver or family hauler.

Unless buyers spend most of their time off road, the Nissan Pathfinder may be a poor choice. And even as an off-roader, it's bested by many of its competitors, including the Toyota FJ Cruiser and Nissan's own Xterra. Its overwhelming number of cargo and seating configurations is a strength. However, though its seven-seat capacity makes it tempting as a family vehicle, the second and third rows are cramped.

"Riding the same fully boxed frame as the full-size Armada SUV, the Pathfinder is exceptionally rugged, and the addition of a V-8 option last year gives it strong performance and towing capability," says Car and Driver. "Independent suspension makes for good road manners, and there's seating for seven." The Pathfinder is priced around the middle of its class, but its fuel economy falls closer to the bottom (though it's about average when compared to other off-road SUVs).

Other SUVs to Consider

Buyers who want a rugged SUV but need more comfortable accommodations should consider the Toyota 4Runner and Ford Explorer. The least expensive off-road SUV, the Jeep Patriot, costs less than $20K and boasts much better fuel economy than the Nissan Pathfinder.

New features for this year include a standard moonroof on the LE V6 model, a standard navigation system on the LE V8, and simplified exterior and interior color combinations. If you like the Pathfinder, be sure to check out this month's Nissan Deals.

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder is available in several trims: the base S FE+, S, SE, LE V6 and LE V8. Since the 2010 model is nearly identical to the 2009, this review uses research from both model years.

  • "For everyday driving ease and fuel economy, this truck-type SUV trails such crossover rivals as the GMC Acadia and Nissan's own Murano. Only the most expensive versions offer the convenience of 4-wheel drive that can be left engaged on dry pavement." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The...Nissan Pathfinder plays the role of a tough, rugged cowboy ready for the range. Yet, when negotiating city streets, the Pathfinder is a tame tiger offering many amenities to please the in-town crowd." --
  • "Never having been much of a fan of the $40,000 SUV weighing nearly 5,000 pounds, I didn't find a lot enticing about this vehicle. It did go well in snow, with the drive-mode selector in 'auto.' The rearview camera, the heated steering wheel and the navigation system all proved useful enough at various times, but I could live without any of it and not miss a thing." -- AutoWeek
  • "The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder can tame the wilderness with its off-road skill, but it's not as adept in the concrete jungle. Consumers just wanting a comfortable seven-passenger midsize SUV will be better served by a large crossover." -- Edmunds  

Pathfinder Performance - 7.5 (Good)

Pathfinder Exterior - 6.9 (Mediocre)

The 2010 Pathfinder's look receives mixed reviews. calls it "a truck in truck's clothing, sharing the blocky, chiseled styling of the Xterra, but even more closely resembling the chrome-grilled Titan and Frontier pickups." Read More

Pathfinder Interior - 7.4 (Good)

The 2010 Pathfinder's seven-seat interior is versatile and even somewhat upscale. Reviewers appreciate the standard third-row seat, but note that both the second and third rows can be cramped. "Inside the Nissan Pathfinder, occupants will find an attractive cabin with excellent ergonomics," says -- Edmunds. Read More

Pathfinder Safety - 9.2 (Excellent)

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder does relatively well in federal government crash tests, but receives a three-star rollover score -- when many competitors receive four stars.  Read More

Pathfinder Reliability - 5.0 (Mediocre)

Really, quality video.
Now my choice is to buy one Nissan 4*4 model for my family. But I want such a used model.

Love how the these writers try to compare apples and oranges. The government may claim crossovers as suv's, but they're nothing more than a car/minivan configuration puffed out to look like an suv. Crossovers are not on the same plain as a true suv and shouldn't be compared equally. I own a 2010 Pathfinder, and its a fine suv (no resemblance to a crossover) that rides smooth, handles well, and have no qualms about taking it offroad to the middle of nowhere. I guess these writers think that if it has a boxed frame it is such a sin - basically neanderthal technology and is too brutish. These writers probably have never driven older suvs/4x4's like Ford Bronco's, Chevy Blazer's, Jeep Wagoneer's and so on. Compared to these the Pathfinder is a huge improvement in ride, handling, comfort, and refinement, but retains the toughness and offroad capabilities given a true suv. If the writers on this haven't driven other REAL SUV'S(not crossover's) then they have no business writing this crap to begin with.
