Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

You are talking about all SUV's? Pathfinder, Rouge and Murano?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

yes, leaning towards Pathfinder at the moment

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Well let me start with saying this. All car manufactures all have their own little quirks. So keep that in mind.

What year Pathfinder were you thinking about? Brand New? Used?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

very early model. not convinced I am worthy of brand new (yet).

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

So like what years are you talking about? 2012 and older?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

I'm thinking 2011 or newer

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

2010 to 2012 is the older body style. These are great trucks. I like them better than the new designed 2013 Pathfinder.

The 2010 to 2012 Pathfinders are great trucks. Don't see to many things go bad on them. Most of the stuff are mainly maintenance. Don't really see any issues. But when you get into the 2013's, now you are dealing with a CVT transmission which has had some issues. Meter assembly issues, Roof rail strips and more. I just can' t think of them all.

So if you were going to look into a Pathfinder, 2010 to 2012 is what I would recommend.

Do you have any more questions on this?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
