I came from the Mazda CX9 which developed transmission problem at ten thousands mile that will cost 6000 to repair. I trade my CX9 for 2017 pathfinder and hope the simpler CVT will last longer, my wife's 10 years old Murano still run great. The pathfinder's new powertrain is an excellent combination. It might not impress you at the test drive, especially I came from CX9, but give it couple weeks you will be amazed at the transforming of the CVT ( I suspect the CVT system will learn from your driving habit). 2017 Pathfinder is a car with the magnificent blend of comfort, efficient and utility. The cabin is cozy without exacerbate design, which is perfect for listening classical music and enjoying the ride. I observed an outstanding 29.7MPG at 1700 rmp while cruse on the highway. Pathfinder is easy to accommodate 4 golf bags behind the second row seats and we don't need to raise vice for conversation while heading golf course. I see nissan design this car as a daily use car, if you don't treat your SUV as nissan GTR, the pathfinder will be a great choice for you.
I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
