2009 Nissan Pathfinder Reviews
I bought a 2010 Nissan Pathfinder. It's been great. I bought it in Florida and drove it to Arizona and towed a 6x12 U-haul trailer filled we stuff. It towed it flawlessly. That 4.0l engine has a lot of power and still delivers pretty good gas mileage. It's firm suspension give it good stability on the road and off road. Love it!! The only thing I wish was for a little more second row leg room... That's it!!
