This version of the Pathfinder was a relatively old SUV, but it does offer a third-row seat. Strengths include a versatile interior and a V6 engine that's stronger than some competitors' V8s. Independent rear suspension contributes to responsive handling, but the Pathfinder rides stiffly. Second- and third-row seats are tight for adults.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

“the 2008 Pathfinder is still one of the best looking SUV's. In addition, the cargo area with its completely flat trunk floor (with second and third rows down) is amazingly large (and practical since it is completely flat).”

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
