The long-running Pathfinder has transformed from a truck-based workhorse into a softer, gentler, car-based SUV with three rows and seven seats. An enlarged interior and easier access moves it closer to a family-friendly minivan substitute, which could be a good thing.

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.

JOHN S., NY (2016 Nissan Pathfinder)

"This was a great purchase. Rides quiet and smooth, A/C is cold, nice and easy to control (triple zone). The Bose 13 speakers sound amazing. Bluetooth is great, can stream my iPhone music and phone calls are cyrstal clear. Voice recognition works great. But the best feature is the Rear Sonar with Around View Monitor. Makes parking and backing up a breeze. Alerts me of cars in my blind spots. What an amazing feature!"

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.
