 2013 Nissan Pathfinder

Sutherlin Nissan of Orlando once again gave me an opportunity to review one of their incredible vehicles.  This being my 4th review, I feel like a total brand ambassador, as I love each car as much (maybe even a little more) than the one before.  This time I got to endure the luxury of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder.  I had to wait a bit to have this opportunity, for quite frankly, they have a tough time keeping them in stock.  After driving the one I am sharing with you, I can easily see why.

I love the way the seats fold up.  This gives you easily the best access to the back seat with the bottom seats folding up and then sliding forward, rather than flipping the entire seat forward.  Brilliant!

Serious trunk room.  Whether you are carrying a few bags or have some large items to get around, this space can accommodate any type of cargo.

Check out these awesome compartments.  Perfect for extra room or privacy.  I found these compartments came in handy when I had some groceries and a car load of kids.  I was able to put their stuff in the compartments and save my bread and eggs.

With eight cup holders and six bottle pockets in various parts of the interior, every occupant can be fully hydrated!  The high tech display gives you a perfectly clear view of the reverse camera, as well as displaying the XM Satellite Radio.  With dual air, as well as rear air control, all passengers can adjust the temperature to their liking.   And on those chilly days, both front and back seats have seat warmers available.
