They make them to look appealing to soccer moms I guess. The 160mph speedometer is completely stupid; but I've known a lot of people that think the top speed is whatever the speedometer goes up to. Considering the governor kicks in around 120; why even put the extra 40mph on the gauge.

heh, go ahead and hate but we actually picked one of these up for my wife. (went to the dealership to use a $15 groupon oil change and walked out with a 35k car ) she wanted the jx35 but there was no way i was throwin 50-60k down for a car payment right now.

i dont know, i have mixed feelings about it, LOVE the seats, decent pickup, tons of room, decent gas mileage. i think the front actually looks pretty sharp. rides way better than my frontier and for long trips id much rather take this kick back and throw the cruise on.

still kinda on the fence about the cvt tranny, it is now a moms car, but that was obviously the market they were going for.

but when it all comes down to it, you know the saying......

happy wife=happy life

The front looks decent minus the plastic chrome but its become a typical crossover with no soul.
I do like these wheels though..

I test drove it. it drives nice and has a nice list of features for the price. The 4 cameras are cool, but a bit overkill. I liked it, but thought it looked like a jellybean.

Jellybeans are awesome as a snackfood. but not a vehicle.

Went from a rugged suv to a soccer mom minivan/car with a lift. They might as well lower it too; so grandmas can easily enter and exit the vehicle. For 35K I'd rather go get a used Porsche Cayenne.

I hate it. They should have ditched the pathfinder name when they made this. No one will ever take this on a path ever like the older pathies
