I think you meant to say Dealer installed. Factory installed means they were shipped from the plant with them on it. You mentioned a while ago that you had them installed at the dealership.

Current

15 Focus ST Oxford White

PAST
14 PF Platinum Prem Dark Slate/Charcoal Int
13 Sentra SR
13 PF S
12 Sentra SR
04 350Z touring
02 Xterra

88 300 ZX
86 Maxima (1st car)

I have '13 PF with less than 15K miles; I haven't noticed the 'judder' either, thankfully. Our paint job seems to be fine. I agree about the 3rd row seat - pretty useless except for small kids - my 2 10 yr-olds were not happy riding very far back there 2 yrs ago & I certainly wouldn't have both of them there now! One can sit a bit sideways, but 2 is just a bad idea! We've had the passenger front seat & sensor replaced because the airbag sensor didn't always detect someone. Looks like we'll be taking it in again for the same thing...

How is the rear visibility in your model? We have taken the 2nd row headrests off so we can see properly out the rear window, and the 3rd row is folded down always for more storage, which also greatly improves visibility. We're not thrilled with the size of the rather large side view mirrors either as they block low views of the street/curb when turning. Apparently the PF is not the only vehicle this size with the same issues - a friend has a similar-sized Dodge SUV with similar issues.

The Visibility should be the same as yours. The 2013 model year was the first year of this style. Taking out the head rests on the 2nd row isn't a bad idea at all especially if no one is using that seating often. Mine gets used maybe once a week or so. I think I'm gonna take mine out as well.
I don't have any issues with the side mirrors at all. They do their job and don't get in my way.

We've actually had 8 adults in our Pathfinder on occasion when we're camping with our group and our vehicle seems to be the only one available that can accommodate everybody. While I agree that the 3rd row space is "cozy", there have not been any complaints for our short jaunts. The issue has been more trying to get out from there than actually sitting in the space.
