First, I'm going to assume neither of you actually own the new pathfinder or have driven it more than a standard test drive. My wife and I test drove every SUV under 65k including the JX and the pathfinder compares quite closely to them all. Yes the Cadillacs, Denalis, and Buick enclave were slightly quieter, but they were not quite enough for me to drop an additional 15-20k. Buick's prices typically are 3-5k over the starting price of nissan for a reason. And for the record I drove past a blower the other day leaving the golf course and it was nearly as silent in my pf as on that video.
