Looking at purchasing a 2017+ PF, is there any issues I should know about or watch out for? Do any of you regret getting your PF?
Yes as mentioned, cheap easy fix yet annoying abit. I changed 2 in my 2013 PF, they're cheap plastic (like many new cars), and if pulled too hard the inside latch breaks.
Wow! I just started looking into the Acadia (at least, the 2017 and later Acadias that shrank a bit compared to the previous Acadia, and the unchanged Traverse and Enclave). Road tests were very positive about the Acadia, and they have pretty good towing capability, but I also pay attention to stories about repair history, which is one reason I'm on this forum to investigate the Pathfinder. I will have to check those Acadia forums. Thanks for the heads-up!...
@JayArras thanks, I have been skimming through the threads and it's really encouraging so far. I was curious if there's a lot of problems with the AWD that would make the FWD more desirable, and is there any common engine or tranny problems? I was browsing the GMC Acadia forums and those sound like nothing but trouble!
I am still on the fence about the Pathfinder, given Nissan's history with the CVT. I need a crossover at the very least to haul my rocket stuff and camping gear to the eastern Oregon desert; when I bought a used Avalon Hybrid a couple of years ago, I hadn't restarted my interest in rockets at that time, so packing everything I need requires me to be "creative." I go there six times a year, and may rent a camper for the couple of times a year when the temperature gets below freezing, or our five-day event in June when it would be nice to have a shower handy. I'd miss the fantastic mileage for a big car, but I'd get more flexibility when going to the desert, or even dragging all my hockey gear to the rink.I am in the same boat as Mosh, except I'm looking exclusively at used '19 or '20 models with low mileage. Obviously these haven't been on the road long enough to rack up a lot of miles, but generally speaking have the CVT transmissions been improved at all over the last few model years? I have read in this forum and elsewhere about all of the problems on the 13-16 model years.
I have driven the Explorer, Highlander, Enclave, Sante Fe and Traverse along with the PF this summer (I rent a lot for work). When narrowing down choices I keep coming back to the PF because you can get a lot of vehicle for the money and I want adaptive cruise control which is available on the SV trim. With most other manufacturers adaptive cruise is only available in the top trims, which I don't need or want to pay for.
