After owning my 2012 R51 Pathfinder for just about a year I must say I really love this truck! I have owned may SUV's over the years my last one being a 2006 Toyota 4Runner that served me quite well for just under 200,000 miles. I must say I prefer to drive my (12) Pathy the seating position is much better and the handling (with air bags installed) is about the same that is to say just fine. The R51 has lots of room I often use the back for work I sell and deliver office equipment and I can get a real good size copier machine in the back quite a bit larger then I could in my 4Runner. I like the V6 power seems just a little quicker then my 4Runner was. The control layout and dash layout is perfect or I think so anyway. I hope it pulls my 5,000 lb (loaded) camper as well as my 4Runner did. Other then that this is one fine truck! Yes it has its quirks but every SUV I have had had some quirks. Frankly I wish Nissan never got rid of the R51 and just updated the styling not that the style of the truck is bad frankly I love the look. Anyway excuse my rant just thought I would voice my opinion.
