Benefits of Driving a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Sport Utility Crossover

The Pathfinder remains a very good value for the money. Between its seating capacity and fuel economy the Pathfinder makes a good argument for its value. However Nissan have even managed to bring the price down from last year. While previous Pathfinders competed with truck like SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner, the 2013 Pathfinder aims instead to compete more closely with crossover vehicles such as the Toyota Highlander, bringing more space and refinement to the market at a slight cost to seldom used off-road capabilities.

What's new for 2013?

The Pathfinder is all new for 2013, featuring an attractive and modern redesign, seating for seven and a CVT gearbox. 2013's sheetmetal is all new and the aerodynamic shape helps the Pathfinder achieve good mileage numbers for such a large vehicle. With a bigger interior than last year's model, the new Pathfinder becomes less like a truck and more like a comfortable crossover.

Model Strengths

  • Good fuel economy
  • spacious interior
  • 5000lb towing capacity
  • third row seating
  • competitive pricing

Model Review

The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is powered by a 3.5L engine making 260hp. Though the new engine is smaller than the one it replaces, it makes nearly the same horsepower and gets significantly better fuel economy. The 2013 Pathfinder is rated at 26 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city for 2-wheel-drive models, while 4-wheel-drive vehicles are rated only 1-mpg worse in both environments. Part of this economy is attributable to Nissan's standard continuously variable (CVT) transmission which, unlike traditional units has an infinite number of gear ratios and is consequently always able find the best compromise between economy and power.

Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

7-year/100,000 mile limited warranty. Only Nissan models less than 6 years old and under 80,000 miles qualify for the Nissan Certified Pre-Owned program. The CARFAX Vehicle History Report ensures your vehicle has a clean title history.
Age/Mileage Eligibility 6 model years or newer & less than 80,000 miles.
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 150+ point comprehensive Certified Pre-Owned Inspection and reconditioning. Inspection includes OEM service bulletins and recalls, diagnostic trouble codes, powertrain/chassis, body frame, road test, interior and body exterior.
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes for the duration of the 7 year/100,000 mile limited warranty from the original in-service date of the vehicle.
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty No/Yes if wrap coverage is purchased at the time of sale
Warranty Deductible $50 per claim
