Are You the One? Nissan Pathfinder my vote for official car of Ice Storm

Posted on January 9th,

One year and six months ago, I the love of my life when my 1996 Saturn passed on. of jumping into another I opted to spend a year and take my time choosing a new vehicle. In the months ahead, be reviewing the cars that are to fill the big shoes my Saturn behind.

So much in a relationship on timing. It could be the right at the wrong time, the wrong at the wrong time or it could be the Pathfinder landing in your lap on the eve of Ice 2013.

As was the case with me.

I had booked my with the 2014 Pathfinder many weeks in advance of brutal weather event, when we were all wearing shoes and fully expecting the green Christmas.

I was looking to my rendezvous, but I can t say I had butterflies. I am gradually that I m an SUV person, but the Pathfinder t really on my radar as a sexy It s a solid, reliable, nice-looking if you like crossovers, but it doesn t that raw edge I look for in a (because some people learn).

However. There s something this vehicle that you instantly at ease.

It has that nice-guy aura, with all the traits that bode for a cosy future, such as a steering wheel, heated and panoramic moonroof.  It s elegant being excessive. It s roomy being ridiculous.

It’s without being sappy.

It s nice, is what it is.

And the pleasant continue as you get to know it better. it s got tons of cargo space and seven: that ll come in Hey, it s got a trailer hitch and the plug for the trailer lights: how Aw, heated side mirrors? s so sweet of you!

Wait, are those knobs and on your console instead of all touch me nonsense? Omigosh. I I I m starting to like you as more a friend.

So the Pathfinder and I were along swimmingly, absent notwithstanding, when the ice storm hit a frozen fist.

I m sure I don t to recount the horror that turned out to be, but let me just say that my who lives about 20 minutes and a few roads away from me, was hit hard.

When I couldn t her by phone, I turned to my new buddy and Guess what, Pathfinder? We re icebogging.

We hit the messy, snow-clogged backroads in the of night, and by the time I pulled up in of Mom s house, my heart was in my throat.  trees lay everywhere, traumatized lines were draped houses that were as pitch.

Mom was aghast when she the door (wearing her winter and boots). You shouldn t have it on these treacherous roads! she

I motioned to my trusty steed. It was I said. I ve got this big ol truck.

And it was It had felt like nothing. I had put it in 4X4 and once felt nervous. The Pathfinder may look like a but it handles like a truck in all the ways.

In the four days followed, I made many back and forth on those roads, including one to bring Mom to it out at my house, and the Pathfinder was rock-solid step of the way. It handled a champ on all road surfaces — the hiccup being a tendency to out of 4X4 and into 2WD — and thanks to its hybrid it was extremely easy on gas.

All in all, it had found a special in my heart.

I never thought I d buying a truck solely on the of its being amazing in ice storms, but I now. And let me tell you, the Pathfinder Hybrid would be at the top of list.
