Winter fun with Nissan Pathfinder

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

Oh, Nissan.

Nissan, Nissan, Nissan.

You loaned me this beautifully-curvaceous, roomy, feature-packed 2013 Nissan Pathfinder—which my family promptly fell in love with—and now you’ve left me alone with only my memories and a few pictures of the experience.

Granted, you’ve also left me with a deep aching urge to make the all-new Nissan Pathfinder our next family vehicle, so on that note. Bravo!

Keep reading to learn more about the fun my family had with the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, and find out how you can win a prize pack worth $190!

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

When the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder first arrived at my home for our 1-week loan, I opened the doors to find lots of goodies inside (including sleds for the kids!) to make our week even more fun. They even provided some warm hats for our entire family, as you can see, Kara was thrilled with hers.

The first thing we did?

We packed up the Pathfinder, then drove over the river and through the woods (it’s really sort of like that) to the kids’ Grandmother’s house! With lots of freshly fallen snow, it was a perfect day for a snowball fight.

One of the things I love most about the Nissan Pathfinder is how incredibly roomy it is.

It’s almost deceiving when you look at the vehicle from the outside, because the design is so sleek and compact, but a wow actually escaped my lips when I got behind the wheel for the first time and took note of the head room, and the room for the kids in the back.

I’m used to driving a bigger (and bulkier) SUV, and was amazed to find that the Nissan Pathfinder actually gives my family the same amount of leg room and storage in the back, yet, I don’t feel like I’m mounting a horse when I slide into the Pathfinder. Huge points there.

The Nissan Pathfinder is just pretty. I hate to get wrapped up in the book’s cover, but, the book has a nice cover, y’all.

From the wide chrome grille and large aerodynamic headlights, to the recessed front windshield wipers,to the enormous Dual Panorama Moonroof, the Pathfinder is gorgeous.

The interior? Equally lovely. In fact, there were so many details inside the car that I fell in love with. Hello—heated seats and steering wheel. Sigh. I am ruined for other cars now.

I was totally blown away by the class-exclusive Around View™ Monitor. In the photo below, you can see that not only are you able to see what’s behind the vehicle when you’re backing up, but you can see ALL AROUND the Pathfinder as well.

This little jewel of technology was new to me!

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

Speaking of family adventures and travel, I have to say that the Nissan Pathfinder completely spoiled Evan. The iPod® integration and tri-zone entertainment system with 2nd row head restraint-mounted DVD display screens made his travel experiences only about a million times more enjoyable.

Don’t take this the wrong way, because I love conversing with my 3-year-old, but to be able to sit behind the wheel of a car and drive, without being asked fifty-million random questions on the way (thanks to Evan being fully entertained with a DVD) was priceless. PRICELESS I tell you!

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

His direct quote, “Mom… I love this car.”

Me too, buddy. Me too.

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

My husband and I decided to take Evan on a special little mini-excursion, which included a trip to Columbus to see Discover the Dinosaurs.

Evan watched  Happy Feet on the trip, and I’m pretty sure that the drive was nearly as much fun as the dinosaur exhibit!

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

Because I live in a rural area with lots of curves and hills, it’s pretty easy for me to tell if I like the way a car drives. The Nissan Pathfinder provide a smooth but powerful drive, and I love the way it hugged the road. All-wheel drive is also an absolute necessity when you live in a rural area of Ohio like I do.

I can tell you that the Nissan Pathfinder was able to drive out of my steep and snowy driveway with no problem whatsoever! With All-Mode 4x4i, you have a system that’s capable on-road and off, and prepared to handle all types of weather.

In fact, the driving feels so nice and smooth that I felt like I was driving a tank when I went back to our current SUV. I definitely miss the comfort, style, and power of the Nissan Pathfinder.

Nissan Pathfinder #PathfinderAdventures

We had such a blast driving the new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder!

Winter Adventure Prize Pack Giveaway

Nissan has generously offered to give one Dear Crissy reader a prize pack that includes 2 travel mugs, hot chocolate, a blanket and a $100 gift card (total value: $190). Giveaway open to US residents 18 years and older. Good luck!

Update Giveaway has ended.

Nissan provided me with a 1-week vehicle loan, $250 gift card, and winter necessities to facilitate my review. Opinions are my own.

    Since my kids are grown and live across the country, the most fun thing we do is simply spend time together. I have the most beautiful daughters in the world, and am so proud of the women they’re becoming. We don’t need to go to theme parks or attractions, even though I live in Central Florida. It’s the quality time that’s the best.

    Santa brought tickets to a local ski resort for an afternoon of snow tubing. The ancient chair lift was terrifying!! None of my 4 kids knew how to use one, so I saddled my husband with our afraid-of-heights 11-year-old-daughter, put my youngest (5 years old) with me, and that left my 18-year-old to manage my 8-year-old. And the kids did awesome! We had an amazing time!

    This winter was wonderful for the town-created skating pond! It is flooded by the fire department, and open late each day. The boys found an old hockey net, which they left at the pond (a smart move once it froze into the rink!) and there were many impromptu hockey games with whomever showed up! I was glad for my heated seats and four-wheel drive, as we trudged up to the pond and back again, I’ll tell you!
