First off, more carlike choices such as the Ford Edge, Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse, or Nissan's own Murano are all better choices than the 2010 Pathfinder if you don't plan to tow or haul regularly.
The Toyota 4Runner has been completely redesigned for 2010, and it ends up feeling better appointed inside and offers a bit more comfort.
At the end of the day, each of these vehicles has poor fuel economy and a less-than-ideal ride.
