I don't see Quest? The Quest is absolutely, positively hideous. This new Pathfinder is just sort of... surprisingly bland and conformist, considering how radical most of Nissan's newer designs have looked. Maybe they didn't want to risk it on a bread and butter vehicle like the Pathfinder.

The reality is most people are taking kids to school in these things, and the school is not at the top of Mt. Fuji. So I'm not surprised. The market of potential buyers who want a real, off-road capable, SUV (and all the ride/handling issues that come with it) is small. Having said that, were I in the market, I'd either get a real SUV or, if I wanted something car-like... a car. Imagine that.

I'm a sucker for the first-gen 1980s Pathfinder. I grew up in the 80s and all those boxy designs with sharp edges that people these days scoff at, look awesome to me. I wish I still had my "origami" Mk. I MR2.
