Are you in Kitchener-Waterloo looking for a premium used 7-seater SUV? Before you peruse some of the pricey options from high-end manufacturers out there, let us tell you some facts about the fourth-generation Nissan Pathfinder. It has been a favorite for many out there, and with prices on newer models dropping, it may be judicious to give these a look before you commit your wallet. 2013 used Pathfinder models on wards are fourth-generation models which has remained largely identical throughout, bar a pretty extensive face-lift in 2017. You can expect a used 2016 Nissan Pathfinder SV 4WD model to sell at $25,000, a 2017 SV 4WD model for $29,000, and a barely used 2018 SV 4WD model at around $33,000.

In fact, around $15,000 will get you a tidy 2016 post-face-lift example in its mid-range SV trim. But if you want a more premium experience, looking at a previous face-lift SL trim isn’t a bad way to go about it as the 2016 face-lift was mostly about [...]
