Crossover SUVs are the "in" thing right now. In fact, it is sure to remain that way for years to come. The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder is an incredible contribution to this sought after vehicle segment.

The 2018 Pathfinder is even better than its competition, Hyundai Santa Fe. Both are excellent options, however, the Pathfinder comes with something perfect for the forgetful ones.

This large crossover of Nissan comes with Rear Door Alert! Nissan recognizes that this is indeed a rising concern for drivers. This alert informs the driver that something or someone might still be in the back row.

So, how does the rear door alert work? The rear doors have sensors. It detects various activities in the back seat of the crossover. As one opens the rear doors, it remembers the act. The sensor then recognizes that it has to be opened again after the trip.

If the doors remain closed, it will send a warning in the instrument panel. If the driver failed to notice, the alarm would go off. The alarm may be a simple technology, but it is just as important as its other features.

But why is there a need for such alarm? The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder comes with such technology for obvious reasons. Drivers forgetting their kids or pets in the back seat of the car is irresponsible but common.

Deaths of pets and children left inside the car alone while parents are doing errands increased over time. The alarm ensures that this incident eventually stops.

Perhaps, you might be asking how good the 2018 Pathfinder is. Well, this large SUV is capable of 284-horsepower output. The 2018 Pathfinder provides smooth and responsive driving experience. The suspension is impressive enough for its size and price range.

Some experts, however, think it is lackluster. Car enthusiasts desire to see a little bit more updates. End of the day, it depends on who's going to drive. The customer is King. The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder may or may not tickle the fancy of everyone, but it is an able crossover.
