If you’ve been reading Papiblogger for a while you know that Manny takes a lot of road trips with this family. Although I haven’t taken as many or as “extravagant” road trips as he has, I have taken a few memorable road trips with my family. The most important thing I consider before embarking on the road is the safety of my family. And that begins with the type of car I drive. I know Manny has endorsed other cars in the past, but I was personally invited to attend the NISSAN car expo this last week and I was pleasantly surprised and amazed by their new cars. I think I’ve even found the next road trip car for my family. The Nissan NEXT event, located at the Los Angeles International Auto Show , gave me an opportunity to explore the wide variety of innovations that Nissan brings to the automotive industry. I was able to check out the the all-new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with its multi-touch interactive displays, and also had  a chance to drive a wide variety of Nissan vehicles including the Nissan LEAF, the first mass produced 100% all-electric vehicle.. So what is my new road trip car? Hands-down, the new 2o13 Nissan Pathfinder. ( I know Manny, you swear by others, but you have to try this car!) Just look at the beauty of this vehicle via my instagram pics:

The car was popular. Had to wait in line to get a closer look.

Checking out the console. Temperature control and HDD Navigation system. Bluetooth handsfree system and USB adapters..perfect for techie dads!


Have children? Want safety? The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has you covered. Safety locks, plenty of room for car seat ( or seats) dual 7″ head restraint family entertainment system with wireless headphones…that means no more ( or at least less) temper tantrums and having to pull-over for entertainment!

In addition to all the cool features I just described, the Pathfinder gives you back something that is easy to lose once you become a father and that is: your hipness. This car is not for “nerds”. It’s hip and cool and when you’re alone and without the kids, your “me time” will make you feel like a young bachelor again. This isn’t like a van, it has  SUV capability to deal with unexpected weather conditions. Again, safety safety safety–awesome.

If you want to find out more about the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, I suggest you check out their Facebook page. You’ll find lot’s of pictures and more details about its functionality and features.

Like Nissan’s page FB and if you’ve test-driven a Nissan Pathfinder or plan on making it your 2013 family car, let me know! Tweet Manny and I ( Octavio) @papiblogger using the hashtag #Nissanespanol and #Nissanpathfindr.
