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:
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.
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.
