It will fall apart as it ages. Your parents definitely made a smart move about leasing that Pathfinder because those CVTs have had issues. Once the lease is up, return it, and get a Toyota Highlander as it'll outlast the Nissan by a huge margin.

My parents have historically leased their cars. They’ve also had a 2016 Rogue 2.5 S AWD (no problems with that) and a 2014 Town & Country (tire blew out). Neither had problems other than a tire blow out on the Town & Country


They are nice SUVs perfect for a lease that fall apart after 100k miles. DO NOT buy it, rather enjoy your lease while you have it.
