#1 of 3 Russet Leather anyone???

Hey there folks. Looking to pick up a new Pathfinder here soon and have a chance at one with the Russet leather interior. Have not seen that color live, and may not have a chance to, so I thought I'd ask if anyone here has seen it and what there thoughts were.
Thanks in advance.

I own White Frost with Russet Leather. It is the reason I bought the vehicle. I love it. However, interior quality of Nissan is not up to par with Toyota. They have had to replace my entire headliner (ceiling) twice because it started falling out in the cargo area around 7000 miles. Second one they put in had so many creases and looked terrible. Third one installed had fewer creases but fit is terrible. They damaged several interior trim pieces and tore weatherstripping, stains on sunroof, and there are still areas where it doesn't fit correctly. I wish I had never bought it and at this point the interior will never be the same again. Save yourself the heartache and buy a Toyota.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry to hear about your problems. I am pretty locked into the Pathfinder. I have owned an FX35, and my brother has owned both a Pathfinder and an Xterra with no problems to date. I think your issues, while terrible, is isolated and one of those unfortunate things that happens. I have a friend who owns a 4runner who has had nothing but problems...but like you, I think it was just and isolated thing. Both are great cars, and should likely hold up.
My main question was about the Russet color as I think I will have a choice between it and the Dark Graphite. Sounds like you think it looks good. I know this may be a stretch...but any chance of you taking some pics and emailing them to me? If not...no big deal.
Appreciate your response!
