Since were slamming here. Lets talk about the great Mercedes. I remember when I was looking for a SUV in 2000, I read Consumer Reports. As I recall, the Mercedes SUV was like 150% worse than average on reliability, while the 4Runner was 78% better than average. In other words the Mercedes reliability was in the toilet.
I also considered the Nissan Pathfinder. Here are a few things I didn't like.
1.) Power Steering, not being speed sensitive, felt over assisted at highway speeds. It felt like my parents Buick, (not a good thing).
2.) Crash tests were OK to Marginal while the 4Runner was Good.
3.) Pathfinder had a small trunk and a small payload.
4.) No frame, but a uni-body. Some people desire a full frame, like me.
5.) Use of premium fuel, I didn't like paying 20 cents more for each gallon I used.
Now you noticed I didn't slam the Mercedes and Nissan on their boards, but since your visiting I felt it was OK to respond.
