Used (2013ish) Highlander vs. New (2016) Pathfinder

Having resigned myself to an ongoing need for 3rd row seating, I'm
debating purchasing a low-mileage used Toyota Highlander (CPO, 20-30k
miles, v6, base trim) vs. a 2016 Nissan Pathfinder (base trim). In our area,
these vehicles are within 1k - 2k within each other in price.

Our priorities include 1. safety, 2. reliability, 3. price (<30k). I'm a little spooked by Nissan's past CVT troubles in Pathfinders. Would like to use the new vehicle for about 8 years, then downsize. I'd be very grateful for any insight and/or analyses into the pros/cons here. Many thanks, Caroline
