Luxurious Comfortable Off-Roader

Jan 8, 2008 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliability, off-road capability, handling, design, features
Cons: gas mileage
The Bottom Line: Other than gas mileage, this car is a great buy. It handles superbly in a wide range of conditions, including challenging off-road tracks, and comes with great comfort, reliability.

I bought my Pathfinder (LE 4x4) one year ago, and I'm overall very happy with this car. When I was in the market, I was deciding between this Pathfinder, the Nissan X-Terra and the Toyota 4Runner. I finally went with the Pathfinder because it came at a ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Looks, Power, Reliability
Cons: Gas mileage
The Bottom Line: Solid, reliable, fun to drive and comfortable

My wife and I were in the market for a SUV for about 6 months. We knew there were A LOT of them out there to choose from, but we did have a certain level of reliability, looks, cost and utility. We test drove 3 generations of Pathfinders, the Saturn Vue, ... read more

Nissan Pulled This One Over On Me Once Too Often.

Oct 23, 2006 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: engine will run forever
Cons: Poor dealership network, poor customer service. Exhaust system garbage, poor build quality in general.
The Bottom Line: Avoid this vehicle.

This is my third Nissan in a row which tells you I'm loyal, however since buying the Pathfinder my thoughts have changed dramatically on Nissan. When buying I was stuck between the 4Runner and Pathfinder, however the new 4Runner model was just coming ... read more

good performer, lack of customer support from Nissan

Feb 2, 2004 - Updated Aug 10, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: power, handling, price
Cons: poor customer service, gas mileage (about 10 in city driving), brakes, climate control
The Bottom Line: The problems I had were relatively minor and if Nissan took care of them I would be relatively happy with the truck. But they don't and I am not.

I bought the truck new, have about 8k miles on it now. The truck performs great in terms of power and handling, but i wish I brought something else. Nissan service and customer support suck. This is my third Nissan, and I should have known better. ... read more

Nice Vehicle....Very Plush

Aug 26, 2003 - Updated Dec 30, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Smooth ride, Lots of power, Plush
Cons: A little price, small glove box, not enough rear seat leg room.
The Bottom Line: Recommended buy if you have the extra money.

The below review is from my 3 test drives over the course of a week. the attractive styling makes you look twice at the Pathfinder, and so does the sticker price. Listed as luxury SUV, price tag reflects that. The Pathfinder has very plush ... read more

Joyous Ambivalence

Apr 29, 2003 - Updated Mar 16, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: Get up and go, comfortable, quiet, consistent, deliberate
Cons: Poor radio, poor mileage, no LSD available, car frame, cost of repair, reliability problems
The Bottom Line: Initial quality is very good, but maintnenance problems on my vehicle are now overshadowing initial quality.

That's right. As much as I love pathfinders, and this is my third one, I have to say that I'm somewhat disappointed. I'll get to that later. First, there are some fantastic things about the 2003 Pathfinder SE 4x4. Handling and Performance ... read more

More Power to the Pathfinder

Mar 7, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: More powerful engine and redesigned interior.
Cons: Thight legroom for the rear seat position and low towing capacity.
The Bottom Line: Although I did not particularly like the low towing capacity, the 2003 Pathfinder is an excellent all around SUV.

Pros: Heated Seats, Stereo Controls on Steering Wheels, Auto seat memory, Sunroof,

The Bottom Line: Buy IT! Its the Best SUV for The money.

I have owned 2 Sentras and we own a frontier crew cab, So Nissans are a common name in our house. I love the body style- I know its been around for years, But I dont need a SUV to look like a tank. I compared the Pathfinder with all of the top SUVS and I ... read more
