This Pathfinder, which I bought in 2000, is a gem. I love this truck more than some people I've met, but frankly, it's more reliable! Thanks to a great mechanic who does its regular service, this Pathfinder continues to have excellent power, tight steering, and just the right amount of bounce (owing to a 2: body lift) to make it amazingly fun to drive. My only issue has been that 17 year old trucks, no matter who makes them, tend to begin to rust. My Pathfinder is no exception.
I love the steel body, feels safe as hell to drive. The interior is roomy and comfortable. Visibility is excellent. For a big truck, it has a great turning radius.
It's definitely a design flaw that all Pathfinders of this age I've seen have had rust behind the back door stepwells. That could use work.
