1992 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD


Haven't had a major problem in all 12 yrs. Only needed standard maint such as brakes, muffler, fluids, filters, tires, etc. For a 1992 SUV, the Pathfinder has plenty of power and acceleration. Only the 92 Explorer and Cherokee have similar power. The 92 4Runner is a dog. Back seat has lots of legroom. I'm tall and like to push the driver seat all the way back. None of my passengers ever felt the leg room was cramped. Back seats also have multiple tilt levels and offer very nice comfort. 4WD is sweet! I've used it many times on ski trips and for off-roading on logging roads. On the negative side, it has several squeaks.

Best Features

The 92 Pathfinder has an "E-AT" button on the dash that allows you to increase the shift point by 1000 RPM. This is incredibly useful when climbing hills on the highway. I can fly up hills better than most cars can. Auto-locking hubs mean you don't have to get out to engage 4WD.

Worst Features

Moonroof wasn't an option on this vehicle.
