After 15 yrs she finally died on me. I did have to have trans rebuilt after 160k mi but what do you expect. Overall very low maintenance as far as I am concerned. Debating rebuilding engine or buying rebuilt. She outlived two marriages so that says a lot. :) Some creature comforts died like cruise control, power door locks and alarm but what car still has all bells and whistles at that age. Body still in very good shape other than dent here and there. 245k mi

This has been the best vehicle I ever owned. Although I have not baby the vehicle it still looks fantastic, never had ANYTHING that cost me a bunch to fix, and except for the original junky battery crapping out, the vehicle has never left me stranded anywhere. Still rinning strong at 180,000 miles and all I done is change the water pump and maintenance (tires, oil changes, timing belts, spark plugs). Once I change the clutch I should be good for another 100K miles at least. I have taken the truck off roading, towed a trailer for several year, went to the mountains (ie used the thing as an SUV). I just wish I had 2 of them.

Our Pathfinder has been a great car, so much so, that we are thinking of getting another one again. The only drawback - mileage, but it's the same with all SUV's that size. Even after all of these years it still looks great!
CFC-free air conditioning is standard and side-impact door beams are introduced to protect occupants. The Pathfinder's standard stereo gets its wattage increased and the SE's leather seats are now heated. How cozy.
