Basic transportation

by on
Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD

I bought this vehicle used from a coworker in 2005 and it had 127,000 on it. Well, one transmission and $2,200 later, it has about 147,800. It's a slow truck but reliable. The front seats are truly uncomfortable and need some type of better lumbar support. I worry about the transmission going out again and will be looking for tranny cooler. I just had the exhaust manifold replaced with the tranny last hear. The exhaust is leaking again!! It's not worth fixing. It will just have to hear the noise. This truck doesn't turn very well either. The gas mileage is horrible!! On the highway, you get about 263 miles on a full tank. City driving, you pray you get 180-200 miles on a full tank.




Great vehicle

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD

I took my 1994 Nissan Pathfinder over from my brother a number of years ago and it now has nearly 200,000 miles on it. Other than regular maintenance and a cracked exhaust manifold (fixed for $400), I have not had a single problem. this truck is fantastic off road, great around town, and acceptable on the highway. I use it for work, commuting, and offroad driving in the moutains while biking.




Served our purposes well

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD

We bought our Pathfinder with the Sport Option to have the spare well mounted outside the cargo hold. For years we used it in truly rugged conditions. It has been down many a lost trail hauling 5-6 kayaks to rivers. Only got stuck at the base of a steep incline once on snowy winter day. Not enough weight in back to keep the tires grounded, but did managed to finally get itself out of trouble just as our friends arrived in a "Jeep Cherokee". Mechanically we have been annoyed with the exhaust pipes breaking just behind the engine block. Really annoying and expensive to fix. We have 250,000 km on this beast.




Inexpensive, quality, suv

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD

My original intent for purchasing this vehicle was for light-medium off roading, and camping. It serves that purpose well. My Pathfinder is very reliable and is easy to work on. I've added on a transmission cooler to help with wear and tear on the tranny. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for an inexpensive and reliable SUV.




A few things to watch

by on
Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD

I was the owner of a 94 Pathfinder that I recently sold. There are a few things that potential buyers should be aware of. The automatic transmissions on these vehicles fail earlier than expected on these vehicles. Nissan is aware of this problem and has even issued a service bulletin about it, but no recall. The problem is that the transmission cooler clogs up with debris and causes the transmission to overheat and fail to the tune of a $2800 rebuild. Second is the exhaust manifolds overheat and crack and or break away from the engine block. Other than that the Pathfinder is fun to drive and quite reliable.




Good-fun small family suv!

We've been really happy with our '94 Pathfinder XE. Though it's the base model, it is loaded with many convienience features that make living with it day to day a treat. My family and I use it primarily for camping and light off roading--and it serves our needs just fine.
