1994 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I bought this truck at a dealership that had 55k on it. It was the best vehicle that I ever owned. The body and the frame will go before the motor will. I put over 300k mileage on this vehicle before I put it to rest this spring! I live in minnesota and the 4x4 works so beautiful and the mileage I got was 16city/21Hwy. I one time I was a chevy person and but with this Pathfinder I had, I'm sticking with Nissan Vehicles.


Best Features

Fully loaded: AC,PW,PL,PS,Tilt,4x4,CC,PB,Great stereo system


Worst Features

There is only one thing that comes to mind and It is the frame, it should be stronger or last longer than the motor!!

Review

I bought my used one-owner, well maintained Pathfinder in 2002. I've put over 50,000 trouble free miles on the truck since I purchased it. Current mileage is 96,000. I've crept along on rough, rutted desert roads many times with out getting stuck. Turning in tight areas takes lots of work. My best highway mileage was slightly over 20 mpg. Combined street/highway mileage is about 17. The engine works hard to push the truck on hills. It could use another 20-30 horsepower. The cup holders were an after thought. The radio speakers are odd sized and it is difficult to find after market replacements. I like the Pathfinder's ruggedness and boxy design.


Best Features

High ground clearance; full off road package--skid plates; limited slip differential; four wheel disk brakes.


Worst Features

Would have liked more power and a more efficient fuel system.

Review

Still love the exterior design of the car much more than the more recent models. Classic design. Seats are comfortable, dash is easy to read, cargo space is ample, and tires are great. Gas mileage is horrible. Have often taken it on road trips and it costs me an arm and a leg. Acceleration is about as slow as could be. Often take to the mountains and have to drive in the slow lane with my emergencies on.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. No pick-up at all.

Review

I purchased this vehicle when it was two years old and had 22K miles on it. Since then, I have driven it roughly 90K miles over a variety of terrain and it has been an excellent multi-purpose vehicle for me. In the eight years that I have owned the vehicle, I have replaced the battery, CV joints and belts along with the regular scheduled maintanence, oil, lube, tires, etc. I have a hunting lease in Texas and the vehicle performs flawlessly off-road. The range of 4 wheel options combined with the proper transmission settings allows me to creep up and down areas that other stock four wheel drive vehicles would not go. The 31x10.5x15 tires gives me ample clearance over most obstacles.


Best Features

Sedan like ride with the ability to take me most anywhere off-road.


Worst Features

A built-in cup holder and because the vehicle is underpowered, a K&N airfilter helped improve some of the performance. Some other performance upgrades could be modifying the ECU computer and a cat back exhaust system. Other than that, this Pathfinder is an excellent vehicle.

Review

Since first day I bought the car (second hand), it is full of problem! All type of problems and fix a couple of times in some problems, e.g.: the evaporator of A/C, altenator, stearing wheel problems, electric connections, belts, etc. And now, after 133,000 miles, the transmission quite working well. I heard it is a manufacture reliability problem.


Best Features

Exterior looks, e.g.: Big wheels


Worst Features

RELIABILITY! Transmission problem! Not a confortable ride.
