Not worth it

by on
Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

This was probably the worst can I ever owned. I bought it used with 150k and although it passed CA smog originally it always had a hesitation on acceleration that no shop or dealer was able to solve. I disliked the driving position. It rode poorly, the brakes were sub-par, the front shocks were changed three times with no ride quality improvement. It got terrible mileage like @15 mpg and less with AC on. Terrible bump-steer on the freeway. Lots of squeeks and rattles. On the plus side it had nice wheels and the AC worked good. I was happy to get rid of it.

Well built little suv truck

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

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.

Reliable compact suv

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

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.

Decent car

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

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.

120,000 and still driving

Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

I bought it new, it is now my oldest son's car and it is still going. After timing chain change at 100k, it still is running ok. Just needs some cosmetics and A/C work. I'm impressed.

Basic transportation

by on
Vehicle: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

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.
