  • What's New for 1996

    Outstanding new Pathfinder debuts with dual airbags and great interior styling. Engine output is up, but the Pathfinder is still not going to win any drag races. The new interior is open, airy and much more comfortable than most of its competitors.

Best car i've ever owned

Vehicle: 1996 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV

Over the years, I've traded Fords & Chevy's every 2-4 years. I've had my Pathfinder going on 10 years. Outside of the 3 recalls in the first few years, having a temporary problem with brakes (who I blame Just Brakes - not Nissan) and having to replace the starter twice, my Pathfinder has been a good car. The only gripes that I have are the same ones that most owners have had. Poor gas mileage and low engine power. I'm starting to get the "new car itch" and am going to look closely at the Pathfinder as well as the Murano.




Great budget suv

Vehicle: 1996 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV

I bought one used based partly on Edmund's reviews and I have'nt been disappointed. Lift hatch could open a tad higher, may son and I are tall and we constantly bump our heads. Engine is a little underpowered and gas mileage could be better but for a good budget SUV it's tough to beat. Ride and comfort are okay but this is still basically a truck and rides and drives like one. Originally bought as a 3rd vehicle but I now drive it more than our other cars.
