Love this old thing
By Jeannie on


1996 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD


10 years old and I keep waiting for this old guy to start having problems, but so far it goes when & where I want it to. Big enough to haul anything I need to, small enough that it's maneuverable and doesn't make gas a budget item, even at $2.50. It's comfortable, has great visibility for the driver all around and it's just plain pretty. At 10 years old it doesn't look dated at all. Had to replace the exhaust manifold, struts & shocks about 3 years ago, but beyond that it's been only oil, brakes, etc. The worst thing about this old guy? Its radio buttons started popping off a few years ago and I've lost several of them. Everything still works, just don't have all the buttons ; )

Best Features

Classic styling, reliability, comfort, lots of small, convenient storage spots for small items, maps, emergency equipment

Worst Features

Passenger seat isn't as adjustable as the driver's seat & doesn't seem to be as comfortable for somebody w/ back problems. No complaints from teens, just from the older folks on long trips
