1996 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

The engine is strong and reliable. Had to replace the water pump after 45K miles. Changing the oil is a pain due to the oil filter is located under the plastic skid gaurd. It has to be taking out everytime you change the oil. The suspension I would rate very poor. After 60K miles of highway driving, I had to replace the torsion bars, ball joints, and RF cv joint. The car does seem to be built solid as there are no annoying little rattle after 90K miles. The radio is cheap and my power attenna broke after 50K.

Best Features

The paint is very good and holds up after parking outside for 5 years. The buckets seats hold you in. Lots of space and headroom.

Worst Features

Redesign the suspension so that it does not sway during highway driving. Improve the quality of the radio. Change the oil filter location so that it is easily accessible.
