Bought my 96 used not quite a yr ago. I had around 87K from the 2nd owner who bought it of a lease in 97. I have done nothing to it other than two oil changes, previous owner was the same with two t-ups (1 brk job, 2 sets tires) and one window solenoid...that's it four 8yrs?! Still is mostly original (including the exhaust?!). Sure the 4 rnr may have one or two things over the pathfinder, but I don't believe it's worth the price difference (plus pathfinder has nicer intereor) better overall styling. Body is still rust free...no squeaks and still tight. Great job on this one Nissan...and the newer 3.5L engine...Wow, the one thing it lacked POWER (01 and up models)!!!!!!
Build quality (fit and finish), reliability, style, SE trim package features, awesome in the snow and off road, comfortable seats, well laid out controls...
Not the most powerful (but adequate - even while towing my 2500 lb boat). Gas mileage (but hey it is an SUV...and happens to be on the higher end of mileage ratings for any of the mid-size or larger)
