My Pathfinder is hands down one of the
best trucks I have ever driven. It's
as solid as anything, the suspension
makes for a great ride and good
handling on a variety of road
conditions, and the 3.3L engine is big
enough for all my needs. I've taken it
through axle deep snow and mud in 4x4
and never got worried even though we
were 20 miles off the main road.
All pieces on it seem to be built to
last; even the buttons (except the
somewhat crappy radio) are solid to the
touch. But the real test comes on
rough roads: cross several sets of
railroad tracks or run up a forest
service road in spring, and you don't
hear a single rattle.
Powerful engine, beautifully engineered
suspension, excellent interior layout.
Very simple and reliable 4x4 engagement
never leaves you wondering.
If they could keep this truck the same,
but improve the gas mileage, I would be
in heaven. Also, for the price Nissan
asks, would it be too much to throw a
decent stereo into these things?
