Good SUV despite Nissan
By Gasoholic on
1997 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought this vehicle as a leftover
demo. It's not that I haven't liked
the Pathfinder but it has at any given
time had several repairs that needed
to be done:
*bolts broken off manifold/exhaust
interface. I found out about it when
they were replacing a valve between
the fuel tank and engine that was
*new front brakes at 52K?
*new clutch at 60K.
*cracked struts at 65K with never more
than light off-roading? These babies
cost $1000 a piece to replace.
*The climate control is clumsy and
it's either been too cold or too warm
in the truck.
Nissan needs to stop convincing itself
that they are as good as Toyota and
Comfort. Style. Lots of cargo room.
Rear seats comfortable with reclining
Needs better climate control. Needs
to be less high maintenance in terms
of wear of parts.
