1997 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I bought this following up on previous use of a Jeep Cherokee and Suzuki Sidekick. It's a different vehicle altogether, with much more car-comfort ride and good 4WD capabilities. Had several minor problems which in some cases the dealer took care of under warranty (brakes, tires, alternator, battery), and others such as throttle control (they claim this was a maintenance problem - I think it is poor design), interior items falling off (seat lever, third brake light, storage privacy screen). Overall it's been a good car (now 48,000 miles. Biggest recurrent headache is brakes which I have had replaced and again recently resurfaced.

Best Features

Nice look, comfortable ride and decent 4WD performance

Worst Features

Needs more power, better support or design on throttle assembly (throttle starts sticking at about 15,000 useage. Dealer says it is a regular maintance item to take out throttle and clean it. I've never heard of this before on any other vehicle I've owned.
