1998 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD


I've owned the SUV for almost 4 yrs and put in 30K+ miles. Serves my purpose well as a daily driver and offers alot of utility. Taken it for skiing as well as runs to Home Depot and such. Cargo capacity is good w/seats folded. Biggest complaint is mpg as I only manage 14mpg, but within estimated range. Handling at highway speed not the best, but that's a given since its based on an outdated truck platform. Wet/snow performance is good so long as tires are up to task. The Bose stereo is a major PITA to replace as modification to the OEM Bose speakers are necessary. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cheaper 4WD vehicle that offers good reliability and adequate driving characteristics.

Best Features

4WD, utilitarian cargo space, and off- road capability

Worst Features

Stronger engine, better rust-proofing on chassis components, as my stepbar and exhaust has rusted. Gas mileage is subpar for a V-6.
