2001 Nissan Pathfinder LE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I've had my 2001 Pathfinder LE for quite a while now. I have not had any truly mechanical issues during this time so have to say that it's been pretty good. As with several other reviewers, I've seen the following issues: 1. Engine, transmission, drive shaft sensors have all been replaced 2. The Bose in-dash 6-disc changer (made by Clarion by the way) gave me the Err messages at about 3 years in or 40K. Had to replace it with an after market unit. 3. The interior durability is VERY poor. I've replaced the driver side power seat motor/rails. 4. Today, I'm going to be paying about $700 for some A/C repairs. All in all, it's just been OK. My 1999 Maxima was rock solid but was pre-Goshen..
Rides nicely for a truck based SUV, reasonable space, looks nice.
Improve interior quality (CD player, mechanical parts, more driver side headroom). Improve the quality of the sensors.
