4th Pathfinder, still love them
By Lawrence Acabah on
2001 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This is my 4th, starting with a 92, had 200k when I sold it, the other 2 were killed by stupid drivers, the latest has been great. The only major issue I have had is when 2 of my injectors failed, it took a while to find the problem but when the dealership mechanic got it he found it right away. Other than that it has been a solid performing vehicle. I use mine for work and family so it is high miles, currently at 180k but it looks and drives like a much newer vehicle. I can see where Nissan has skimped over the years with quality of the interior materials but with the 01 it appeared to come back a bit. Power is perfect for its size. For its age and what it is I have no complaints.
tire size, steering wheel controls, frigid AC, seat warmers, folding rear seats, power of acceleration when needed.
storage is weak, much wasted space. steering wheel tilt mechanism is cheese, the 92 was better in application. cd disc changer is a known fail point, mine did.
