2001 Nissan Pathfinder SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

The 6 CD changer quit working at 50k miles, and the automatic transmission started giving me trouble at 70k miles. Between 40 and 70 mph, it lurches sometimes and shifts hard into overdrive. The dealer recommended replacing it for $2900, but it's still mostly OK so I'm still driving it without the repair. Now I'm at 80k miles. I've been very pleased with the power. Rear passengers sometimes complain about the ride, but as the driver I love it. Very good sound system. I get 17 mpg overall with the 3.5 liter V6. One or both front brake rotors warped somewhere along the way, but I brake hard so it may be my fault. Other than these problems it's been completely trouble free.

Favorite Features

Very good power. Good sound system. Good driving position and visibility, and good ride for the driver. Useful rear cargo area with fold-down rear seats.

Suggested Improvements

Center console area could be laid out a little better.
