2001 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
His name is Walter. I have had him for 5 years and am very happy it. Like with the other reviews, my CD went out at 15k miles (covered), replaced, and went out again at 40k miles. By this time I had an iPod, so I didn't really care. At 70k miles my A/C went out, only cost $400 to replace. Tires lasted 45k miles, so I was happy with that. I was rear ended at 60k miles and the unibody construction kept me very safe. After being repaired, I have not noticed any performance or rattling problems. If I were to buy another SUV, I would definitely buy a Pathfinder. I've been very happy with it.
Horsepower. The 260 hp (manual trans) is fantastic. Love the 4WD also, I can drive w/o problems in 10" of snow. I also like the compact size of the truck. It's plenty roomy inside, but it's not a beast to get in/out and drive around.
CD player an obvious flaw. Get an iPod converter :o)
