2001 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
I bought a used 2001 Pathfinder SE 4WD 2
months ago with about 38,000 miles
already on it. And I have to say that
it's been a pleasant experience so far
over about 2,000 miles. No major
problems or issues came up - although I
have 2 minor worries that I will have
looked at during next service. The
sunroof shade rattles a bit when open,
and the rear hatch lifting rods just
started to skweak while opening or
closing. Other than that I am happy
with it and looking forward to doing
some Colorado camping and towing a ski
boat in the summer.
Steering wheel cruise and radio/CD
controls, reclining rear seats, power
seats, and strong engine.
Nissan, you MUST improve gas milage! I
get anywhere from 16 - 18 MPG during the
cold months, so it should improve a
little in the summer. But still...
Watch the fuel efficiency of the next
generation 4.0 V6 in 2005 and consider a
diesel option in 2006 or 2007! Please!
