2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought The Pathfinder because it was praised on here, and I'm glad I did. It drives well, runs quiet, and hasn't given me major problems yet. I bought mine with 134,000 miles on it, but they are mostly highway miles. She gets around 15-16 MPG, but I'm trying to get her to around 20 or so. Probably going to add a K&N cold air intake soon. Changing your own oil can be kinda a drag too, being that the oil filter is underneath the semi-skid plate.


Best Features

Powerful engine, comfortable on long trips, stereo is nice.


Worst Features

Nissan has O2 sensor issues, but I'm sure they fixed them by now. Steering wheel sometimes comes off in my hand, leaving a gooey gunk on my hands.

2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Love this SUV. It handles great on the road, as nimble and stable as it gets for an SUV. Great power, gets off the line very nicely. Very fun to drive. Trade-off for the stability and agility is a harsh ride (especially for backseat riders). Bumps are very hard and abrupt with 5 ppl. Even though it's a 2WD I have taken it offroad and it has handled everything I've thrown at it. Average 16-17 mpg mixed (majority city). Zero problems.


Best Features

Power, handling, comfort, quality and reliability.


Worst Features

Smoother ride (may have been fixed with newer generation), better fuel economy.

Review

The SUV looks good on the outside, the inside like it's build cheap. Muffler or resonator needed work after 4 years at a cost of $850, which was ridiculous. Mileage is very lousy at 16 mpg city, 17.5 highway. I will definitely not buy again!

Review

What can I say, the best Pathfinder ever made by Nissan, shift-


Best Features

drive train, powerful superbly enhanced since its inception in 1995. A/C is always the best strong ones.


Worst Features

gas consumption is a factor improve it. Stereo must be surround. Power Rear window must be enhance. If the 4Runner has it on the rear, and the Caravan has it on the sides, why not the Pathfinder shld have the 3 of them.
