Beat a path to this LE!
By Richard Spafford on
2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Excellent vehicle. Only have 1,000 miles on it, but the build quality, ride, and handling are just great. Got it for $500 below invoice and 4.2% lease interest rate for 39 months. We're coming from 9 years of Grand Cherokee V8's, so I have to admit that I miss the power a bit, but it's all right. I recommend premium gas for more punch and better mileage, but it runs fine on regular. If you've owned Nissans (this is our 4th, plus many test drives), you know they have a certain feel or personality that is not as plain vanilla as Toyota and Honda. This is true of the Pathfinder LE too. Fine vehicle.
Build quality, brakes, handling, Bose stereo, seats, smooth power, quiet for an SUV.
Put all wheel disks on it (even though braking is excellent) and definitely put the 260 HP version of the 3.5 V6 in it... like yesterday. A little more head room in the back seat because you can brush your head at 6' if you lean forward to talk to someone up front.
