Best Midsize SUV
By a32 on
2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Power, handling, comfort, quality and reliability.
Smoother ride (may have been fixed with newer generation), better fuel economy.
