2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Handles well on-road and off. Wide profile not the best in snow, but decent with good tires. Very comfortable, and most importantly, eminently reliable in over 85,000 miles. Of course, gas mileage is pretty poor, but I think I will keep it as a second car for camping, trips, etc., even when I look into a more economical daily driver.
4x4 system, ergonomics are very car-like, and drives sufficiently car-like for easy long trips.
Fix rear bump-stops to ease the ride for rear passengers, a higher gear in overdrive would have helped fuel economy on the highway considerably.
