2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We got the full '4-square' treatment,
but still paid close to Edmund's TMV at
the time (around 30k).
We have had very few problems and
mechanically have had to just do the
usual oil changes and regular service.
My wife is the main driver of this
vehicle and she was dead set on getting
an SUV. We looked around at a number
of them - Jimmy (unsupportive seats and
mushy handling), Tahoe (too big),
Passport (buzzy interior), Cherokee
(this one was used and too old) - and
found what we wanted in the Pathfinder.
Reliability and engine power. Handles
capably and my wife likes high seating
Rear bench is very low. Driver seat
memory function moves seat to 'home'
(full back on seat travel) when
ignition is turned off. This tends to
crush whatever is behind the seat.
