2003 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This SUV needs traction control.Spun
tires an intersections with the front
half of the vehicle in the way of
oncoming traffic many times.
Also doesn't handle well on wet roads.
Was very fast but almost too fast for
what it was (a light rear wheel drive
truck) Used the 4WD in the rain.
Enjoyed the truck at times and thought
it was fun and sporty to drive but
didn't feel secure in it. Didn't hold
the road well.
Also not roomy enough for our small
family of 3 plus dog. Gas mileage wasn't
great either for such a small truck.
Just got rid of it after 7 months and
moved on to an '02 Explorer. Much
different ride. Won't miss the Pathfinder.


Best Features

Bose 6 CD stereo, climate control


Worst Features

Traction control, bigger backseat

Review

Shoulda done more homework: We were
taken by the performance,
responsiveness, and sporty look of the
Pathfinder, but quickly came to realize
that the back seat and cargo areas are
skimpy, and the ride
is...well...jumpy? The V6 is fun, but
combine that with some mediocre rubber
and no Traction Control, and pulling
out into a wet intersection during
heavy traffic can get dicey...


Best Features

Great V6, nice Bose soundsystem.


Worst Features

Traction Control (which I think is now an option?), better tires, more room...

Review

This is my first suv,and this truck is
very well rounded.It has a good solid
ride,and it handles well.The build
quality is very good,and it has lots
of comfort.the cloth is very high
quality and even though the driver
seat is not power,it has a lot of
adjustment options.Stereo/cd sounds
good ,but could use a subwoofer.Heater
is a little weak on floor setting.


Best Features

power,ride,full size spare (under the truck)nice roof rack,radio controls on the steering wheel,looks.


Worst Features

Gas mileage,regular grade fuel,driver seat needs to move back one more notch,stronger heater.

Review

This is my third Pathfinder in a row.
I have taken it to the dealership 8
times and they can not fix a creaking
noise that I hear above my head. Did
not have this problem before.


Best Features

Performace, it drives like a dream. Very powerful.


Worst Features

Gas mileage and more room in back seat area.
