2003 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We looked at _all_ of the SUVs. Compared looks, features, MPG, size, price, maneuverability and availability. Pathfinder beat out Envoy, Explorer, Grand Cherokee, Durango and Pilot as it had best mix of all of our criteria. Now that we've driven the truck for a week, we are not disappointed.
My wife loves the heated seats, radio(CD Changer), and the nice interior. I like that my 3 y.o. daughter has a better view out of the windows, its maneuverability, and the large sunroof.
Only improvement is a criticism of the class. Gas mileage needs to be improved. But the Pathfinder is above average considering its responsive acceleration and ample power.
Beware: Our dealership was not honest in their creation of the final deal price and payments. Check the numbers!
