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

Review

Overall the Pathfinder was a good buy. Its strong, fast, and feels good to drive. The styling is a bit understated, and the extra exterior options (grillguard $399, skirack $100, rear wind buffer $78, taillight guards $168) can add up quick. Of these, the grillguard and the rear wind buffer add the most to the appearence of the vehicle. The main reasons I chose this vehicle over the other competitors (I had owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee) was the excellent reliability, and the lower price.

Favorite Features

Light on its feet, the Pathfinder SE V6 4X4 is strong and the ride feels great for an SUV. Excellent reliability record is a sure win. Cloth seats have a pleasant waffled pattern to them. Radio and climate controls are all digital, and easy to operate. Handles good on snow.

Suggested Improvements

Bose stereo system missing bass, skips a LOT in low temperatures (35 and lower). No storage area for the headrests of rear seats when folding forward. Roofrack on the SE is a concern, you can only mount the Nissan 'yakima' ski/ snowboard attachment to it. Fuel economy is negligible
