2003 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I originally had a used 2000 Pathfinder and put over 170K miles on it and never had a problem with it. I traded it in (only because I wanted something newer and sportier) on a 2004 Maxima which turned out to be a piece of crap car! I went back to a Pathfinder this time buying a used 2003 Pathfinder and love it so far.
The only real issue so far has been a cosmetic one; I believe the paint quality is poor.
Keep in mind it has 130k on it but I've never had a vehicle's paint chip like this one does.
Besides that, I have no complaints other than of course the sh-tty gas mileage but fortunately it does not require premium unleaded.
Strong engine, nice looks, 4X4 comes in handy on the beach here in Florida, very reliable, and a all around solid SUV.
Take good care of it and it will last a very long time.
needs better gas mileage and a better quality paint job.
