2004 Nissan Pathfinder LE Platinum Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The body's bold, classy, and muscular lines as well as the very well appointed and up-scale interior are like no other SUV and really attracted us. We went Nissan again for the third time!! The power, comfort, and handling are great. This SUV has great materials as well as fit and finish. After 28000 very hard miles the only problem to date is that the rear drum brakes squeal when cold. An easy fix. The gas mileage is about average but the tank should be a little bigger for more range. The rear seat is a little cramped for 6- footers. Great otherwise. Rear storage is good. If you want a classy but reliable SUV pick this one!!!


Favorite Features

Bose sound system thumps. The automatic climate control is one of the best designs ever. The interior is by far the classiest of any SUV in it's class. The exterior is very classy. Hated to see it go.


Suggested Improvements

Unusual for rear drum brakes on a vehicle of this caliber. Should have had rear discs. Larger gas tank to help with range on trips. A little more room for rear passengers would be nice.

Review

Absolutely love to drive this SUV with car like features. Handling is great, quiet ride and ok fuel comsumption. Definetly needs rear hatch release instead of glass release only or ability to open glass from back of vehicle without using driver side release.


Favorite Features

Exterior look. gauges, engine performance, handling


Suggested Improvements

Keyless entry without fob. Rear glass release from back of vehicle. More headroom.

Review

I have put 1500 miles on mine and I have concluded that "I like it". It has power, comfort simple to operate and handles very well. Great for hurricanes and remodeling. It can easily haul 12 sheets of plywood or sheetrock if you fold the rear seat down and lay 2 2x4s on the top of the folded read seat back - I was unable to do that with the Durango or 4-Runner. Only thing I'd change is the location of the oil filter. Its a bear to get to. Great little vehicle.


Favorite Features

cargo room and comfort in a small package. handles super


Suggested Improvements

oil filter location is a bear -

Review

Have nothing but wonderful things to report about my Pathfinder. It is my first SUV and I could not be more pleased with its comfort. Am particularly happy with the way it drives---frankly, it is MUCH easier to handle than the Grand Marquis I traded! The performance is magnificent.....very powerful, smooth ride, and no problems todate. The interior is so comfortable and roomy; love the sun roof! Second-row seat folds down. GORGEOUS luminous gold....It is my LSU Fightin' Tigers vehicle!


Favorite Features

Drivability.....easy, easy to handle; comfortable interior with great amenities. Particularly enjoy the sun roof and steering wheel controls for the radio.


Suggested Improvements

Two trash bags...front and rear! Something that attaches/hangs from an existing knob/handle and is machine- washable.

Review

Wow! 'Got the superblack color and it's like a limo! Powerful, quiet, smooth ride and handles great! I recently moved - now have a 45 minute commute but look forward to the drive every morning and and every evening! Best vehicle I've every owned. Highly recommend!


Favorite Features

Power, ride, quiet, climate control, audio system, quality, interior and exterior appearance (check out the great looking 17" alloy wheels!)


Suggested Improvements

Nitpicks - could really use a bit more headroom and legroom for a vehicle in this class (existing room is adequate, but a little more would be nice).
