2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Seriously, I know people buy SUV's for a lot of different reasons, but as far as bang for the buck, I think the Pathfinder is by far the best buy. It's got a pretty powerful v6, great torque. The SE model I have has a nice little roar to the v6. Decent acceleration, great power. The 4x4 has great power. I crossed a snow covered medium going 60 miles/hr on 4x4 high, passing a slow car, like it was nothing, with no loss of control whatsoever. It's great in bad weather. Very reliable car. Maintenance and maintenance costs are minimal. Decent gas mileage for a high performance suv. Fun car. I love the look of it, and am sad about more boxy bulky look on the new models.


Best Features

4x4. Off road capabilities. Comfortable ride.


Worst Features

None really.

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


Review

I always loved the design on the Pathfinder, and this vehicle is no exception. Rides smooth, good ergonomically inside. We have the LE Platinum Addition so it has almost every option you could ever want.


Best Features

4wd, part time, full time, and low gearing at the turn of a knob is nice. Sterio is well laid out too


Worst Features

Leaky brake lines at 80K - unacceptable. No cargo or weight capacity, one person in the back seat and groceries under the hatch should not give me the feeling of riding at the end of my rear strut travel. Can't imagine towing a boat with this truck, or loading it full of camping supplies.

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


Review

Overall, it's a well built vehicle. Very good ride quality and fun to drive. It's not a true 4x4 so its still a little squirrely on ice or slush.


Best Features

Bose sound system w/ 6 CD changer, 3.5L V6 with 250 hp, 2WD mode for the summer time, heated seats, and its power everything!!!


Worst Features

Placement of the rear bench, an AUX jack for your ipod, a bigger fuel tank, the auto climate control knob shouldn't look like the volume control

I like my pathfinder other than the gas mileage and the 6 disc radio gives me trouble in cold weather. Its a very comfortable ride with lots of room. Goes excellent in the snow.


Best Features

Leather interior, moon roof, rds radio


Worst Features

6 disc radio doesn't work in the cold.

Review

I've driven and owned a lot of vehicles and the Pathfinder is one of my favorites. It's truck tough yet drives like a comfortable car and has luxury car features. The quality, reliability is among the best in the business. It just feels solid!! It has the VQ35DE engine which has been on Wards 10 best list since 1995. This moves the truck with V8 authority. The All-mode 4x4 works very well. In "Auto" it reacts to changing road conditions quicker than its rivals and in "4Hi" it turns into a snow monster. I would take the Pathfinder over a 4Runner or Pilot any day. The only other SUV that feels tough, drives well and feels safe is the Lexus GX470.


Best Features

Tough. Reliability. Quality. Engine. Comfortable.


Worst Features

Slightly better rear seat room
