2005 Nissan Pathfinder SE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We absolutely love our new Pathfinder. We traded in an 02 Montero Sport that had 74K miles and needed a new transmission. The difference in the two is like night and day. It drives great and is very comfortable.


Worst Features

The 3rd row seat is extremely tight for adults. We are able to fit two small adults back there, but it was definately designed for kids.

2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I really love this SUV it has just about everything a person could ask for. It has great power and the 4x4 is excellent. The leather and the navigation system are nice also.I have started to have a problem with the rear driver side passenger window button is shorting out will not come up sometimes. Road noise is a little to loud with windows up on the freeway.


Best Features

The power is probably the best feature.


Worst Features

Improve cabin insulation to help with road noise.

2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The outside noise stays outside. I can hear my daughter from the third row seat. The power is there when i need it. The horn is not loud enough. I liked the horn on my ford explorer better. Everything else is up to par.


Best Features

I like the dte and mpg figures. The heated seat really loosens the knots from my back after a day at work. The adjustable brake and gas pedal are also useful when i am trying to get comfortable.


Worst Features

The radio needs a mute button. I would prefer dual exhaust. I like to be heard with a strong horn, the horn sound muffled.

2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We've only had our Pathfinder a few weeks, but we like it. We did not experience the quality control problems you describe. It is a very comfortable highway vehicle, and actually gets close to its EPA figure of 23 mpg on the road. It also did well in a driving rainstorm on this trip. Plenty of power, and very smooth acceleration. Bose Sound system is great ! Seats would be great if front headrests didn't push your head so far forward of your body.


Best Features

Bose sound system, power front seats, smooth transmission, dual front climate control


Worst Features

Add side marker turn signals, and/or make existing side lights blink when turn signals are used. Headrests on front seats push your head too far. forward.

2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent SUV. I have had many different SUV's and this by far outperforms any of them. When I first went to Nissan, I was interested in a Murano. However, the Murano did not have a lot of power compared to the Pathfinder. The Pathfinder sounds mean. That is great. It also has an agressive looking exterior. The interior is very well designed and user friendly. The Bose stereo system is excellent. The Pathfinder drives great and is very comfortable. This was an excellent purchase and I would recommend it to everyone.


Best Features

Engine power, ride, Bose stereo, and room


Worst Features

None
