2005 Nissan Pathfinder XE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I've owned four Nissans in the last five years including a 99.5 Pathfinder SE 4WD, and went out immediately and bought the 2005 new body style when it came out. This SUV has a rugged, great looking exterior. However, the vehicle is plagued with quality issues. The fuel gauge is not working (bad fuel level sending unit). The CD player is not working. The rear driver passenger window is not working. Also, there are gaps in the upholstery where seems are not sewn together properly and foam is pushing through. All of these malfunctions hit right after the 36,000 warranty expired (if you get one, get the extended warranty). Also, don't expect any assistance from Nissan
Powerful V6 4.0L engine, exterior styling
Better service, willingness from Nissan to accept responsibility for the quality issues and repair ill will with Nissan owners. I will probably not own another Nissan after this experience...
