2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Initially bought the vehicle because the wife wanted third row seats, and I currently own 2 Nissan trucks, a 1990 4x4 hard-body with 270,000 miles and only replaced the head gasket, and a 2001 s/c frontier 4x4 with 140,000 and have only had to replace the timing chain which is maintenance anyway, so I have been more than pleased with the reliability of Nissan trucks and was very comfortable in the purchase of the pathy, it currently has about 90; 000 mile on it and has run like a top, I have driven it all over the western United States on many occasions and never had a problem. Today the check engine light says that the tps sensor is malfunctioning, researching the web I found about the trans woes
gets pretty decent mileage on the highway for a midsized, comfortable and the traction control is superb in ice and snow, very comfortable for long trips ( have taken it on many 3000 mile round trips) and has lots of power
pretty happy with it and my wife loves it i even have to admit it has been a far better vehicle than i thought, i am worried about the trans , since i found out every one is having problems, drained the transmission today and all is well, might still replace the radiator anyways, cheaper than a tran
