2006 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my brand new 2006 Pathfinder SE with all of the package options, leather, sunroof, etc. It's been a great truck so far with no major issues, but it still has its flaws. It feels solid and strong and is very quick at the same time, however, there is nothing that irritates me more than a new vehicle that is already sounding like a cheap, old car. How do you explain noises that just started to appear after 12,000 miles? I think I'll purchase a European car again after this one goes, omething more refined.


Best Features

Lots of power, one of the best in its class. Roominess and practicality. Very good off road and on snow.


Worst Features

Tighter fit and finish around window seals and doors, and a quieter cabin. A new car/truck shouldn't have any squeeks or rattles.

2006 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've put about 25,000 miles on this truck in the past 12 + months. I've used it for towing up to 4,000 lbs, general highway and city driving. The power is great, major mechanical is strong, but it lacks a lot in overall refinement. The seats are below average in comfort, several trips to the dealer for electrical issues, traction control issues, body trim peeling off.


Best Features

Engine, transmission, towing ability.


Worst Features

Better seats, improve on plastic quality. Interior plastics appear very , very cheap. Interior finsh overall is very poor.

2006 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love the ride; the steering is solid and handles curves well. Have it had for almost 1 year now. Traded '01 Nissan Quest; still wanted the room without the low to ground vehicle. Even though this is not 4WD, it does well on loose gravel and low clearance areas. Pulls trailer with 4 wheeler extremely well.


Best Features

Bose sound system; sunroof.


Worst Features

More comfortable front seats (more cushion and wrap around); adjustable 3rd row seat backs.

2006 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle is the best, in my opinion of all vehicles in its class. With roomy interior and a very handsome exterior, Nissan went over and above in the Pathfinder design. I also own a Titan, which I normally pull my 23 foot, 4000 pound, wakeboard boat with. One day I decided to use the Pathfinder, I was impressed! It pulls with ease. Much better quality in all features than the Envoy, and Pilot, way better than Durango and Jeep. This thing is solid! It's the perfect combination of a powerful SUV, sporty handling and quickness. On the highway smooth and quiet. Fuel economy is better than I expected. I believe this is the SUV the other manufacturers try to copy.


Best Features

A+ power. Easy around town. Excellent Bose sound system! Third row seats flip down flush for an extra large trunk. Interior is plush and comfortable, a real trend setter.


Worst Features

Improvements? I can't think of any.

Review

We traded our 2004 Chev Trailblazer for this 06 Pathfinder. It handles much better than the Trailblazer. This Pathfinder is narrower and smaller, it has the power when needed. I would buy another Pathfinder in the future.


Best Features

Bose 6 changer CD system, moonroof, and how the seats fit your body so well.


Worst Features

Nothing at this time.
