2006 Nissan Pathfinder S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Without a doubt this SUV is a winner. I have tested many vehicles off-road and I always favored a Pathfinder. My wife wouldn't go for the 4x4, therefore I was forced to live with the 4x2. In my opinion it is the best mid-large SUV for the buck.
The 4.0L/V6 engine. It has a nice accelaration and handles quite well. The extra cargo room is a must have for a family. The interior is way underrated. I think it's a nice drive.
No suprise here....gas mileage. Very few SUV's do well in this category. The rear seats are perfect for small kids, but for the rest of the world...sorry.
