1992 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

5-spd. Bought with 125K miles, currently at 195K. Extremely reliable- -always starts. Have taken many trips cross country and would feel comfortable driving anywhere in it today. I average 17 mpg if city, 17 mixed and 20 on the hwy. Fairly comfortable seating position. I did 95 mph for a short jaunt the other night and it was comfortable and solid--yes, the engine still had capacity for more. Nice seating position--traffic never seems as bad when your above it. Have towed a trailer(denver-reno and back), various non-running vehicles and quite a few cars out of the deep snow. Am using Goodyear All-Terrain T/A-they work well with the vehicle. Narrow body is great between trees.


Best Features

Adj. suspension-sport setting makes it very stable down mtn passes. There is only one barely noticable sqeak in the interior--solid construction. Good visibility. UTILITY-put a frig in back once, gate can be left open & tied across to extend cargo room. Alpine deck w/ stock spkrs surprising good.


Worst Features

Turning radius & power. It is what it is: reliable & solid. Won't win you any racing awards no matter how fast you work the gears but you can always count on it to be there for you.

Review

I still own this Pathfinder and have 146 thousand miles on it. replaced the brakes and rotors few times, also replaced the distributor,also had to replace the transmission but that could have been from being hit in the rear end.Had some problems with air conditioner.Tires are real tricky on the Pathfinder must be matched and balanced for good road performance. This car would go another 146 k thousand but the body and frame are rusting out real bad. Engine dose not use any oil. Very dependable will miss it when gone.


Best Features

Easy maintaince, great handling especially in bad weather,dependability,


Worst Features

Needs improvement on body rust starts too early in life of car, cup holders,

1992 Nissan Pathfinder SUV XE 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Haven't had a major problem in all 12
yrs. Only needed standard maint such
as brakes, muffler, fluids, filters,
tires, etc.

For a 1992 SUV, the Pathfinder has
plenty of power and acceleration.
Only the 92 Explorer and Cherokee have
similar power. The 92 4Runner is a
dog.

Back seat has lots of legroom. I'm
tall and like to push the driver seat
all the way back. None of my
passengers ever felt the leg room was
cramped. Back seats also have
multiple tilt levels and offer very
nice comfort.

4WD is sweet! I've used it many times
on ski trips and for off-roading on
logging roads.

On the negative side, it has several
squeaks.


Best Features

The 92 Pathfinder has an "E-AT" button on the dash that allows you to increase the shift point by 1000 RPM. This is incredibly useful when climbing hills on the highway. I can fly up hills better than most cars can. Auto-locking hubs mean you don't have to get out to engage 4WD.


Worst Features

Moonroof wasn't an option on this vehicle.

Review

This is a solid SUV. I have over 210k
on my Pathfinder and It's still going
very strong. It's just passed smog
with flying color. I have not have any
problem with this SUV since the day I
bought it. Oil change every 5k miles,
and follow normal maintaince schedule.
Very solid vehicle... I got my money's
worth. A little bit Under Power.


Best Features

Solid, and very Reliable.


Worst Features

Keep the design simple.
