I bought this vehicle used from a coworker in 2005 and it had 127,000 on it. Well, one transmission and $2,200 later, it has about 147,800. It's a slow truck but reliable. The front seats are truly uncomfortable and need some type of better lumbar support. I worry about the transmission going out again and will be looking for tranny cooler. I just had the exhaust manifold replaced with the tranny last hear. The exhaust is leaking again!! It's not worth fixing. It will just have to hear the noise. This truck doesn't turn very well either. The gas mileage is horrible!! On the highway, you get about 263 miles on a full tank. City driving, you pray you get 180-200 miles on a full tank.
Heated seats and the sun roof. The reclining rear seats for long trips..
Fix the gas mileage, the exhaust and the transmission and you might give Toyota 4 Runner a run for the money.
I took my 1994 Nissan Pathfinder over from my brother a number of years ago and it now has nearly 200,000 miles on it. Other than regular maintenance and a cracked exhaust manifold (fixed for $400), I have not had a single problem. this truck is fantastic off road, great around town, and acceptable on the highway. I use it for work, commuting, and offroad driving in the moutains while biking.
A tough vehicle that takes a beating and doesn't blink. Awesome off road capability and great to drive around town.
Better front seats - they aren't comfortable on long trips.
I purchased this vehicle when it was
two years old and had 22K miles on it.
Since then, I have driven it roughly
90K miles over a variety of terrain and
it has been an excellent multi-purpose
vehicle for me.
In the eight years that I have owned
the vehicle, I have replaced the
battery, CV joints and belts along with
the regular scheduled maintanence, oil,
lube, tires, etc.
I have a hunting lease in Texas and the
vehicle performs flawlessly off-road.
The range of 4 wheel options combined
with the proper transmission settings
allows me to creep up and down areas
that other stock four wheel drive
vehicles would not go. The 31x10.5x15
tires gives me ample clearance over
Sedan like ride with the ability to
take me most anywhere off-road.
A built-in cup holder and because the
vehicle is underpowered, a K&N
airfilter helped improve some of the
performance. Some other performance
upgrades could be modifying the ECU
computer and a cat back exhaust system.
Other than that, this Pathfinder is an

(second hand), it is full of problem!
All type of problems and fix a couple
of times in some problems, e.g.: the
evaporator of A/C, altenator, stearing
wheel problems, electric connections,
belts, etc. And now, after 133,000
miles, the transmission quite working
well. I heard it is a manufacture

RELIABILITY! Transmission problem! Not
a confortable ride.
Has been extremely reliable. Granted,
the gas mileage is not car-like, but
if you want a car you shouldn't be
reading this. This is the second
pathfinder I have owned, my old one
sold with 150K and my current SE has
155k with simple regular maintenance.
O2 sensor went out on both trucks as
did the speedometer head. Other than
that, these things go, go and then
keep going. Great off road stability
with the stock 31x10.5's.
Reliability, comfort, driving ease,
