1997 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD


We have had this vehicle for almost 2
years now. It had 50K miles when we
purchased it, but I felt comfortable
because it was a Nissan. We have had a
few problems: replacing struts & strut
plates (I have never taken it off-
road), cracked manifold, replaced
brakes twice, and info. lights in
cluster sometimes go off for no
mechanical reason.

Best Features

I really like the sunroof and the 4WD has been a help during Oklahoma snow storms.

Worst Features

Nissan knew about the manifold problem, and they designed a new one. However, they never sent out a recall notice. I only found this out by calling Nissan Headquarters myself. Honesty with consumers would be a nice change.Heartier, more well designed struts would be nice.
