1997 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4dr SUV 4WD


I owned the vehicle for about 60K miles, not particularly fond of the comfort, and don't hit ice at 60 MPH in RWD only. Sold it at 140K, still going strong. The exhaust would rust out every two years, but that's all that I can complain about. Handled 6 inches of unplowed snow beautifully. If you prefer reliability over creature comforts, great vehicle, my third Nissan, would certainly buy another.

Best Features

Reliability, strong in snow.

Worst Features

I suggest other materials for interior seating, at least in the XE, base model. Gas mileage, but all the SUVs seem to have that complaint. Bumpy ride, but new shocks helped.
