2001 Nissan Pathfinder SUV LE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Ni 2001 Nissan Pathfinder is truly a great truck. I'm a performance oriented person and this truck does not disapoint. It's fun to drive, handles well, has good brakes, and its acceleration is sweet (240HP). Looking back, I should have opted for the navigation system. its reliability has been solid. I had the radiator replaced after the warranty ran out, otherwise it has been very reliable. I would recommend it as a used car purchase.


Best Features

Performance, visibility, stereo/cd player, power seats, and leather interior.


Worst Features

It is very thirsty, the rear seat room is poor, I'm 5-8 and drive with the seat all the way back..so if you're much taller, it may be tight. The rear doors could open further, putting our baby in his seat takes a bit of body contorting.

2001 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Have had this pathfinder for over a year
now and it has been great. Has been
extremely reliable, not a single
problem. Performance from 3.5 is great,
gas mileage hasnt been that bad about
17-18 mpg mixed driving around town, of
course im not a lead foot. Its an SUV
afterall. Paint has held up well, still
looks like it is new. Overall the seat
fabrics, materials and fit and finish
are well above average when compared to
others. AC is great, especially with hot
Vegas summers. Handles like a car not
like a truck. Does quite well on semi
nasty offroad trails. Is very
comfortable on long highway trips.


Best Features

reliability, VQ 3.5 engine, smooth, quiet and acceleration is great, BOSE six disc audio system sounds great, cargo space, seat comfort, car like handling, offroad ability


Worst Features

four wheel disc brakes, better gas mileage, good for SUV ,use 87 octane gas not 91 or 89, gotta pay the price for the power I guess, easier fold down of rear seats, easier to change your own oil, some cheap plastic interior pieces, just being nitpicky

2001 Nissan Pathfinder SUV LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Vehicle is fun to drive, ride is truck-
like. Assembly was top-notch, but
quality of parts is disappointing.
Reliability is dismal, it has a great
engine but everything else has been
poor quality. Rear suspension
problems and failures, electronics
(six O2 sensors in 3 years, cd changer
died 1 month out of warranty), brakes
squeal, leather color flakes off, you
name it. Vehicle spends as much time
in the shop as it does on the road.


Best Features

Electronic all-wheel drive, power sunroof, Bose stereo


Worst Features

Smoother ride, auto locks, improve parts quality.

Less hard plastic. Better gas mileage. Rear seats that slide back and forth. Rear window that rolls down ala 4Runner.
