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


Review

The reason I purchased the Pathfinder
was that it had the best acceleration
of all of the other SUV's I test-drove.
Although I enjoy my Pathfinder, I miss
the feeling of driving my old sports
car. If I had a family, this would be
the best thing to have if I was limited
to buying an SUV or mini-van.


Best Features

My favorite feature the interior. I the Leather was tough and easy to take care of.


Worst Features

The back seats were not as comfortable as other SUV's I rode in. I don't find that too disturbing, considering the fact I don't sit there that often. I enjoy driving my Pathfinder too much to let just anyone take the wheel.

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


Review

SE model with 5-speed manual feels like
a sports car. The SE has stiffer
suspension and very little body roll Be
aware that the 6 CD Bose system cannot
be changed to aftermarket without
replacing all of the speakers too. FUEL
ECONOMY is os bad that I am considering
trading in for an AWD car. My only
quality complaint is the paint on the
body plastics. chips from rocks lead to
huge areas of flaked paint with just
hose washing. If fuel was less
expensive, I would love the Pathfinder
a lot more.


Best Features

Power, 5-Speed manual, reliability, styling, handling.


Worst Features

Fuel economy and ability to use 87 octane fuel.

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


Review

I have been very pleased with my
Pathfinder ever since I purchased it!
Most of all I am happy with the
power, reliability{We have had ours
over three years and not one problem}
and the way it rides like a car and
not a truck. If it was just a little
bigger it would be perfect. I would
buy another one in a minute, even with
a growing family like ours!


Best Features

I really like the power it has. Also, because of the size it's very easy to park. Again, the reliabilty is a biggy especially when you have a baby.


Worst Features

Even though the size can be a plus, with a growing family like ours the space could be a little bigger.

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


Review

I can't say enough good things about
our 2001 Pathfinder. We were skeptical
trading in a 1999 4Runner. This
pathfinder Wins HANDS DOWN. Safe,
nimble handling, much better gas
mileage than the Toyota. We Just Love
it. Two kids in car seats rinding in
the back seat now, Golden Retriever in
the way back. Two Kayaks on the roof.
The Power and Handling are key. Great
Feel for the road. The reliability is
BULLETPROOF. My husband is on his 3rd
Maxima and he prefers to drive the
Pathfinder AKA the "4WD Maxima"
Cheap Gas does not affect the power.


Best Features

THE ENGINE! Auto 4WD never slips. Handleing highway and off road. Climate Control, 6 disc in dash changer.


Worst Features

Drivers Window is slow in Cold Weather. Would like to see the back seat set back more - to give more leg room for car seats.
