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


This is my third Pathfinder. The first - a 1996 was very nice, but alittle plain in interior aspects for the purchase price. The next, a 2000 was better in that aspect; but after a traffic accident which totaled it, a 2001 Pathfinder was bought to replace it. Except for the weak bumper system, the SUV, in my opinion, is more elegant than most others & handles pretty well in most weather; need to watch for ice etc. since the SUV is larger, I find that it wants to slide more easily. Gas mileage needs to be worked with; about 15 miles per gallon highway. Interior noise can be high - something that I would think would be better in a vehicle like this; wind & tire/road noise especially.

Best Features

Appearance is very nice. Like the outside lighting; lights up the road better over the previous year models.

Worst Features

Front/Rear Bumper Systems Are Whimpy; need to be re-designed to handle minor bumps and scrapes etc. better. Even simplest taps cause major damage. Idler pulley broke off the engine while driving & Nissan would not repair it under the warranty since the part was not there; really not fair service.
