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


This Car looks, handles and feels great and in 2001 it was
more powerful than 2001 Toyota 4Runner and more stylish. Engine got boosted to 240HP over very weak 168HP 3.3 liter. With that came a lots of MAF, O2,Crank position sensor failures. Use of premium fuel is more than recommended. Weak transmission and aggressive rust on under-body (save yourself and spray it prematurely if you can). Strut tower failures. Realistic fuel economy is 14city and 20 Hwy.

Best Features

Powerful engine, good handling, decent interior materials, classic styling,

Worst Features

reliability, excessive underbody rust, transmission, crumped rear seats, fuel economy should be better, faulty clock, engine sensors (MAF, O2, Crank position)
