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


Our second Pathfinder. All reg maint done at dealership. Had to replace O2 sensors at 34000 miles, and second one at 52000. At 61000, dealership said I had a bad catalytic converter and since we had just passed (by two weeks) the 8 year ownership mark, they refused to fix it. First two repairs were $700 each, cat converter estimate is $1000. Have had engine knock for 2 years that dealership couldn't isolate/repair. Knowing that the sensors had gone out, and there was an engine knock, they should have checked cat converter. We will fix this, sell it, and go back to buying Toyotas.

Best Features

Interior is nice. stereo controls on steering column is nice.

Worst Features

Recall the cat converters. Change head rest design in back seats so easier to drop seat flat.
