2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


This has been a very good vehicle for us. Runs rings around the 99 Grand Cherokee we had before this Pathfinder. However in my 40 years of driving I have never had an exhaust manifold break. Not one but both broke on this SUV at 50,000 miles and the dealer wants $1200.00 to replace them. I feel this is not a normal situation and should have been replaced under the drivetrain warrenty. Besides this issue this has been a very reliable SUV, we travel with it alot and I have confidence where ever I go with it.

Best Features

Dependable. Excellent fit and finish. Very good power. Good road feel now that the original tires have been replaced.

Worst Features

Hey Nissan...replace the exhaust manifolds. They should last forever like on any other vihicle. The original Bridgestone tires were out and out dangerous after 20,000 miles.
