2002 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great SUV, if you're buying an SUV expect to get and pay for the gas mileage of an SUV (17 mpg avg). Rides smooth, excellent steering, most comfortable seats front and rear, good utility, 4 wheel drive can plow through anything, gusto V6, Bose sound system is tuned perfectly- sound is great, soft touch plastics, great safe SUV. I have experienced a couple rattles up on the dash but very minor, 02 sensors went out at 75000 ($400), and the muffler (catback, everything) replaced at 65000 miles because it failed on me ($500). otherwise, great vehicle - look into it.


Best Features

Powerful V6, big sunroof, ride, seats, seating position, steering, everything pretty much.

2002 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I don't think I've ever owned a vehicle that I love more than this one. It has all the options, other than leather, (but who needs leather, hah) and I've installed a satellite radio system.....For the money, you can't go wrong.


Best Features

Power sunroof.....CD changer....4 wheel drive.......Roominess.....


Worst Features

The only problem would be gas mileage, but for an SUV it still does very well, especially on long trips.....

Its a beast on and off the road and its reliable and has great pickup. Roomy! Stylish. I put a cattle grille and rear tail lamp guards on my silver pathfinder so it looks more rugged.

Its horsepower and its styling.

Review

I've had this 2 years. The main pro's are the excellent comfort, handling and reliability. It handles like a car, or the 4-runner. Checked out the Explorer, and this feels a lot safer cornering. Looks are very good, the Bose Sound system is excellent and it never has any issues. Mileage is average at 17 MPG for me. It has plenty power for overtaking, and is always just big enough to fit bikes, and camping gear or furniture. Overall - My only complaint is the gas mileage, which has improved on the newer model. This is a great SUV, and a lot better value than the 4-runner which enjoys somewhat of a cult status. Well worth the money.


Best Features

Looks, reliability, fantastic handling, comfort, sound system, interior design.


Worst Features

Gas Mileage, wheels on SE look cheap, LE rims are much nicer.
