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


Love this SUV. A smooth ride that could induce car-sickness, a powerful engine, and conveniently-placed and thought-out controls make the car a gem. With regular all-season tires, holds the road in ice and snow, and stops on a dime if you're not driving like a drunken banshee. While 4WD can be taxing on tires, the Bridgestones wore out much too quickly - and were vulnerable to shoulder wear despite frequent rotation and balancing. Depending on driver height and seat position, blind spots (merging, etc.) can be a problem - encourage all your family members to test-drive before you buy.

Best Features

AWD,audio controls on steering wheel, CD changer, heated seats, power seat adjustment/memory,car-like handling, easy parking, excellent pick-up. Strong heating/cooling system that controls cabin temp quickly.

Worst Features

Needs better real-life MPG rating - this car sucks gas like nobody's business (with negligible performance differences between premium and regular gasolines). Ditch the Bridgestone tires-they wear out too quickly-20K miles. Mount spare INSIDE vehicle. Add a backing sensor. Engineer away blindspots.
