First SUV and loving it

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


I bought a 4x4 2002 Pathfinder LE. This
is the first SUV that I have owned. My
previous car was a 1992 Lexus GS300,
and I don't miss it. While the
Pathfinder is certainly not a Lexus the
ride is comfortable and the drive is
very simular to a car.

I have taking the Pathfinder off road
once up in Malibu and it was a rush -
after I got half way into it I realized
I was dinking around with a new car so
I slowed it down, but it was fun. The
Pathfinder was able to hadle the trails
very well.

The milage I have gotton around town is
about 14MPG and hwy has been about

I test drove just about everything else
out there and I am very pleased with
the decision so far.

Best Features

The overall feel and drive of the Pathfinder has been a pleasure. Sound system (Bose)is great.

Worst Features

My wife has a hard time closing the rear hatch (the new Ford Explorer has a good solution for that with a lower window opening if any Nissan folks are reading). Otherwise I have no complaints.
