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


Overall my initial impression of this
vehicle is very good. I looked at the
Toyota Highlander and Chevy
TrailBlazer. As a past Super Chevy
sportster it was hard not to go with
the Chevy but the reliability concerned
me. The highlander was a minivan
dressed to look like a SUV. The
Pathfinder was a true truck buy didn't
ride or handle like one. I only have
two issues at this point. First, there
appears to be excessive play in the
drive train. Second, the Bose stereo is
underpowered and has disappointing
sound quality. I am not a radio blaster
but you need to hear the radio when
your on the road with the windows down.
The in dash 6 CD changer is nice.

Best Features

Great low end power and torque. Tows a trailer flawlessly. Steering wheel mounted radio controls (w/ Bose system).

Worst Features

Better protect the radiator / A/C condenser coil. It is to open to rocks etc. Transmission / Transfer Case is sloppy / has too much play. Upgrade the stereo. Bose used to mean something special. They should make it that way once again. I will ahve to have it upgraded aftermarket.
