2003 Nissan Pathfinder SE Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Great Ride, except that it needs better
fuel economy and more rear room. But
for the amount of power you're getting
the fuel is i guess OK. But definitely
more room in the back.


Best Features

POWER!!!


Worst Features

Fuel, Rear Room

2003 Nissan Pathfinder LE Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I only buy Nissans I have owned 8 of
them, this is my second pathfinder. I
love the absolute instant power that
you get by stepping on the
accelerator. The interior fit and
finish is great. The only downfall was
that My dealer stunk...Still waiting on
him to call me for my free pin stripes
it has been 8 months. Stay away from
Suntrup Nissan in St Louis


Best Features

LE interior, Bose Sound system and we got the dealer installed DVD/VCR


Worst Features

Gas Mileage is horrific

2003 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This SUV needs traction control.Spun
tires an intersections with the front
half of the vehicle in the way of
oncoming traffic many times.
Also doesn't handle well on wet roads.
Was very fast but almost too fast for
what it was (a light rear wheel drive
truck) Used the 4WD in the rain.
Enjoyed the truck at times and thought
it was fun and sporty to drive but
didn't feel secure in it. Didn't hold
the road well.
Also not roomy enough for our small
family of 3 plus dog. Gas mileage wasn't
great either for such a small truck.
Just got rid of it after 7 months and
moved on to an '02 Explorer. Much
different ride. Won't miss the Pathfinder.


Best Features

Bose 6 CD stereo, climate control


Worst Features

Traction control, bigger backseat

Review

Shoulda done more homework: We were
taken by the performance,
responsiveness, and sporty look of the
Pathfinder, but quickly came to realize
that the back seat and cargo areas are
skimpy, and the ride
is...well...jumpy? The V6 is fun, but
combine that with some mediocre rubber
and no Traction Control, and pulling
out into a wet intersection during
heavy traffic can get dicey...


Best Features

Great V6, nice Bose soundsystem.


Worst Features

Traction Control (which I think is now an option?), better tires, more room...
