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


This is vehicle steeped in its own tradition, one that has ebbed and flowed stylistically and mechanically with the various SUV trends. Simply put, it is a very well-built, reliable vehicle that has had a few sputters along the way - in 03-04 it was a bit of an identity crisis, with two main flaws: poor fuel economy and bad rear seating. However, it makes up for it with excellence in other areas. Recently I passed a semi-truck on a snowy road at 120km/hr, something I just wouldn't do with every vehicle - it's got plenty of zip, traction, overall quality. Just think twice about how much that back-seat is used by adult passengers, and be willing to pay 20% more for gas than a car.

Best Features

Power, four wheel drive quality, overall quality, reliability, tradition, non-trendiness, quietness, heats up nicely

Worst Features

Rear seating is not adequate for most adults; fuel economy is below average; has a bit of a bumpy ride
