From "Nearly Flawless" to "Major Flakes"

2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


My first review was published at 2 yrs, 23K miles titled "Nearly Flawless". 3 years and almost 30K miles later the drivetrain performance still is. However this vehicle has developed a Major paint problem - the paint is flaking off the top of the lift gate and starting on the roof. I lose about 4 sq inches every time I wash! Nothing environmental or damaged and I am vigilant with maintenance. Just defective paint as far as I can tell. Nissan's response was basically "Sorry, it's out of warranty". Unfortunate, because it's an otherwise fantastic vehicle. I was a big fan and now they've lost a customer.

Best Features

Ultra-reliable, great driving dynamics

Worst Features

Good grief - use better quality paint!
