2005 Nissan Pathfinder XE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Had my pathfinder for 18 months now and have found the engine to be noisier than my dad's Kia Sorento. There are a lot more rattles and squeaks coming from all over which is strange considering it doesn't go off road. Towing is good for my 17 ft boat and it is a fairly comfortable ride except for the noisy engine, rattles and squeaks. 3rd row seating is also hard to access. I've been to 2 dealerships in Miami looking for good service, but haven't found any yet - extremely disorganized and low service emphasis. The labor and oil changes are also expensive at $40 for an oil change. My wife's Toyota gets better service from Toyota dealership. Would buy a Toyota just because of the service.

Best Features

Powerful V6 engine, comfortable suspension and nice rugged look.

Worst Features

Build quality needs improving with the rattles, squeaks and noisy engine. Better access is needed for 3rd row seating. Nissan dealerships need more quality and service training and need to be more competitive in their pricing as maintenance through the dealership is expensive comparatively speaking.
