Wish I hadn't and won't again.

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


It is not a well-built vehicle. Cheap plastic inside breaks, CD player kaput at 40k, washer fluid reservoir cracked and leaks out, fuel-sending unit/gauge out at 45k (Nissan hasn't included 05 in the recall of 06 and 08s -thanks for nothing- even though they know it's a defect), and now a problem with my transmission at 71k. Can't seem to get a specific diagnosis yet but I can guess what it is ---radiator leaking into the trans? Nissan hasn't paid for the fuel s.u. or recalled the defective part(s) leading to the trans failure. This was my 3rd Nissan. Time to trade and never buy Nissan again.

Best Features

7-seater feature, body design, overall handling (until transmission failure, of course)

Worst Features

Build with better parts.
