2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


With our '99 Toyota 4Runner breeching the 100K mark, it was time to look for a new, more modern SUV. Ride quality, 4- wheeling prowess, and functionality topped the list. The Pathfinder met each of those requirements as a whole better than nearly all of its competitors (and we looked at everything!). 1st and 2nd row seats offer good space and are supportive. The 3rd row is for humans under 5 feet. The 2nd row split works well for access to the 3rd row, but its reclining comfort is compromised by the center portion's non-adjust.. We hit the Jeep trails in Sedona where it proved itself a worthy 4x4. While comparable to our 4Runner, it's ride is far superior. Also more powerful and fuel eff.

Best Features

When you live in the Arizona heat, A/C is at the top of your list. Our LE was equipped with dual zone, climate controlled A/C for the front occupants and a separate unit for the rear that circulates via roof mounted vents rather than the center console. Also love:leather seats, engine, space, brawn.

Worst Features

Minimal: The dash has one too many textures in its vast array of geometric shapes. The doors, on the other hand, are too plain and could use better plastics. The amber gauges and illuminating surfaces have a cheapness about them. The rear suspension creates a nauseous movement on hi-speed corners.
