2008 Nissan Pathfinder LE-V8 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Initially, I loved my pathfinder. The v8 was so powerful, the bose sound is amazing and all the gadgets and luxury are great. However, after about 2 weeks, I noticed the rattles and I mean everywhere. When I hit a bump I feel it in the wheel and in the frame. The doors rattle the dash rattles bad! I took it off road and it was like driving a covered wagon. The rattles are so noticeable. I had a 2000 pathfinder with 100k on it and nothing like this. It was solid as a rock. The a patty is a great highway car and great 0-60 speed, which is outstanding. However, i bought an suv to use for off road and mtn sports. It has low clearance with the bumpers and it rattles way too much. It

Best Features

Great speed and towing. I loved the shiftable transmission. The technology and luxury is great! However, the off road is disappointing. This car is more like a sportscar/crossover versus an suv. You feel bumps on and off road

Worst Features

This car confuses me. It can't decide if its a sports car or an SUV.I love the power but hate the structural problems. For a $40,000 vehicle it should hold up and it does not. The rear seat is too small and the 3rd row is a joke. I traded my patty in for an xterra, no rattle and it can take the bump
