2008 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I read lots of reviews and felt comfortable with this truck, but my transmission does the same thing as some of the others here. I wish I would have dug further. The left passenger door handle is broken (I've had the truck less than two weeks) and there are several interior squeaks and rattles. I was spoiled with a 97 4runner that was bulletproof (not a squeak), but the current generation is late in its design cycle, so I steered away. I also had a great experience with my 01 Maxima, which led me to stay with Nissan. I have my doubts about the longevity of this Pathfinder, and I hope there's a recall soon for the transmission. Time will only tell if I made a mistake straying from the 4runner.

Best Features

Back up camera. Power. Better looks than the 4runner

Worst Features

Stock stereo is adequate at best. Transmission rough between 35-50 mph. Tighter interior needed. Homelink should be standard on SE. No lockable gascap? Are you kidding?(Something you don't really notice until it's too late.)
