2009 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had my path for a year and living here in Winnipeg Canada, I had noticed the exceptional power especially when driving in snow covered roads. The only problem is the third row seat (only good for kids) but overall, regardless of the poor gas mileage if your looking for a car that can race with a v8 yukon, a lighter v6 pathfinder can beat it!!!! (I'm telling you guys! I've tried it with a friend when we raced down I-29 North Dakota)


Worst Features

Third row seat legroom

2009 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned this car for 2 problem free years. It has been very reliable, comfortable, and worry free. It is big and heavy but that doesn't hurt the handling that much (I have upside wheels that help as well) but it does impact fuel economy. I routinely get around 16 mpg around town. I am happy with the purchase and would probably do it again.


Best Features

Love the music box and CF card reader on the LE model with Navigation.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy. Not so much slush in the transmission.

Review

I used this site to do research on my next purchase and it had a lot of great info. I feel I made a great choice in the Pathfinder, and I got a great deal on the one I purchased. Even this base model comes with so much. I changed the radio out and put fog lights on myself but other than that , it doesn't need anything else unless you want to Pimp your ride. I'm not going off road but I still have enough room and power to go over something if i need to and not get stuck. Gas mileage for me is good, because i don't drive all over town and hardly any hwy at all. i needed a larger vehicle to haul around active kids (3) but still feel cool driving


Best Features

keyless entry is nice, lots of space and flexibility, comfortable ride, love all the features that come with it


Worst Features

all radios need to at least play mp3 disc or have a ipod/mp3 aux connection built in.

Thrilled with my purchase. Not concerned about the lack of space for passengers as all my passengers are under the age of 7. Lots of fun for the kids. And super comfy for us in the front. Had a wonderful drive from North to South.


Best Features

Heated steering wheel, heated seats, steering wheel access to most things, bluetooth, rims, wheels... everything????


Worst Features

none so far
