Great Buy — I love how it drives, it may be an SUV but it feels light like a car. The gas milage is ok, not to great but its not horrible. Pathfinders are built like tanks, my pathfinder has taken so much abuse and just smiled at me. Its very capable offroad, seems to float over mud. I expected a jeep wrangler to outperform but it needed a tow from the pathy. I plan on buying another pathfinder.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very Good/great Transportation — Not great gas mileage but acceptable. 99 was voted one of Nissan's best year for great mechanical reliability. Great handling in snow,rain and modest off road activity. Has a good set of running lights for fog and darkened wooded areas. Real roomy and spacious for trips: gear,sporting equipment and can easily carry or tow boats,campers,canoes, kyaaks,bikes, and trailers.

My Second Pathfinder — My first Pathfinder was a '95, which I ran for ten years before the frame rusted out. Its replacement, a '99 early model, is much more car-like, albiet a large, heavy car. It is strong and well built, with no frame to rust. After a year and a half with the '99, and all maintenance completed, I would not hesitate to drive this vehicle cross country.

Pros

All weel drive. Great Ride height.

Cons

High rollover risk (cant say i have.) So-so gas milege.

Cargo, Off Road, People Room. — The engine is well powered for the car, with nice gears and a short final drive (4.35?) to compensate for the weight. The fit an finish of the interior is superb. No part of the car has failed on me. 150000 miles, no chronic problems, save for a mysterious vibration i cant seem to locate. The ride is comfortable, and the suspension take bumps and dings very well. Speed bumps and tables are no match for struts on all wheels. I hit a speed table, got a foot of air, and still didnt bottom out the suspension. Ride height is great. Body leans on tight turns, but its not a sports car.

highway speed hills (mountain passes)

'99 Pathfinder, 4wd Le — I very much enjoyed my pathfinder. Nice interior, a little cramped in the back (but I didn't sit there), nice stereo (not compatable w/ ipod/iphone). At slow speeds, it worked really well on hills, however, it was a gutless wondering at highway speeds going over passes. If you're a flat-lander or will be in town w/ no significant climbs, a very nice vehicle. If highway passes, skiing, etc... consider something with a bit more guts than a 3.0L v6.

Great Family Vehicle Lots Of Room. Great For Trips Decent Off-road 4x4 And A Reliable Commuter — the appearance is decent. headlights are efficent for the year it was made. 4X4 system is virtually bulletproof and a great family vehicle. inside build is a little plasticy wouldn't recommend towing a whole lot. fair power not so great fuel mileage i average 14MPG in the city
