Beast — I like being able to ride up high and the pathfinder is high enough but not too top heavy. the ride was very smooth once it was broken in, reliable (started everytime i needed it to even though i put 65,000 miles on it in 4.75 years, sturdy (got rear ended and the guys truck was smashed up pretty bad and the only damage to my car was the hatchback got stuck closed and the rear bumper was pushed down.

Good Reliable Car. — The 2002 year of the Nissan pathfinder brings a more refined look to the lines somewhat bland looks, there is also an increase in performance. there is plenty of power under the hood that will quickly get you passed any car on the road. there is also plenty of torque to pull a boat or camper. Overall this is a good long lasting car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

I Fell In Love With This Car! — I purchased this car in January 2002. I was in love with the look of this car for a year before I actually purchased one. It served me well for 6 years.

Very Relieable, Quick For An Suv — This car was so much fun, and I entirely regret selling it. It was moderately quick, and would easily outperform most other vehicles in its class. Never had a problem with this car.

This Is A Great Dependable Truck And Family Car. — This car has been a great transportation for my family for the last 10 years. Both dependable and reliable with ton of power when needed. 4WD is very easy to use and seamless when activated with the twist of a button on the dash panel. BOSE Factory radio is great and even after 12 years everything works as it should.

Pros

Good get around car. Rugged enough for off roading and powerful enough to pull my tear drop trailer.

Cons

poor gas mileage, it has some quirks: my rear hatch door lock seems to malfunction with left turns: the latch slips and the "red" door open tail light comes on and off. Also the lights on the automatic door remote does not work (this is connected to the rear door latch issue.

Good Car For "active Get Outdoors Person" — I like my Pathfinder. It is comfortable with good visibility for around town and rugged enough to go on moderately rough dirt roads. With my Thule roof box i have plenty of storage. It is small enough for a quick hand wash.

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