Great Looking Suv With Plenty Of Power — Great looking vehicle with plenty of power. Drives more like a car than an SUV. LE version has numerous options including memory seat, heated leather seats, cruise control and radio controls on steering wheel. The gas mileage is okay but this is typical for most SUV's.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.)

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.

Work Of Beauty. — This car= love. i have had so much fun with this.Runs like a top and never needed a repair. Gas mileage sucks...but hey its an suv. This is an all around beautiful car. Great power and acceleration. The only problem I had was finding the oil filter....it's in a horrible spot.

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.
