Cons

gas consumption

Almost A Monster Truck! — Nice driving, not good gas consumption. It jumps a little bit... but it is OK. Interiors are OK. Cost is relative high mostly because of the gas consumption. Is it fun to drive? hell yeah! high power, stamina, and level.

Great Family Car For Great Price — Excellent condition, platinum package offers all options from sun / moon roof, heated seats to 6 CD Changer and cassette! Low miles at 123,000 runs and drives great! Easy to drive, perfect for a small family. I used it for commuting back and forth to work.

Great Choice — Nissan is a great company and this car has had absolutely no problems since we got it in 2004. If it we my own car i would of gotten something more sporty like a prelude, but the brakes and handling are very good.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — One of the most maintenance free cars I have ever owned. You won't be disappointed with this car. Plenty of room, plenty of power in this 240hp 3.5cc engine. The fun factor is there for getting to the outdoors. It is a beautiful car as well.

Pros

Still looks great, considering it's a relatively ancient design.  Climbs with ease and when cleaned up is appropriate for a night out.  Like a mountain goat in a tuxedo.  

Cons

Gas mileage doesn't hold a candle to modern CUV's, but on par with it's contemporaries.  Also, the backseat has very limited legroom.

Super Fun To Drive. — A good old fashioned SUV that handles any weather or terrain you can throw at it. The LE Platinum has all of the creature comforts of the era, including leather seats and 6 disc changer. Lack of modern infotainment, reverse camera, etc. only enhance the fun factor of this Pathfinder. A rare blend of tough and classy.

Pros

Feels solid and has never gotten me stuck off road or in bad weather. I feel very confident when driving it I'll always get to my destination.

Cons

Wish the back seats were bigger and more power when accelerating.

Great Vehicle! — Great vehicle! It looks better than most new SUVs on the road today and it has great handling. I never had any doubts that it won't get me and my family from point A to point B. That includes off paved roads! It's a very solid and reliable vehicle. Yes, sometimes I wish it was bigger and had more power accelerating, but overall, I'm very happy with it. Mine has every option imaginable (Platinum edition) making it even more of an enjoyable ownership experience.

Pathfinder — When you really step on the gas it flies, and the engine note is amazing. Braking is also very good. However cornering in it has become less entusiastic, it seems to unitentionally slide through turns. Build quality is great, the outward appearance is great except for a scuff that i put on the bumper reversing into my driveway. Gas mileage isn't amazing but it isn't exactly horrible for something its age (about 11 city 15highway).
