Cons

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).

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.

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.

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.

How it never has any problems

Cons

its kinda hard to park

25

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.

nice driving, high power

Cons

gas consumption

25

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.

Pros

Nice interior, BOSE sound, wheels and body matched nicely

Cons

Weak V6, brakes could not stop, bad gas mileage for V6

Numbero Tres — Got the Pathfinder when my VW fell apart. It was an okay vehicle. Rode well, V6 power a little on the weak side, and it felt heavy, brakes had a hard time stopping it, actually got in an accident because of it.
