Awesome Suv — This is a very good SUV. For a used car, it's actually pretty good. It runs good, it's good on gas, and it's really smooth. I also love that it has a lot of pep So it can run. I Love it. It's a great SUV and it performs well.

Has Been Very Reliable — Except for one problem with the pipe to the rear seat air conditioner, the pathfinder has been trouble free.

Pros

Basically it's an SUV with the space to compete with larger SUVs that seat 7-8 but much easier to drive in the city or park in smaller spots. The interior is easy to configure between massive cargo space and 3 rows of seats.

Cons

The compact size (built on a small track chassis) results in having to pick between the full seating capacity and large cargo space. With the third row down there is a sizable trunk. But with the third row up, there is only about 1 foot between the gate and the seat. The gas milage leaves quite a bit to be desired. About 17mpg avg. Milage though, is the price you pay for having a truly reliable engine.

Would Love To Drive This Pf For The Next 280k Miles, Family Just Out Grew It... — The PF is a well thought out, properly engineered machine. There is not a lot in the way of frills here, but there is plenty of strength and reliability to go around. It has a very attractive body, the interior is surprisingly roomy and convenient (ignoring the third row), it has a good deal of power for a 4.0L V6. It can get through unexpected weather or terrain but would not be the ideal off-roader. Gas milage is ok...I truly believe that there is a lot of over emphasis on milage. Many people are paying higher prices for less reliable, less capable vehicles that will need replacement much sooner. Here is a 17mpg 2005 PF (yes lame milage rating). But it will run forever with minimal maintenance cost. Certainly past 300,000 if proper maintenance is continued.

Primary Use: Family transportation
