Pros

Space, driving position, visibility, plows thru snow n mud with ease, cargo space, third row is small but folds down and nice in a pinch, torquey motor with descent power, handles heavy loads/ towing well.

Cons

Stock brakes are a joke! Rear end suspension is soft and sags under load. Sucks down the gas though.

I Would Buy Again. — My Pathy is a bull, with a good seat and driving ergonomics. A true SUV, yet capable family cruiser. I'd buy it again if they still made this style. Gas mileage ain't so hot, but is bearable considering size and capability off road.

Love It And Wish I Had A Newer One — Overall, this is a great vehicle. Family and pet friendly. It also makes vacations truly relaxing because you do not have to worry about having enough space for your luggage and for your family. It is also very road safe.

Great vehicle, no major issues!  Used for back and forth to work and family vacations.  Room enough for two women's suitcases and two men's suitcases!!  No issues hooking up bike rack.  Over 130K+ miles and still going strong!

Cons

Fuses seem to blow when using cell phone charger.

2006, Good Year For Nissan Pathfinder — This vehicle was purchased for my wife. At the time, we didn't want another Mini-van, so this fit the family perfectly. It's been on family vacations and multiple lacrosse tournaments over the past 7-8 years, ... up and down the east coast, never any doubt about its dependability.

Pros

"Right" size for my needs/usage.

Cons

"Sucks" is too strong a term but I wouldn't mind having the rear camera view that vehicles newer than mine now have.

2006 Nissan Pathfinder — I bought the vehicle because I wanted an SUV that didn't have that "soccer Mom" look to it. The Pathfinder had just enough of an aggressive look for my tastes. I got a good deal and in 8 years it's given me very few problems. If the new style didn't look so "curvy", I'd buy another one. :o)

Very Solid, Reliable Truck In An Suv Body — i love the 4x4 and the smooth ride. i also like the bose stereo/ speakers and the third row seating really comes in handy with the family. i really like the way the car is built except the interior could be a little less palstic.

Check Out This Vehicle — I am this second owner of this car. It has been flawless. Synthetic oil changed by myself everytime. Commuted to Sarasota daily and that is the reason for the miles. Totally fun to drive but don't need SUV anymore. Don't let the mileage drive you away. Seats 7 people.

Reliable Truck — Great Handling truck with independent suspension, enough power with a 4.0 liter engine. The truck feels like heavy and safe and have no complains. This truck is fun to drive specially on on the snow. The traction control works like a charm.

Great Value For Money To Buy But Not If You Don't Have A Vehicle/fuel Allowance — Performance - Good acceleration for a big vehicle, braking is not too sound but maybe because of the body mass, handling is fair. Build quality - Strong and robust. Good off-road vehicle for the whole family Appearance - Aggresive lines outside with a well finished look and trim. Canteen Green colour compliments the type of vehicle Cost of ownership - Heavy on Juice and the 60 000 km service. Fun factor - Great open road vehicle with amples of space for packing, camping and transporting up to 7 passengers with a good off-road capability
