    I enjoyed this car, although never felt completely safe in it. It was loud. Mechanically, I never had any problems and I enjoyed taking it off-road immensely. It performed best off-road in my opinion. It was a solid car and I drove it for 10 years without any major problems.
    Power Ranked 1999 Lexus RX 300 better.

    We Love Our Beast — Bought this car used and has served us well with minimal maintenance. It is great in the unplowed snow covered roads. Overall a great SUV but the rust will eat the car alive as everything else is still in working condition

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Cheap maintenance and awesome 4WD

    Cons: Bad gas consumption

    Very Good Vehicle, Highly Reliable. Just Keep Up On The The Frame. — It was a good vehicle, i recently sold it. The only thing that was wrong about it was that they did not do drain holes for that frame that year so they rusted out. Just like mine did. Luckily i was able to sell it for $600. The performance was great it hauled ass everytime i burried the pedal it would take right off even with 220,000 on it. Other than that nissan is my number one choice from now on.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's good in the snow, and the motors are bulletproof

    Cons: Frame Rusts out.

    A Great Car. The 1995 Nissan Pathfinder Xe — This car was a very good and rugged car. It's made out off all steel and NO plastic body parts. It has a great engine, even though the engine is known to fade in the power category, and it didnt fade that much for me. Not a very attractive car, but i didnt mind it. It has ABS. It could still leave a little bit of rubber on the road 13 years later. It had handling like new after a got new bearings, UV joints, and Tyrods for it it sayed strong when i had it. Great for off roading. Not very bad gas. about 18 MPG. Frame was just beginning to rust when i had 2 get rid of it, only 2 spots and it hadn't even rusted all the way through. Never had too many problems with it. and it had 180,000 miles on it. It was totaled in a pretty bad accident in early 2008. If it wasnt in that accident, I'd probably still be driving it.

    Pros: Very strong car, Had only a few minor problems that most older cars had, Great in snow and off roading, Not a very heavy car

    Cons: Engine fades, Frame rust, no air-bags, Not a very pretty car, engine only sounds nice and smooth under 100,000 miles usually, manifold ticks when you step on the gas (sometimes)

    1995 Nissan Pathfinder Xe V6 4wd — For the price that i paid its really nothing to complain about. I really think that the performance is half decent it picks up quiet fast, although the engine revs a little bit too fast. Braking isnt good given the fact it has no ABS on it. And for the handling it like most SUV's of its sizes rolls in corners, but to be expected. The build quality is really not to bad a couple things are weird about it and arent very straight forward, but i would get into detail... considering it has 217,000kms on it and shifts perfectly whether cruising through gears or racing through them, the engine doesnt knock and doesnt emit any type of smoke at all, most surprisingly of all the AC still works and has never been serviced in its life. All in all it runs better then most newer vehicles that have half the km's of mine. The down side of this vehicle is its looks, I find it really looks ugly, and is really made with cheap steel for its skin, cause it rusts a lot (I took care of that with some body putty) what really strikes me to be the most ugly about it is its front end with small rectangular lights that really throws the look right off. The interior is nothing special with very plain looks and use of alot of inexpensive plastics, but at least the controls and dials are not to encumbersen like some others I have, favorite thing is the reclining rear seats that you dont see alot of in other vehicles always wondered why... The gas mileage is really terrible, at least for me but maybe its because of my foots density, gets about 400km to the tank but this is mostly caused because of its high reving engine 100km/h is about 2500 rpm. Also to get out of first gear i usually have to get up to 4000rpm. This truck is extremely fun to drive because of its light front end great for little burnouts and fishtailing in the rain, also im never afraid of taking an SUV off the road and going throught the mud, extremely capable, this vehicle is tough as hell. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun first vehicle and is not afraid of putting in gas, also a person that doesnt want to really turn heads because its really not the most attractive looking vehicle but at least its reliable, and for me thats number one for any vehicle.

    Pros: Reliability, strength, and capability

    Cons: Gas mileage, and looks

    Reliable Worker — The 1995 Nissan Pathfinder may lack a V8 or major towing capacity but it's a highly able SUV based upon a true truck platform that doesn't fail to deliver.

    Pros: 4 Wheel Drive, Acceptable Performance, Sturdy

    Cons: Not sporty, bad gas mileage, not very spacious

    Great Off-road, Expensive Problems — This was my first vehicle. I always loved the rugged looks, but was unaware of the transmission and frame problems. The thing could off-road better than most Jeeps, had decent acceleration. Rust holes (very large) are common under the back seats, frame rust was a huge problem. Something with the design on the 95's cause the transmissions to last very short times. This was on it 2nd one, and it went out on the way to school. Wouldn't recommend it unless you have money for repairs.

    Pros: Great off-road vehicle, power shift mode

    Cons: horrible transmissions (was going on its 3rd w/143,000 miles), bad frame rust (fist size holes)

    Older, Ugly... Kinda Crappy. — This may be my future car. It's a smaller SUV, so it's not a crazy gas-guzzler, although it is no hybrid. It's really similar to an 80s Chevy Blazer. My mom's replaced lots of parts, and now the frame is rotting out.

    Pros: Lots of room in the trunk, lots of foot room in both front and back seats.  Smaller SUV for people who don't want Hummer-sized gas-guzzlers.

    Cons: Replaced many parts, rusting everywhere, rusting-out frame.  Ugly three holes in the front of the hood.
