Love The Pathfinder - I Have Owned Several Of Them Since 1988. — I have owned this car ever since my return from the Philippines. I actually owned an a 1990 Terrano which is the Japanese version of the Pathfinder while I was in Mindanao, Philippines - great car there as well. I had also bought the 2 door Pathfinder in 1988 - It was a great SUV then as it is now...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great winter car; carries a lot of gear as I am an avid golfer, drummer and flea market enthusiast.

Cons: gas mileage but that is expected of this type of SUV

Awesome — The performance of this SUV is lacking. The 3.3L is under- powered and it feels as if it works to hard. The gas mileage isnt to bad however. I get about 19-20mpg around town, and for a vehicle that has 4x4 that is very good. The build quality of the vehicle is incredible! Ive never had anything go wrong with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4x4 plus gas mileage

Cons: rust

1997 Nissan Pathfinder — Manual tranny, no AC, no 4x4... after realizing traffic commuting, I had wished I paid extra for the automatic... also wished I had 4x4 so I could go 4 wheeling with buds back then.. * Performance - okay... * Build Quality - pretty good * Appearance - loved the boxy look of the old Pathfinders * Cost of Ownership - I don't remember any extraordinary repairs, etc. * Fun Factor - is this car fun to drive? Yeah, it was okay...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks good

Cons: wished I had bought it w/ 4x4 option

1997 Nissan Pathfinder — It's 12 yearrs old. I mean what would you expect for it. I would say that it is in a peak condition for being as old as it is, despite a few problems with the radiator and muffler it is pretty fuel efficient and runs well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It was free.

Cons: It's 12 years old.

The Wifes Suv — Dependable truck, but it can be costly to fix. Rust seems to be an issue but all in all it is solid. Rear suspension has some issues but it is fixable by your average guy with the right tools. This is my second one and if gas wasn;t so stinking expensive I'd upgrade to a newer one.

Pros: Solid Truck

Cons: Eh, seats I guess.

Smooth drive, steering wheel feels “small” though and I wasn’t hip on how the seat comes forward to get to the third row. Not convenient for moms who have kids that go in the back seat daily. If the ... Read More
