1997 Nissan Pathfinder 4 Dr LE 4WD SUVReview

It Was My First Car And I Loved It — it was a solid car, my friends used to tool on it all the time even though i was constantly towing there cars or driving them to school because their car crapped out

Pros: looked nice, handled well for an SUV, was suprisingly quick

Cons: had alot of issues in its old age, emmisions, suspension, steering

Great Suv And Will Drive It Until It Falls Apart.... — I bought the car used in '07. It has some things that need to be worked on. I am doing them as I go along. It has power but an exhaust leak. It is a very dependable rig. This is the 2nd one I've owned. It's much nicer than the '95 I had before. Update Dec '12 - Still have the rig. Had the hood painted since it was peeling the clear coat. Looks good. Runs good. Have had some Mass Airflow Sensor issues. Still trying to get the idle to work right. Other than that, it never leaves me stranded and gets me where I'm going. With the new idle issue, I'm not getting the gas mileage that I did before, but will be working on that soon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfy and roomy.  Looks nice and like an SUV should not a hybrid station wagon like some others.

Cons: Gas mileage isn't the best.  Issues with the Mass Air Flow sensor and idle.

Nice Looking "suv" And Not The Crossover/minivan Look By Pecknecker
