1998 Nissan Pathfinder (new Stablemate) — Haven't owned the Pathfinder long, but so far it's been great. I've had it on two road trips and it's helped a couple of friends move. Really looking forward to testing out the 4wd when I can get it off road and if we get any snow in NC this year. So far, it's been good. 3.3 L V-6 has good power (for a near 2 ton SUV). Drives well for a big vehicle. From the little off roading I've done so far, it's been great. Looking forward to continuing to drive this vehicle and adding a trailer hitch. Decent gas mileage for a big, heavy 1998 SUV (17 mpg)

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Great rig.  Looking forward to driving (and writing) more about it.

Cons: Difficulty seeing left rear when merging.  Gas mileage isn't great (17 mpg), but it's a big SUV.

1998 Nissan Pathfinder 4 Dr LE SUVReview

One Amazing Product — No long in my hands because it has been passed to another relative it's been 12 years with this SUV in my family and I've used it on/off. Only once could be consider that a mayor repair was made to it but the engine hasn't been opened yet for anything. Its Nissan yes and its a good product. I still see older models running on the street with no problem and this could be an SUV you would want to have for a long time if your intentions is to keep it over 5 or 6 years. The interior is very nice and at same time you can use it in the city but also in the outdoors if needed. Puerto Rico is a sunny island but sometimes heavy rain can fall anytime and depended where you are floods can happen. This SUV lets my family and I drive it with no problem. Nissan Pathfinder damn good product.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 230K thousand miles and its still running very nicely and hope to put in some more miles in it. 10 years with us, 10 years...thats a serious relationship we have and one that will keep living for a long time. Love how durable it is, no signs of rust and strong. Still intimidates the other compact cars that stand next to it at the stop light.

Cons: I wish the rare suspension was better and well it is know with the new models but for the time it came out most SUV suspensions were like this. Also it has to much liter for the little horsepower it has but again something that the new models.
