Powerful 4x4 On And Off Road.. — The 2001 Nissan Pathfinder is one of the most reputable vehicles on and off road. Nissan spent a load of money on technology to keep this vehicle and its sister ( The Infiniti QX4 ) compatible with the leading small utility vehicles out there.

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

Pros: Good dependable Vehicle ,

Cons: Gas Mileage is not the best but power and dependability over look that.

Great Vehicle. — I loved how it was able to handle with ease any weather conditions from downpours of rain to white out condition blizzards. It is very dependable even in temperatures below zero. Overall very satisfied with the purchase of this SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4WD, comfort, room, ride, safety

Cons: The gas consumption could be better for a V6.

Great Family Car — This has been a great reliable family car, especially in the bad weather we have here in colorado and for trips to the foothills. There is plenty of room for the family camping gear. This car feels very safe when driving and handles well even in icy conditions.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great vehicle for Colorado climate and terrain.good space for family camping trips.
Very smooth to drive
Heated front seats and leather front and rear seats make this a very comfortable car
Excellent heating cooling system

Cons: None

I Bought This Suv With 10 Miles On The Odometer. It Has Brought Nothing But Joy, — I've had this Pathfinder for 11 years and researched copiously before purchasing it. Despite the price of gas, I constantly took 'rides' after giving it a good cleaning; I just enjoyed being in it. If this vehicle got 22 miles per gallon, I would never consider parting with it. But that is the trade off for the Pathfinder's performance; getting on any entrance ramp - even going uphill - is done with authority. Breaking is spot on, and I have had no trouble even on the occasional panic stop. Just use genuine Nissan parts! It hasn't rusted (it is garaged every night), I NEVER worry about being stuck ANYWHERE, and have had enough cargo space to pack two of my daughters off to college without having to put them (my daughters) on the roof rack. Owning this vehicle has been a honeymoon. But like all marriages, the priorities changes. I have no regrets. If you can find a 2001 - 2003 in good condition, you can't go wrong.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A very sure footed and responsive truck, with lots of power and poise. I never felt 'out of control' even on icy roads - as long as I was in 4WD with good rubber on all four corners.  
And it just looks good; one big reason I did not trade up when Nissan changed the body style.
I have driven thru nearly 16 inches of snow on un-plowed roads with no worries.
The heated seats are a joy on a frosty day, and the A/C will leave you frosty on 100 degree days. I leave the temp at 70 all year around.

Cons: Truck could have better gas mileage. It has gotten better with age, and when I stay around 60 mph (instead of where it performs best - about 80), I am seeing about 350 miles per tank.

I have replaced all four O2 sensors and the throttle position sensor. Did the O2s have to go one right after the other?

The stock radio stinks! I couldn't take it anymore. Purchased a Pioneer unit - which unleashed the speakers potential.

Rev limiter kicks in at 105 mph, if anyone is interested. Not much of a con; This truck could travel much faster - but what would be the need??

Lastly; a 39 foot turning radius?  Please.

None of these cons would prevent me from buying this truck again.

Goldie The Pathfinder — Love my Pathfinder, I bought it in June with 180 thousand miles on it. The lease on my Accord was up and I just wanted something to get back and forth to school in that I would not have to dig out of my street in the winter when I was leaving for school in the morning. Love it so far, can't hardly wait for our snowy winter. The truck has great acceleration, corners very well and has the smoothest ride of any SUV that I have owned.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 185k on the original engine and still going strong.

Cons: Gas mileage

My Pathfinder :d — Love this car for its looks but I'm sick of driving an SUV. The car runs pretty smooth, not perfect but decent. The build quality is weak (first cylinder misfire), gas mileage sucks but looks sexy inside (leather) and out.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking car, smoothish ride, sunroof.

Cons: First Cylinder misfire, Top Heavy, 6 Cylinders.

Slip 'n' Slide — The Nissan Pathfinder seems like a fairly middle-of-the-road car. It has good acceleration and braking power, and steering is fairly responsive. However, it peels-out very easily due to an extremely touchy gas pedal, it will spin out if the street is wet, and the gas mileage is lacking. Seating can be a little cramped, as the back bench has very little leg-room. Also, on my car (a 2001), the CD player has gone ka-puts to the extent of replacing.

Pros: accelleration, visibility, Bose radio

Cons: gas mileage, traction, leg room

2001 Nissan Pathfinder — We had driven several SUVs, such as the Durango, Expedition, Blazer, Trailblazer, and Rodeo. But it wasn't until we drove the Pathfinder that we finally found the right vehicle. We instantly impressed with the drive, the power of the 3.5L V6 and the looks of the vehicle. Once we had driven the Pathfinder, we knew we found the SUV we had been looking for.

Pros: Lot of Horsepower, Nice Ride and lots of Amenities

Cons: No aftermarket outfitting such as Lifts (other than suspension)
