    2006 Nissan Pathfinder - LE 4x4

    Pros: 3rd row fold down seating - extra storage room and great for kids - they fight over who gets the 'last seat'

    Cons: The cheap windshield wipers. For vehicle that originally listed at over $40k

    Advice: If you do a lot of driving

    I bought an '06 used even though I was originally looking for a new '07 vehicle. Sales person showed it to me - has every bell and whistle you can possibly think of, except for a v8 - and the v6 gets just good enough gas mileage for the large amount of driving I do. It also has plenty of power and tork. Had I not driven this 1st, I would have missed out on 1 excellent ride! It also handles EXCELLENT in the snow!

    2006 Nissan Pathfinder - SE 4x2

    Pros: Hatchback door like other SUV's, but door can stay closed and rear window can open! Perfect room in the back seat for my 10 year old!

    Cons: Front doors are very short, and I have to duck to get in, and I am only 6 feet tall. Cannot be over 5 feet tall and sit in the back seat comfortably with a 2nd person.

    Advice: Get the luggage racks, before you buy. Dealer will say 'I'll get you some' but he is lying.

    Good strong SUV! Runs very tight, with good response from the engine. The last gear on the transmission could kick down a little more. Driving 60 mph only gets the tach down to just over 2000. Have achieved 22 mpg, but never 23. Never less than 18 though. Luggage on top really takes a chunk out of the mileage. Get a rack that attaches to the tow bar. Anti-lock brakes work great, as well as the VDC control, which keeps you from over accelerating/braking and losing control.

    2006 Nissan Pathfinder - LE 4x4

    Pros: Powerful 6 cyl. engine

    Cons: Cheap plastic door insides and other cheap plastic knobs

    Advice: Offer invoice price these things aren't moving off lot real fast. Be patient they will call you.

    Top quality and safety for the money. Everything for a family with smaller children and still power for dad to find those remote hiking trails in the mountains. Mom likes leather seats and controls on the steering wheel. Kids love roominess and amenities for them. Not for 6 adults, and gas mileage isn't great, but better than Ford and Dodge. Pilot is too wussy looking and doesn't appear great for the off road.

    2006 Nissan Pathfinder - S 4x4

    Pros: power

    Cons: The look of the car

    Advice: not for you if very worried about gas mileage

    The ride can feel a bit harsh, but expected because it's a real S.U.V. Power is is very nice. Did fine in the sand dunes.
