Pros: Steering wheel controls and the 17' tires that come with the Supercharged Engine package
Cons: Narrow entry into the back seat...but it's dueable
Advice: Buy it you will love itI first test drove the normal SE V6 but then I switched to the SE V6 Supercharged and there was a huge difference in the power. The acceleration was great, it was definitely the best out of all the SUV's I had driven (Pathfinder, Bravada, Rodeo). The supercharged engine is definitely worth the extra money.
Cons: Quality of leather
Advice: I just had it for 4 months but there has been no problems at all yet. If you considering to keep a vechile to keep for a long period of time, i would definetly say to go for Pathfinder.Is this a Suv or a car was what I asked first when I test drove it. It has a body of Suv but drives like a car. It blew my mind. I loved it and bought it immediatelty without any doubt and no regrets at all.
Pros: Navigation System
Cons: Premium Gas
Advice: Value, Quality, Reliabity if you this things than Pathfinder is the best.I test drove every midsize suv out there, but pathfinder was the best for me. I knew this was the right vechile for me. This is my fourth nissan vechile that I have purchased. I would definetly refer to people to take a test drive once before going for any other suvs.
Pros: The fact that it sits up high, but does not ride like other SUVs that I have ridden in.
Cons: The end of the seatbelt attached to the floor needs to stick up higher.
Advice: Go for it. You will love it. I do.I have enjoyed driving this SUV. It handles like a car. The handling abilities exceed what I expected from an SUV.
Pros: Body style and roof rack
Cons: armrest on the doors...old style
Advice: Buy it!!!!The V6 Manual that I test drove was fantastic. It has a lot of kick. The dashboard is very simple and the environmental controls are easy to operate.
Pros: THOSE KILLER 17 INCH WHEELS (LE MODEL ONLY)
Cons: SOFT SHIFTING AUTOTRANS, REAR BRAKE DRUMS
Advice: IF YOU WANT 4WD FULL TIME, BUY THE LEREAR DRUM BRAKES? WILL SOMEBODY TELL NISSAN THAT IT'S 2002 ALREADY? I LOVE THIS TRUCK. IT HAS LOOKS, POWER, HANDLING, RIDE, KILLER 17' WHEELS (LE TRIM) GOOD SOUND SYSTEM, AND IT FEELS LIKE IT'S CARVED OUT OF A SOLID PIECE OF STEEL......HOWEVER, THE AUTO-TRANS SHIFTS LIKE A PARTIALLY MELTED STICK OF BUTTER ON A HOT SUMMER DAY. NISSAN NEEDS TO FIRM UP THE SHIFTS IN THIS VEHICLE! THE BRAKES, WHILE STOPPING THE TRUCK NICELY, HAVE EXCESSIVE PEDAL TRAVEL AND 'THOSE REAR DRUMS' EVEN LOW END VEHICLES HAVE 4 WHEEL DISCS THESE DAYS! NISSAN, FIRM UP THE SHIFTS, TRASH THOSE REAR BRAKE DRUMS IN FAVOR OF DISCS, AND WHILE YOUR AT IT.......THROW IN A POWER RADIO ANTENNA FOR 32 GRAND!
Pros: Grill Guards
Cons: Slow exceleration...Especially on the highway.
Advice: BUY IT!!!The dealer let me take it home over night...what a great way to sell a car!
