"My parents purchased this car brand new in 2001 as our first family car. My dad meticulously cared for the car with all the engine maintenance on time. He only drove the car around the neighborhood, to work and back home in the same town hence the low mileage (77,500K miles). Interior is still in great condition. Engine runs smoothly.
Exterior has taken tolls from the weather of Boston with rust on the side, however nothing major that affects the car."
Cons: "Leaking Seals had to be fixed several times"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"In 2001, I purchased my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder used in which it had about 14,000. Now, August 2015 "Betsy" has approximately 470,000 miles. I travel and so many miles have been added and I have always felt safe driving her across the state. About 2 years ago, I was having the oil changed and the business called and told me "We are sorry but it is on the rack and will not go in reverse". The transmission went out and I thought oh no it may be time to put her down but she is still going strong. I have written Nissan a letter about the wonderful reliability of "Betsy" about 2 months ago but this must be a norm...no word from them.
I had a Nissan Pathfinder before this one that had about 200,000. You cannot go wrong with this SUV and still looks good."
"We bought this Pathfinder used (4 years old) with the intention of driving it for 5 to 7 years. It's now going on 14 years. We had the tranny rebuilt at 170,000 because everything else was in mint condition and we love the vehicle. Gas mileage wasn't great (18.25 over the time we drove it) but not bad. We towed a pop-up, a haulin trailer, and a boat, and drove it on the lakes in the winter. Never let us down! I'd buy another Pathfinder in a heartbeat but I want a diesel with a higher tow rating."
"Bought it new in 2000, have driven 100K miles in 15 years. Very reliable, sturdy, drives very well. The radio/cd and power windows , seatbelt switch needed repair. Overall it still runs very strong and reliable."
