I own this car - My approximate mileage is 112,100overall rating 10 of 10rating details
Pros: "If newer models like 2003 model, very reliable."
Cons: "Newer model Pathfinders look like vans. Hate it!"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"Love this car and it saddens me that I am replacing her. It's almost treasonous. It's a 2003 and has never, ever had a mechanical problem. Runs fantastic! Body wearing out from the salt in the air, but that's minor. 112083 miles, but am sure she could go another 100k miles easily. Only reason I'm reluctantly replacing her is that I need to down-size to a more fuel efficient, economical car. Really, really going to miss this car. The newer model Pathfinders look like vans. Big mistake in the redesign by Nissan. Otherwise, 10 to 1, would have thrown the whole economical issue out the window and got another Pathfinder."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 145,000overall rating 9 of 10rating details
Pros: "plenty of power, bose sound system"
Cons: "GAS MILEAGE"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"Purchased this Platinum Edition model a month ago from a hyundai dealer and love it. It was a one owner car and boy did they keep up with every little thing on it. the 3.5 v6 makes it seems like a high riding maxima but with more space, steering input is spot on and fit and finish is better than most new cars. Friend of mine's mom bought a 2014 rav4 and i'd take this 10 year old pathfinder over that car any day. though gas milage does leave more to be desired but hey this body style was introduced in 96 when gas was actually somewhat affordable. if you want a pathfinder, definitely consider an 03-04."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 267,000overall rating 10 of 10rating details
Pros: "great acceleration, reliable, great in snow"
Cons: "prone to underbody rust"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have been driving for over 30 years and this is one of the most dependable vehicles I have ever owned. The acceleration is great and I have never been stranded in a snow storm! I was rear-ended (hard!) about 6 years ago, and sustained over $6000. in body damage...my insurance fixed the vehicle and I continued to drive it with no problems. I have owned this vehicle for 12 years and I am considering selling it now only because I want 3 seats and a built in navigation system."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 256,000overall rating 10 of 10rating details
Pros: "Reliable and durable"
Cons: "Poor Mileage"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Best, most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. It has 257,000 miles on it and hasn't needed any major repairs. Tranny still good. Spent some money on getting oil leaks repaired over the years, but consider that fairly typical for the use it's gotten. The Unified Meter Control (Cluster), $365, was replaced about 2 years ago because the dashboard gauges went out, and the only time it didn't start right up for me was when the Distributor Assembly failed, bad ignition coil, needed to be replaced at 247,000 miles. Gas mileage was poor at 13 miles per gallon. Very reliable, well made, and love the vehicle."
