"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."

Pros: "Great in New England snow, roomy, dependable"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, underpowered, rust"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Bought this car as a 3 year returned lease. Carfax was not accurate because car had been in accident and later the body began rusting badly in that area along with rocker panels and over wheel wells. Mechanically I put no money into this car except exhaust parts and tires. It started every time and ran well except that the engine was underpowered. Bigger engine came out the following year. It is now 16 years old and still running well but rusting. One of the most dependable cars I've ever owned. Seats could have been more comfortable though."

"I owned and loved my 97 pathy. i was so prideful in that beaut.. it was the perfect size and i loved the way it looked. After owning it for about a year i recently totaled it .. I miss my pathy. she was a great rig, never had any problems besides codes for a knock sensor. Gas mileage sucked but i loved that thing regardless. would like to own one again maybe."

Cons: "storage space, gas"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Great 4wd, feels very sturdy, fun to drive, changed tires to in/out off-road and still rides nice. Family loves the "old truck" (it comes with the child seat latches. Does nor have much storage space as far as the glove box and center console goes and the small storage in the trunk is good enough for jumper cables. Not the best in gas. Gasoline gage didn't work had to get a new return valve, I think is a common issue."
