Dependable 03 Nissan pathfinder-keeps on ticking!

I bought my car used and it had 145,000 miles on it. I have had it for almost 6 years. It has been a very good vehicle. It has many features like sunroof, power windows and seats and my favorite -heated seats! It has a 6 CD changer in it but it no longer works. The previous owner had Sirius radio and so I guess BC whatever was done to install that has caused the regular radio not to get great reception. Mechanically the car is great and has needed the usual maintenance but I have not had any major problems. One issue it does have is the gas gauge has stopped being accurate and pretty much all together now. I watch my mileage to determine when to fill up again. I believe it can be pricey to fix. The car is starting to show rust and I recently had to have my windshield repaired due to a crack from a snowstorm. I was shown the car with the windshield out and told these cars are notorious for water getting in under the windshield and running along the roof lines. Evidence I can now see in the staining of the headliner. My car now has 230,000 miles and is still my daily driver. Overall I love this vehicle and would consider getting another.

Very fun to drive and it handles very well.

My pathfinder is very reliable, it is a very trustworthy SUV, it has 248 horsepower and has the get up and go power but yet is still decent on the gas consumption. I get anywhere from 18 to 20 miles to the gallon. It is also very comfortable to drive. It has a sunroof and leather seats that are power controlled. The ac works very well and will freezes you out. It is got a few quirks that are it is down side. One is the Bose radio 6 CD changer with tape player. The CD player works when it wants to, does not matter what CD you put in, and the tape player likes to eat up tapes. Also it would have been nice if Nissan had put an auxiliary plug in the radio. But when it does work the sound quality is excellent. Another downfall is the shocks and struts. To replace the front struts it is very expensive even if you are a mechanic it is still costly to purchase them and why are the drivers side more expensive than the passengers side?? But other than these few little things I am very happy with the pathfinder.

I enjoy that it can fit up to 7 people if needed and also all seats fold down.

Really disappointed with the center console dials that allow me to adjust the front and back air conditioning/heat/etc. I end up having to stare at them which causes a safety hazard. I do enjoy the sunroof and my speakers are good too for when I want to listen to music. I also enjoy that there are two extra seats in the back that pop up. It is also convenient to put down all the seats in the back for storage and room. I am able to sleep in the back when I need and also move large items. It is also convenient that I can tow things with my Nissan Pathfinder.
