The 2004 PathFinder Never Dies

2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE

The pathfinder in terms of reliability has been incredible. We bought it used years ago and it currently has more than 230,000 miles, but it's still working. The performance is also pretty good, we've taken it 5 hours upstate a couple of times and it has never failed us. We've had a couple of our past cars break down on us on the highway, but the pathfinder has never left us stranded. It's also absolutely amazing in the snow. The only problems we have really experienced with it have been a result of just generally having the car for a really long time. For example, the air conditioning broke once, and the brakes have progressively gotten worse over time. But again, it has 230,000 miles on it. The pathfinder is not really all that comfortable, but we bought it for the purpose of being able to last us through our trips upstate, and it has fulfilled that purpose. The newer Nissan Pathfinders are MUCH more comfortable, and are probably just as durable, so I would recommend looking into one of those. Lastly, there aren't many features especially considering the 2004 is so old, but it's good for what it is.

Fun, wobbly little four wheel drive car!

2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE

The Nissan Pathfinder is a very cute, and fun, little car. It has had some part recalls and stuff like that, like for example the passenger side airbag has an issue that causes it to be recalled where when the airbag deploys in the event of a crash or something, it does deploy the airbag but also causes shards of metal to fly at your face... as if the crash itself was not bad enough! Another problem that our Pathfinder has had is that when you are driving on the highway/freeway at highway speeds, the car wobbles back and forth like CRAZY and the car becomes more difficult for the driver to control. It's pretty annoying and scary and disconcerting. Other than the time the engine randomly caught on fire for unknown reasons, the car has been pretty reliable in the time that we have had it. The sunroof is super nice to have and so is the extra cargo space.

I hope this car lasts me for years to come because it is WONDERFUL!

2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE

I've had the car since 2010. Since then I have had to have the engine and radiator replaced but I've also been involved with two major collisions and I walked away fine. It has been an absolutely wonderful vehicle. It is a little heavy on gas meaning I have to fill up after about 5 hours of driving but reliable and little tear on the actual vehicle. I've moved from SC to NC in the vehicle and I could fit a vast amount of stuff in the trunk and back seat.

Always reliable and plenty of power on the road and towing.

2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE

I love the vehicle. Bought it brand new and have only had minor issues. The engine is perfect in size. It has a 3.5 liter engine and is a 5 seater. Very comfortable and plenty of power. It has never broke down on me and has been put to the test a lot . It's a great off road vehicle and is ideal for road trips and camping as well. Plenty of storage room and also has roof racks for more storage.. it is automatic everything inside and is a very nimble SUV.

My 2004 Nissan Pathfinder has a little personality and talks to me. I love it.

2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE

Runs good and drives good. It has had new alternator and belt. It has new battery. It does not have Ac but only due to fan broke and it can be fixed very happy inexpensively and easily. It has 4 good tires and four Wheel drive it had cloth seats and is in the color of grey.
