I never want to say goodbye!!

Overall performance of my pathfinder le has been exemplary! It was the first vehicle I learned how to drive, and I have always felt safe in it. The only problem I have ever had consistently with it is that there is a leak coming from above the overhead compartment, and this only ever occurred when the vehicle was parked on a decline after a heavy and long rain period. Does not happen while driving. Be aware that the GPS system must be updated occasionally in order to get the best correct results. The vehicle is equipped with an amazing heating/air system that heats/cools very quickly and I have always been more satisfied with the short time it takes to get to the desired temperature than in any other car. (also has rear air/heat controls) the seats are also equipped with heating technology which I have used a few times and have enjoyed. One thing I have always appreciated is that the driver's window has the ability to fully open/close with only one press of the button instead of having to hold it down. (may seem like an unimportant factor but I absolutely love it!) Same thing is true for opening and closing the sunroof. Ability to control the side view mirrors down to the smallest angle from the driver's seat is a huge plus. Another feature I use often is the "trip" feature, which, along with how far you've gone, tells you exactly how many miles of gas you have left. On safety: I have always felt safe in this car. There have been times where the wind has been so strong that I could feel the tension on the steering wheel, and yet the car always felt stable. There have been many situations in which I have thought to myself, wow, I am so thankful I was in this car during that. This vehicle has never disappointed me and I have enjoyed every drive!!

Nissan pathfinder are amazing vehicles!

I have had this nissan pathfinder for about ten years. I love the size of the car and the fact that it has a third row. It enables me to be able to put all the kids I watch in there and feel safe while. Doing so. I love having a sunroof as it gives me that extra breeze. I have had some problems with the hearing and air system. It is too expensive for me to have it fixed and I do not know if it is a general problem or a defect with the nissan pathfinders that year. The car has over 200 thousand miles on it so it has thus been super reliable in that aspect. So besides the hearing and air the car has not had any major issues his the basic wear and tear. I wish I could keep this car forever but reality of it is I cannot. I would recommend this car and year to anyone looking for a 3rd row SUV.

Love the Silver with metallic sparkle paint.

I have almost 189,000 miles on my truck. I didn't start having problems with it until I reached 130k. I had to replace the timing chain and alternator at this time. Wheel bearings and shocks. At 183k-185k I had to replace the spark plugs and oxygen sensor. Also the catalytic converters went. My truck still has a nice ride for the age and mileage, its safe and dependable. Very spacious inside. 3 rows if needed Plenty of trunk space. Nissan is my preferred brand. Normal wear tear, brakes, tires etc.
