Still runs and looks good after almost 14 years.

I have had my pathfinder for many years now. I enjoy driving it and it has performed well over the years. Nissan has been a good choice for my husband and myself. If you maintain your vehicle and keep up on oil changes etc. You can drive a Nissan for a very long time. I would buy another Nissan if looking for a new vehicle. I have not had any major issues come up. We have owned three now so far.

It is engine is very powerful and fast.

I really like my car it is very spacious and very comfortable and reliable and can go through tuff terrain and I have been in accidents before and my car has always made me feel safe even in the snow and even in heavy rain storms my car has always proven to get me from point A to point B and my mom has owned the car before me and even though it is 13 years old it still runs perfectly.

- Michael D

It is very versatile and can fit the needs of many different people.

I love that I can drive an SUV that fits all my needs. The third row provides room for more people but also folds down to provide lots of room for whatever I may need to haul-boxes, building supplies, groceries, furniture-there's really a lot of room! I love that it is an SUV but really feels and drives more like a car. It gets great gas mileage for an SUV, too.
