2003 Nissan Pathfinder Problems

Engine won't crank due to starter relay failure
The engine may not crank when the key is turned to "start" if the starter relay fails. This can be confused with a defective starter motor.
Check Engine Light Due to Faulty Fuel Level Sensor

The fuel level sensor can fail causing erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings. The Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Nissan has recalled 2006 - 2008 vehicles only for this fuel gauge issue. For more information on the recall, please click here»

Check Engine Light Due to Failed EVAP Canister Vent Valve

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a defective charcoal canister vent control valve. The charcoal canister is a component in the Evaporative emissions (EVAP) system.  Our technicians tell us a failed vent valve will require replacement.

2003 Nissan Pathfinder Reviews

I am the second owner, 75,000 miles with only normal wear, exhaust system is rusting prematurely.
Overall my pathfinder has been great. I bought it with 14k and it now has 121k, I did have to put a new exhaust on it at 80k which ive heard is very common with this year. All in all its been great only complaint is gas mileage which i wish was a little better. Id buy another one without a doubt.
