We've bought the car with 10,000 miles on it. I t just now eclipsed 160,000 miles. Very dependable. It's built like a tank. It's our third Pathfinder. Our second was completely totaled due to a wreck resulting from black ice. The car did donuts, hit a truck, went into a sign and ended up in a ditch. My wife walked away without a scratch. Only time its broken down is mid summer due to towing in extreme heat. We were within a few hundred pounds of max towing. Being over 10 years old, I suppose our car just couldn't handle towing any longer. The paint is of the best quality we've ever had in a car. Absolutely no rust anywhere, though it has been garaged most times. The interior has held up well. The only major problems has been the fan going out in the heating system and the doors that open and close to direct air.
Yes, I would recommend this car.

Cheesy latch on storage compartment near shifter broke. Brakes had caliper hang up and damage rotor resulting in need to replace them. Drivers side rear window does not go up/down with driver front button. Exhaust system seems to rust pretty heavily but has not been replaced yet. Water lines for rear heater are leaking costs $500 to replace with a kit. 1200 for all new lines. Other than the unnecessarily expensive cost of parts, it's been a good vehicle. Maybe not for the price though.

2005 nissan pathfinder...total electrical system burnout 7 days after replaceing the rely switch module! What would cause this?? Truck has 102,000 miles on it and has had no major issues until now.Nissan is saying anti-freez has gotten into the transmission due to the electrical motor malfunction and it is no longer any good. The car is still in virtually good shape, but with an est.$10,000 repair bill what is a person to do!!

Overall good. Issues I've had: 1) Bad fuel-level sensor means Check Engine Soon light is always on, and I have no idea how much gas is in the car. 500-800 to fix. 2) The climate control system is terrible. You have no way to control the temperature of the breeze coming out of the vents. If you set it at 65 degrees, it could pour out hellish heat, or it could pour out cold air based entirely on what its not-so-brilliant computer thinks it should do. They need to simplify. Let the driver determine how hot/cold they want the air to be. Other than those 2 things, its been good. 112,000 miles (though I've had to replace the serpentine belt twice).

Do not buy one! I am replacing the radiator and transmission at 56,000 miles! It is still under warranty but Nissan is not standing by their word or product.

An excellent vehicle upgrade with this new body frame. We were looking to get a Pathfinder based off the overwhelming great reviews, and we're glad we did. We love it! The air conditioner controls are a bit whack, but we survive.
